Stopped here en route to Skye. Easy to miss but easy to park! An old chapel, complete with its old harmonium. Good for coffee or a light lunch, Friendly, helpful staff. We enjoyed the quiche of the day.

We stopped here mid walk for food and had the most delicious panini and quiche, followed by cakes and coffee. Staff were friendly and attentive, without being over the top and the atmosphere was relaxed. Please do not be put off by bitchy reviews, they...almost put us off but so glad we weren't! Delicious!More

Stopped in on the way home from Fort William. Arrived just before 4. Even though it was almost closing time - 4 o'clock - we still had a friendly welcome, tea and cake. Planning to go back soon and take some time having a look...over the art and things on display.More

One of those joys to stumble over accidentally. The converted chapel is always a bit too cold inside but the warmth is made up by the staff, food offerings, helpfulness and knick-knacks to tempt the cash from your 'Contactless'. I had wonderful spicy soup with...GF oatcakes. There was plenty of it and was very satisfying. I resisted the cakes but had a good coffee to finish off. Lots of C19 protection in place. Always flowers around whatever time of year. Be careful of the track when the puddles are full. Oh, and remember where it is. Don't miss it !More

We stumbled across this beautiful cafe in the middle of my birthday trip. We had not eaten breakfast and were looking for both food and cake following an exploration of Falls of Falloch. Excellent covid measures in place and plenty of signage and products, even...in the bathrooms, to keep you feeling safe. The venue itself is unique, stunning and kept it's original charm whilst still being clearly well maintained. There were chickens roaming outside and lots of lovely little vintage details in the decor. The little shop provided locally sourced edibles and crafts. We bought some jam and my girlfriend bought me a beautiful little pin for my birthday. The food.... Oh my. The only problem here was I wanted a bit of every cake! We both opted for coffee and walnut cake and we're not disappointed. It just looked too perfect to miss and it really was! Excellent balance of sweetness and frosting to compliment the perfect sponge filled with delicious walnut pieces. Highly recommend. The slices were a good size too! We both had toasties which we devoured alongside the yummy kettle style crisps. My only downside is that this place is too far to become my regular haunt! 😂More

Came across this cafe between Crianlarich and Tyndum on the A82, it is a converted chapel down a dirt track but is well sign posted! Had a panini/toastie with a side salad and crisps (my partner requires a gluten free diet and they had plenty...of gf options including cakes!), It was a little expensive (£16.50 for panini, toastie and two teas) but would still totally recommend!More

Great food & nice size portions for lunch. Great off the road stop just outside Tyndrum. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Little cold inside..

Most places on the A82 are very busy to get into particularly weekends or bank holidays especially when you can see all the cars parked on the side of the main road. We were lucky to find the Artisan Cafe. We needed to find a...stop which would be suitable for dog owners and a quick bite to eat enroute. There are seating outside for ourselves and our dog. All staff has masks on. They catered for my gluten and dairy intolerances and served a nice panini / toasties with a good Scottish blend cup of tea. This may become our regular stir enroute from the mainland to the islands.More

Stopped off here on our journey without knowing anything about it. What a lovely surprise! Three gorgeous chickens wandering around outside the beautifully converted chapel. The staff were really friendly, the coffee was the best we’ve had so far, and the cakes were excellent. A...good selection of eco and craft products as well. I’d definitely plan a stop here again if we’re ever in the area.More

Lovely quirky little place with really nice food but we had quite a shock at the bill. 2 soups & a sandwich, 2 drinks and a piece of cake......£37. Should have said something at the time but was a bit taken aback to say anything...at the time.More

Sorry about that Charlie, I wonder if there was a mistake made at the till? Pretty much everything we offer is homemade and we try very hard to keep the prices reasonable.
