We enjoyed a lovely cuppa with a tasty Panini on a cold day in Glencoe - it warmed the cockles, and the owners were really helpful, offering suggestions for local walks. Nice little café.

popped in here to get out of the cold and very pleasantly surprised ... I had the soup and it was absolutely delicious. The coffee (and I am fussy about my coffee!) was wonderful and the staff were very friendly. Stayed a lot longer than we planned because we were so relaxed.

We visited the café after a long walk through the forest. We had spotted it as we left the car park for the walk and thought we might visit on our return. We had no great expectations, but our judgement was very wrong. When we entered the café was quite busy with walkers and families tucking in enthusiastically. A table... More

We were a group of six with young and old, having lunch before entering the magnificent Glencoe. They served homemade soup, bread and cakes which warmed us up before challenging the freezing world.

We came for a drink and scones and it was really good. It's a very nice place in the lovely village of Glencoe. They are really nice and it's a great place to have a break in the afternoon
