“Very slow service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

Visited this Cafe to purchase a couple of sandwiches to takeaway on a boat trip. Ordered a tuna sandwich and a chicken mayo sandwich. 15 mins later the sandwich arrived!!!! Not sure if they sent out to Balloch or even Dumbarton for it.......how long can it take to make two sandwiches.
At £3 each, was rather overpriced and not particularly tasty.Tuna and the Chicken badly lacked seasoning and therefore left a very overpriced sandwich bland and fairly unappetising.

“Great tea and scone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

I found the tea and scone to be a great hit! the scone was really fresh and went well with clotted cream and jam. it can be pricey here though. Great views of Loch Lomond

“Nice for a cuppa while shopping”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

Visited here last week with my sister for afternoon tea while shopping at Loch Lomond Shores. The cafe itself is a basic store tearoom but the views over the loch make it that bit special. Our refreshments were acceptable and the cake that went with them very tasty.
