A very nice supplement to our Iona Abbey visit. We loved seeing the crosses and reading about the history...just wish we had more time.

We visited at 1.15, so expected it it be busy. We didn't expect to order then wait half an hour for 2 toasties. They were fine, but no more than that. Staff were pleasant and apologetic for the wait.

Great place to discover the history of the island, the Abbey and it's religious heritage. The centre is a treasure chest for Ionian history
