Highly recommend. Super friendly staff, and coffee was awesome too - recommend a double shot mocha. Shop stocked with tons of local produce. Well worth a visit.

Many thanks for your review. Great to see you back.

We searched for the best breakfast (or brunch, to be fair, we were looking for a late morn8ng breakfast) in Oban, and hot breakfast rolls from this little café came up. We went along, found what looks like a foodie gift shop more than a...cafe, but sure enough around the back of the shop is a café area, and their hot breakfast rolls were just fantastic. It’s a take-away, so grab your breakfast rolls and it on a bench watching the ferries, we did, and it was lovely. We had tattie scone & bacon baps, and flat whites, and we were so surprised - these are the best tattie scones we’ve ever had. Great bacon too, and the flat whites were surprisingly great, all in all, a very reasonable price in an unexpected spot for an excellent breakfast.More

We have eaten here a few times before, & always enjoyed the home made food. So glad to see them still in business, having adapted to a take away service. The soup was hot & delicious, as were the toasties. We'll be back next time...we visit Oban!More

Had cheese/cheese & ham toasties to take away - not the cheapest but so worth it as good quality local produce. Much better than a toastie from a chain coffee shop!! Also incredibly friendly staff.

The best cafe in Oban. Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff who make you feel very welcome. The food is reasonably priced, portions good and they’re really good with dietary requirements. Highly recommend a stop here if you’re in the area.

We didn't do that, however the que seemed to sit long enough to at least run and get some food. It is very close to the que. I'm not sure if there are any rules about leaving your car.

I think so. If not? There are benches immediately outside where you could sit with your dog.
