Artisan bakery and restaurant tucked away in a corner in Portree - but what a find! Delicious cheese platter with samples of five Scottish Cheeses, home made bread, chutney and oatcakes with fresh leaf salad. Beautifully set out on a wooden platter. Delicious! Well worth the money!

The servers at this small eatery were exceptionally accommodating in helping my husband and I put together a selection of items for an informal takeaway lunch. The homemade stuffed breads were delicious, especially with the several types of jams and chutneys they packed for us. They put together a fresh green salad with a delicious dressing, even though I asked for components that weren't technically on their menu. All in all, we were provided with a tasty and delightfully healthy lunch at an extremely reasonable price! We also enjoyed visiting their small art gallery on the bakery's second floor, and exploring the array of local arts and crafts.

Had a very nice blueberry scone at lunchtime here. Staff are very nice, but I found the choice quite limited, hence going for the scone. Found the seats quite uncomfortable, but others without a back problem may not.

The bread always looks amazing that they bake. However, I bought a very small 'artisan seeded loaf' for £3 from the clan donald fair, which was as dry as cardboard. So despite the fact the bread looks lovely, have steered clear of it now, as it's waaaaaay to expensive to buy & chuck away.

Wow, what fabulous bread! We had coffee and some nibbles then bought a selection of the bakery's wonderful artisan breads to take home. Having picked up a selection of olives, pates and seafood to go with the amazing bread we enjoyed a perfect evening meal on our holiday cottage terrace with the setting sun spotlighting our stunning view of the Sound of Sleat. Simply said - just perfect food - hats off to the whole team!
