We take the incredible produce available to us on the islands and transform them into street food with both contemporary and traditional elements. Burgers, tacos, curries, hot dogs, salads, lobster, venison, scallops, langoustines, crab, lamb and more.

We offer good vegan options and we will happily adapt dishes for any dietary requirements.

Our Food & Coffee shop based at Lochboisdale peir offers tasty hot breakfast and lunches, ready made meals, sweet treats and island produce. Open Monday-Saturday until 3pm.

Our takeaway van tours to various locations through Uist most Friday and Saturday evenings. Our menu changes regularly to keep things fresh. Check out our social media pages to see our latest menu and for locations for the food van.
