Went in for coffee, late afternoon and the service was very slow. It took 10 minutes to appear, and was no more than average quality. There was a loose carpet between the tables which I tripped over as I was leaving. Will be looking for...More

This is a delicatessen and café combined. The first of these has a lovely selection but it is really off-putting to see food, including iced carrot cake and lemon drizzle cake, sitting in the heat of the sun, with the icing melted or far too...More

We went in to grab some fresh bread, but we also managed to find some lovely jam and a meat pie. Fantastic little place, great food and wonderful service.

We sought refuge here on one of the wettest days I have ever experienced. We had the chicken homemade soup which was amazing and quickly warmed us up. Followed by cheese scones which were freshly made and well presented. The staff were polite and the...More

First visit to Oban since kids refused to get wet again on holidays near Loch Awe or en route to the islands. It was food desert - at least we could not find anywhere selling lovely food. So it is pleasing to report that the...More

We were drawn into the Kitchen Garden because of the old fashioned feel to the shop front. Once inside we found an extensive cheese and delicatessen plus wine shop and specialised food products. We went upstairs to the coffee house and ordered scone jam and...More

The Kitchen Garden is a busy delicatessen and coffee shop. Our licensed coffee shop is located on a mezzanine floor which overlooks the delicatessen below. We offer freshly prepared, local, simple meals and can be busy during peak times. With regret we do not have lift access to the coffee shop but wheelchairs and buggies can be left in the deli, where the staff will keep an eye. Our deli is well stocked with several thousand lines from Scotland and beyond, with an emphasis on Scottish cheeses and whiskies.
