Called in here for lunch without any great expectations but happy to say we were wrong. A nice airy and clean cafe with that fabulous view. Our lunches were both good, served by pleasant and friendly staff. Well worth dropping in.

Nice friendly staff, we stopped in for coffee in the morning and came back in the afternoon. Fresh and wholesome sandwiches. Superb views too.

Despite being a poor day, it was rapidly improved by a visit in here. Not exactly cheap, but don’t exactly go there every day . So, a lovely wee visit, recommended.

Stopped off here after walking around the Isle of Lismore. A real find, coffee was really good and so was the mars bar cake! All served quickly by friendly staff. The view, even in drizzle is a great bonus.

Living locally, I've been a frequent customer here ever since it first opened. Sadly, this year (2018) the menu has been drastically reduced. I'll still eat here from time to time, but with less pleasure and less choice.More

We called in here last year but it was so lovely we returned. The views from the cafe are really special and the fare on offer is good. It made for a good refreshment stop.

There are precious few nice places to stop and eat on this stretch of road, but this is a lovely place. They serve proper well cooked local foods and you do not have to wait until 12:00 for the lunches (which is a pest if...More
