Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

The best coffee in Gairloch! A hidden gem down the alley, well worth a visit for a coffee and cake. Friendly service, loads of dairy free milk options. Recommended to us by the local campsite manager, and we can see why!

We visited The Alley in June and again in August. Delicious ice creams, yummy waffles and so much more. The owners are so friendly and helpful. We will be back, a firm favourite with the kids.

The Alley is a must when visiting Gairloch. The owner is very welcoming and happy. The coffee is proper, super Flat Whites. There is an extensive ice cream selection, a hit with my children. There is indoor seating, and outdoor seating in a lovely private courtyard. We liked it here so much we have visited three times during our holiday!

Up a small alley way beside the fish and chip shop, just off the square at Strath in Gairloch lies a charming little garden cafe.

An amazing array of waffles, pancakes and specialty Italian ice creams are served to sit in or takeaway along side a great range of coffees, teas, soft drinks, cakes and sweet treats. They even have a special ice cream suitable for dogs! The lovely staff are friendly and helpful and bring your order to your table in the cute little garden area or in the large conservatory.

We enjoyed a fabulous Green tea, raspberry and jasmine cake with a chai latte and coffees. The range of ice creams was stunning (choose from the likes of Scottish Tablet, Jura (whisky), Biscoff, White Chocolate chip, Kinder Bueno, Elton Mess and Jamie Dodger) and then top with chunky sprinkle toppings or enjoy in a waffle cone.

A place to really indulge your sweet tooth and kick back in peace and quiet for a while (there’s a romantic gazebo with sofas in the garden too). Well worth a visit.
