Our café offers delicious food and friendly service. From freshly prepared soups and snacks to a range of irresistible home-baking, we cater for all tastes. Along with many ingredients grown on the premises in our polycrub (when available), we are also proud to promote local businesses and sustainability by using use bread from the Blackhouse Bakery (Stornoway), eggs from Air an Lot (North Dell), Ness Black Pudding from Cross Stores. Free WiFi is available throughout the building and if you're on the Hebridean Cycle Route, we'll happily refill your water bottle free of charge.
