We were on Mull to visit Tobermory and had time before the return ferry so went wandering. We were enjoying the single track lanes looking for wildlife when we discovered this gem. We had cakes, teas, coffee and juice. All excellent and served with a smile. Wide range of products on offer. Toilets nice and clean. Warm welcome from all... More

The cobwebs having been thoroughly blown away on stunning Calgary Beach, we retired to the cafe for coffee and cake while wating for the bus back to Tobermory. Briggt, clean, modern, warm. Lovely selection of teas and coffees, and plenty of fine cakes to choose from. Worth a visit to reward yourself after exertions on the beach or headlabd path.

We stopped here for lunch after visiting Calgary beach close by. It was the best meal we had during our stay on Mull. The food was absolutely delicious and full of interesting ingredients and flavours. We have one fussy eater who enjoyed her ham and cheese panini and said it was the best ever. The rest of us made the... More

For a quick cuppa befor/after stretching your legs out on Calgary beach or stopping for a lunch, the tea room has plenty of delicious options from which to choose! Take time to look around the gallery too with plenty to see and purchase.

For sake of clarity this is a review about the Calgary Tea Rooms which form part of a little enclave which also includes self catering accommodation, an art gallery and a sculpture trail - all marked on the map as Calgary Art in Nature which is listed separately on TA. There is parking on the opposite side of the road... More

I must agree with the previous contributor......it is very difficult to find anywhere on TripAdvisor to post a review, so I too have gone for this in the hope the owners might read it as we were overall quite disappointed in it. Yes, the location, view, etc is simply stunning and the owners apparently like to be Eco- friendly, but... More

We visited here following a walk and to see what the place was like, as we stayed here several years ago, when it was an excellent hotel with a wonderful menu, and lunches across the courtyard. For one of our party, the ice cream bought was out of date and tasted so. He was able to look at the date,... More

Popped in after an afternoon with the kids on Calgary's beautiful beach. We'd all found the cafes on Mull in general to be pretty mediocre. This is an exception. Great tea and coffee and wonderful cakes - best we'd had on the island. And that's after testing them all daily for over 2 weeks. Good art gallery and craft centre... More

Lovely location and very handy for Calgary beach! The coffee was great and the cake looked tempting. Service was a little slow but overall a good experience.
