This is a lovely little coffee house with a big selection of home bakes that are very reasonably priced. The young lady who served us was exceptionally friendly.

Every time I visit Oban I make for this super little cafe. Not many seats available but excellent hot coffee and superb cakes,patisseries and snacks. All of a very high standard and speedily served. Consistently good and deserves its high accolades

Hot chocolate and fruit slice are great, according to my husband. I asked for Earl Grey tea but got normal. I should have said and also should have asked for skimmed milk, so my experience wasn't the best.

No, I don't think there is. It is one the corner of one of the cobbled streets. Very nice inside and good food.
What time does it open tomorrow, Wednesday 12th August? Looking for an eight o'clock breakfast whilst waiting for train. Thank you.
