Great selection of drinks and snacks; very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Easy access from the expansive car park and close proximity to the Gondola, ski hire and ticket office.

Came to the Glen Nevis range to go on the gondolas however they weren't operating on the 1st day so we stayed in this cafe for coffee and cakes. Really nice staff and reasonably priced. Free WiFi as well which the kids appreciated

After a long walk, me and my mother fancied a bite to eat. After ordering from what can only be described as a surly, rude, fairly tall, blonde waitress, I had my drinks chucked at me, had to ask for a glass and then sat down. When my food arrived, the nachos were littered with extremely spicy jalapeños, even though... More

You know you are in Scotland when you see haggis nachos on the menu! As there were no takers for the tram in... More

Having driving for 2 hours, with a further 3 to go we stopped here to take in the views on the gondola. Unfortunately the gondolas weren't in operation due to high winds. Instead of just heading into Fort William we stopped at the Pinemarten Cafe.....how we wished we had just driven a further 5 miles down the road. Having waited... More
