“A Genuine Treat”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Connie, Michael (and Laura this year) made our two lunchtime visits this February and absolute pleasure. All the food is sourced from local providers and is put together perfectly. We had a party of 9 and with advanced bookings were catered for perfectly. The sandwiches are a joy to behold and for those as greedy as us, finishing the meal with a slice of cake (from what is always a good selection) is the perfect way to end...
Our hosts went the extra mile to make the children feel welcome (my eldest is 4 1/2 and youngest 20 months) and my eldest loved it as much as we did...
Thanks guys - it was a pleasure as always and we hope to see you all again next year for much more of the same :)

Everything to praise and nothing to fault. Excellent home made cakes, fresh tasty soup and sandwiches. Lovely owners. warm log fire which was very much welcomed in bitterly cold December weather .Highly recommended.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

This place is well worth a visit. The food is fantastic and the couple who run the place are so welcoming. They're obviously really popular with the locals too as they new everyone who walked threw the door, by their first name. Well worth a visit.

“First Class”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Years ago, before going into the wilderness to fish, we visited this coffee shop - its was excellent then. We came back for a short holiday in Poolewe and returned to Bridge Cottage Coffee shop - it is quite the best. The past two day we had lunch - excellent soups and cakes to die for. Today we decided as a finale we would take breakfast in BCC - I have never, not even in the best of hotels, tasted such beautiful and smooth scrambled egg with smoked salmon.
The menu is of the best and local quality, you know this in the tasting, the owners who serve you are professional, friendly, and non invasive.
We are 'foodies' could say we know our stuff, this Coffee Shop is absolutely excellent.

“Cakes and art!”
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.
