Nothing beats a caramel latte on our way home from a week in gairloch. Carries a great selection of dairy free confection for my dairy allergy sufferer daughter.

This is a really nice coffee shop with the added benefit of the book shop attached. Coffee was excellent and cake was lovely

We called here only because there were no cafes open in Poolewe on that Sunday. It was very quiet , we were pleased that it was open. They were only serving drinks and bakery items. They must believe that offering a soup is not viable...More

We always try to come here when up in this part of Scotland. Always had a friendly welcome, scones are fantastic as is there other food (my wife says) as I never get past the scones.

We were giving up hope of anywhere in Gairloch being open for coffee & cake (not lunch which we could have got elsewhere), and were somewhat delighted to find this interesting looking cafe open. Ok welcome, fab looking cakes etc, not really clear if order...More

This is a terribly overpriced place where for a small frothed milk its 1.95! You dont get a hello or smile, you made to feel totally unwelcome. I'm only glad that the owner's manner was so awful I only paid for a few drinks and...More

Caveat, our visit was with a small party off season, but felt like we were a hinderance, we were certainly not made welcome. Very poor service. Very elcectic, needs a makeover... tardy and tired. On a positive note, food was tastey and good value.

This cafe is recommended by Lonely Planet and could be fantastic. The view is good, The food looked good and some tasted good. I ma prompted ot review becase the service was very bad. The women in charge who I believe is the owner was one fo the grumpier people we met on a 5month tour of Europe. She was loudly critical of and to the young man working there, she was unwelcoming and ignored much of what we said to her. The coffee was ok but made with reluctance and an offhand attitude. We felt as if we were intruding in her space and a real nuisance -- at 11 am !!. We had driven out of the way to get to a place which we felt would be special place for a coffee. It was but in all the wrong ways. We are New Zealanders who do not normally complain but this place was worth complaining about.
