Me and 2 friends popped in for breakfast the other day. Great quality ingredients and great tea and coffee. Good value for the area and open at this time of year still. Great new staff and a good warm welcome. Will be back.

Popped in for tea and cake after walking in Glencoe. It was difficult to choose from all the delicious homemade cakes on display, eventually went for the pineapple and cherry and it did not disappoint. The staff were all friendly and were really helpful to other customers who wanted advice on where to visit.

Two teas two scones and butter over £8.00. Appreciate it was tea and not tea bags. Still seemed a bit pricey.

Thank you for taking the time to review our cafe. We are sorry that you found our prices high but we are comparable in price with other similar establishments in the Lochaber area. Our tea is good quality loose leaf tea and our scones are generally commented on as being good quality, large and quite filling. We do, however, appreciate... More

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.
