We popped in on our way to Skye. Some delicious cakes and tray bakes to choose from and can highly recommend the Malteser one. Good cuppa too, reasonably priced, down to earth with local artwork on the walls. They do burgers etc and breakfasts too but we didn't get chance to sample these. Worth calling in if you're in the...

Good choice of cakes in a friendly atmosphere, I had the carrot which was gluten free and lovely and light...I had a taste of the key lime pie aswell and it was lovely!! Good coffee, good cake on a sunny day with stunning views across the loch!! AMAZING!!

You feel at home immediately through the smiling faces that greet you. Good food and excellent service - and unexpected wifi as well - not expected. A wonderful place to get nourishment or just a cup of coffee whilst you travel these wonderful scenic roads.

Great menu for a small cafe. Lovely freshly prepared food and lovey staff that took the time to talk to a very inquisitive 4 year old! Look forward to eating here again next time we visit Lochcarron

Stopped off here on way back from a massive drive around. Great staff and food. Enjoyed our visit here and was one of our best eats during our visit to Scotland.

Stopped here on our way to Fort William. It was a sunny morning so sat outside. Service was excellent, and the waitress said the scones were just out of the oven. Absolutely delicious, along with a great cup of coffee. Three bikers stopped for breakfast. One of them had the challenge. It was HUGE, and that wasn't the biggest. How... More

We had a lovely lunch at the waterside cafe, the waitress was very friendly and chatty, and informed me they had a dairy free soup on most days. The tomato soup was delicious and we intended returning again but ranged quite far so never had the opportunity. Many thanks for the lovely lunch and hope to be back again one... More
