The café provides a welcome pit stop for tourists and is also popular with local people. The Gaelic language is commonly spoken between customers and staff and the portraits on the wall have all been donated by local families. You can enjoy a freshly prepared light lunch of soup, sandwich, panini or wrap and finish it off with a speciality tea or coffee with home made baking.  Local produce is used wherever possible. 

We accept card and cash.
