“brilliant all day breakfast”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

very reasonable all day breakfast, very pleasant waitresses, very homely feeling. would not agree with view disappointing and rude. I m sure most men I have seen in it have not felt intimidated at all and most people are prepared to wait for freshly cooked food, better than heted up anyway. Prices I thought very reasonable. Soup and a sandwich for £5.00 is very good for anywhere now a days but of course each entitled to their own opinion.

“Excellent friendly service, nice fresh food”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

I must say I strongly disagree with the last review, yes there are lovely slate placemats and clean curtains and I myself a builder and a man do not feel intimidated by this. I have been to this establishment a few times and have had great service especially from the manager/owner and all staff for that matter. Food is cooked and made from fresh, and very reasonably priced. Will definitely be returning.

“Disappointing and Rude”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We visited Cambies for a quick bite to eat. The place now resembles a girly tea party with heart shaped placemats and lace curtains. It is certainly not a very inviting environment for men. The food was ok but expensive for what it is. We ordered tea but after 20 minutes had to go back and ask again only to be asked "did you pay for tea?" , there was only 1 other diner so it's not like it was overly busy. The manager / owners attitude was awful "I don't want builders in here" . Certainly will not be visiting again.

“Great soup and scones!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Called in at Cambies just off the boat from Ullapool, for a late lunch and the soup was just brilliant! This was followed by fruit scones and jam and these too were simply divine!
The staff were really friendly and were most helpful with directions for some of the local sights, not to mention the attentive service, in spite of the place being really busy!
Thank you Cambies, we really enjoyed our lunch!

“Great fresh food”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I have to disagree strongly with the previous reviewer. Just left ferry from Ullapool and wanted to find somewhere to eat so popped into Boots to get a local recommendation and they suggested Cambies. The menu was limited but the food was freshly cooked, tasted great and the staff were friendly. Would certainly strongly recommend for a snack or filling cafe meal at a reasonable price.
