Great understanding, coeliac accredited. You can eat in, take away or even order on your phone and they bring it out to your car. Gluten free fish and chips and home made chocolate fudge cake.

Open early which is ideal when driving between Glasgow, Loch Lomond and Loch Ness in the day. Food was excellent and great selection of coffees.

If Carlsberg ran a Café this would be it. Super friendly staff, great coffee and equally good food. Free WiFi.

Never drive by if they are open, worth the wait if there is a queue. Always fabulous, always friendly!

As I visit every 3 weeks, the food is brilliant, the staff are so friendly and helpful, if I did not like this place I would not visit every 3 weeks as I pass through Tyndrum, it’s my place for breakfast as I head home...and my evening meal as I head to workMore

We stopped in on our drive up to the highlands and I am so glad we did. The food tasted incredible, there were plenty of gluten free and vegan options. I appreciate the care of the staff and locally sourced ingredients!

What a great place to stop off for a bite to eat and split up your journey. We stopped here for lunch on our way to the West Coast and had fish and chips, breakfast rolls and a lovely couple of coffees. We then stopped...on our way home for breakfast, more breakfast rolls and coffee, vert fresh food and great service. They are very dog friendly, areas to wash the dogs outside if you need to, bowls for water, dog treats and even a couple of cuddles for the dog. The staff were really friendly and very welcoming. Thoroughly recommend this place for a stop off.More

Received a warm welcome from very friendly staff. We could charge our phones while we were there, which was a welcome relief as we had been cut off due to the storm. The fish and chips was just amazing! We will definitely be back. The...service was perfect & the staff were just lovely. Toilets wonderfully clean too. Thank you all for such a good experience.More

I’ve not tried so early but my reading of the menu is breakfast items are only served until 11, but other things are served all day. It is very good and the staff are lovely so i’m sure they’ll help if they can
