We only had coffee and a scone here which were delicious. The scone was warmed for us and was really tasty. Melas bing served to other customers looked delicious and portions were over sized. Would recommend this little restaurant,

Popped in for coffee and a cake and have to say only a very limited choice available although it was a bit later in the afternoon. Dry scone, coconut marshmallow or the largest slice of chocolate crispy you've ever seen. Coffee was a disappointment I'm afraid.

It's nothing to write home about really but if you're in a pinch, it will do. It appears that breakfast is served all day as well in case that's of interest.....

Bowmore is a small town with few breakfast options, and in fact we walked by this place missing it on our first day. Paying it a visit on our second morning, the lady serving was friendly and welcoming. In our view it was more of a cafe. Opting for egg/ egg & sausage rolls they were tasty. Only disappointment would... More
