Convenient location near the harbour. Service, food and cleanliness all excellent. We had the baked potato with tuna, scones with salmon and cream cheese, and the BLT sandwich. All came with a side of lightly dressed salad and portion size was perfect. Price was reasonable and we would definitely return.

Stopped here before visiting the distillery right across the street. Compact with 9 tables inside so could get busy at peak times. Food and service was excellent with a wide range of sandwiches and cakes on offer, and reasonably priced. Thoroughly recommended.

First visit was for coffee just before lunch, coffee and scone were superb, while having coffee other customers were starting to have lunch and it looked good. Second visit after a walk around Oban was for lunch. A great meal, a generous bowl of Tomato and Fennel soup accompanied by ham and mustard sandwiches, crisps and salad. For £15.50 for... More

Prices for the dishes are excellent considering quality and portions. It is small insidenough so be prepared to be close to your neighbors. Not a bad thing, just a note and... More

A wonderful little place just across from the Oban Distillery. This place get very crowded for a good reason. The soup was delicious and the Upside down gingerbread pear dessert with fresh creme was decadent.

We were lucky & visited Oban on a warm & sunny day, so we're able to sit outside. The cafe is situated in the town centre but up a quiet side street. We had sandwiches, BLT & tuna with sweetcorn. They were the nicest sandwiches we have had for a long time. We followed them with lemon sponge with fresh... More

A ham sandwich and a coffee £8!! Not even speciality bread and the mug of coffee was nothing out of the ordinary. Wouldn't return.
