Only complaint was the cakes also looked amazing but we couldn't fit anything in after the massive lunch! Would definitely recommend and return- outside as well as inside seating. Quite a few gluten free cake options -... More

Best place on Arran for lunch. Great range of lunches - soup, salads, croissants, paninis and my personal favourite the Mexican chicken wrap. Very hard to resist the great range of delicious home baking to round off the experience. Kids love the food, milkshakes, hot chocolate and ice cream and always want to go on our visits to Arran. Great... More

We stopped here for mid afternoon coffee and snacks after walking to Glenashdale Falls. The service and food were great! There is a fine selection of home made cakes. The cafe is popular and there are fantastic views out to Whiting Bay. Outdoor seating is also available.
