“Fantastic location ”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Fantastic location for the cafe. Great to visit after hiking or cycling on the isle before getting the ferry back. Wonderful coffee & scones and the homemade vanilla & rhubarb jam was awesome!

“Island gem”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

An excellent choice of meals to suit every taste. Inexpensive wines and a good selection of beers. Every visit to Hoy should include a meal at the Beneth'ill Cafe.

“Excellent cafe”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Given that this place exercises a virtual monopoly in North Hoy, they could get away with the bare minimum; instead, they offer appealing refreshments at reasonable prices in a bright, clean environment with cheerful, obliging service. After a long cycle ride this was a sight for sore eyes (not all that was sore!)

“Great location, place, food and welcome !!!!!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We were on our way to Rackwick to then walk to the Old Man of Hoy when we spotted a sign saying "Café". We followed the signs and arrived at this lovely, homely place where we given a lovely greeting. This was an hour before the place should have opened. The café is next to a gorgeous beach, a stunning location.

We had bacon butties and a cuppa each which was lovely. Great place to stop.
