Nice coffee shop - stopped off there to after an initial walk round the southern end of the island before heading out into the northern end - tea and drinks were nice, cakes tasty but you need to be patient as was very busy - if you are in a group and want to eat outside then its best if one of your group gets a table while someone else queues and gets the order sorted. Atmosphere outside is (weather permitting) busy but very nice, and you will be graced by some very tame sparrows who also seem to enjoy the food as well!

Some unusual cakes and sandwiches (the chocolate and whisky pudding for example), good coffee and a yurt in the garden - what else is there? It'd get 5 stars from me just for the butter not being rock hard. Service can be slow but it's friendly and attentive; this is Lindisfarne, not Los Angeles.

Nothing special here although the chance to rest weary feet in the courtyard was nice. I'd try elsewhere

It was very busy when we called in and it took almost half an hour for the four people in front of us to be served. However once we were served the cheese scone was worth the wait. Haven't a problem with having a drink in a paper cup, it was still a decent cuppa.
The only drawback was the slow service
