An amazing cafe with great coffee and delicious cakes, each table has an assortment of puzzles and games to keep kids and even the adult amused, but if you're not a thinker get your self a window seat and take in the scenery,

Stopped her for coffee and a cake. Perfect location, with stunning views. The homemade cakes were delicious, and the staff friendly. Only downside was the table was slightly 'sticky'.

This cafe is in a stunning location with views over Torrin, Loch Slapin and the mighty Blaven Mountain in the Black Cuillin. The homemade cakes and freshly prepared coffee are both excellent. Only thing to watch out for is that it's not always open!
