“Cakes and art!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

We stopped here for a tea break on our journey north and we're really glad we did! Lovely small café serving the most delicious cakes - friendly, smiley staff and clearly a popular place with locals and visitors. Very impressed that they source much of their food locally and refuse to use genetically modified products. Gallery upstairs selling a range of pictures, crafts, cards and jewellery.

“Cake to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

Who ever bakes for this coffee shop deserves a medal. My Victoria sponge was perfect. Unbelievably light, moist and very tasty. This place rightly prides itself on using local produce and it shows. Service is impeccable with a refreshingly honest approach to customer service.

“Such cakes as dreams are made of”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

First visited the Bridge Cottage Cafe in 2012 and so made point of going again in 2013. It is small, friendly and the cakes are outstanding. I particularly like the emphasis on using local and seasonal produce.

“Fantastic cafe - fresh, homemade, inspiring food, done brilliantly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

We stumbled upon the Bridge Cottage Cafe after deciding against the canteen-like atmosphere of the Inverewe Garden restaurant. What a find - probably the best cafe food I've ever had! Fresh, mouthwatering sandwiches, tasty dips and fantastic cakes. The owners clearly love what they do and it shines through in the friendly service, the relaxed atmosphere and the quality of the food. don't miss it!

“yummy yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

We stopped here for lunch on our trip and had a baked potato, which my partner had, he said it was delicious, lovely local salad and home made dressing served with it as well. I had a wonderful sandwich with Brie, and then we both had an amazing bit of cake! so moist and delicious and really unusual flavour combinations. If we are back in the area we will call again for sure! Thank you.
