Came here for a cake and cuppa. The Raspberry and Chocolate brownie is to die for! Will definitely come back

We visited the Go Bananas soft play which is run by the bridge cafe with my 4 and 7 year old children. The soft play itself is small and suited to younger children but it was clean and had a good seating area. The kids...really enjoyed it. We had coffee and cake from the cafe downstairs which was really tasty and the staff were all helpful and friendly.More

We came with a group of 10 (6 adults, 4 kids between 1 and 75) and all had a great time. The food was great and the playground upstairs is amazing! Wish we'd have a place like this in our home town!

My husband and I stopped here while waiting for the Oban to Mull ferry. The coffee was wonderful. Smooth and not a hint of bitterness. Will be calling in in our way back

When it comes to letting children let some steam off and have lunch, Oban does not offer anything better. Unfortunately on national scale ... this is a preety poor facility and certainly not worth the money it is being charged for. where do i start?...1. Kid's meals really are not great at all.. not to metion there is No healthy option to choose from. 2. Its rather expensive. Children are charged as young as 1yr and its only for 1.5 hrs. This is how long it takes sometimes to feedmy kids. And where is the play time? 3. There isn't a bathroom/nappy changing facility upstairs (yes you have to take stairs for kid's play area), so for me with 2 kids under 3 it was a major hassle. 4. Kid's area closes at 15.00. No hance for a play after a nap then for my kids ... Other than that the cafe is pleasant enough and food is .. well average.More

Wonderful softplay for younger children. In addition to the normal softplay there is a room of toys, a ball pit, a big flat area for toy cars and trikes, etc - kept my two happy for hours. All clean and well set up. There are...also comfy sofas and nice coffee delivered from the cafe for parents. Cafe downstairs was very nice and made delicicous toasties. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, particular brownie points for posting the shoes we left back to us FOC. Don't be put off by the location (on a retail park between Tesco and lidl) - this is an easy walk from the centre of town and a great find, particularly for keeping children happy on a rainy day!More

Don’t be confused by the outward appearance, or the location between Tesco and Lidl. This place serves lovely food and great coffee. The staff are very attentive. Do yourself a favour and visit.

In fact my husband said the best coffee he's had in a good while. We met a friend for coffee and bacon roll in the morning, and was so good we came back for lunch! Great atmosphere, good service, good food and fabulous coffee! Love...it. Sadly we were up visiting family so don't live in Oban, but we'll be back anytime we're up.More
