This was a great little spot for lunch. The food was great and the staff in the visitors center were very helpful. They gave us a map of the local area and were able to help us find some great places to see.

Stopped for lunch in the sun here, and was pleasantly surprised by the great quality - the smoked salmon was especially tasty. Would definitely eat here again.

Good coffee stop convenient to Museum and main sites. Attractive cafe but service incredibly pedestrian. And why don't they tell you in advance that the downstairs seats have no WiFi?!

The menu was varied and everything seemed nice. We sat outside with the dogs and enjoyed their freshly made cakes. All the staff were very friendly and helpful when it came to advice about places of interest. Definitely worth a visit!

We had soup - which was delicious and came with home made bread. I was really impressed by the variety of exciting veggie options on the menu, it's great to have so much choice. I opted for the soup as I needed to warm up, but would have loved to sample some of the other dishes which looked fresh and... More

We found this place as we were driving through the highlands. We stopped to visit the cemetery and we saw the cafe. We ordered soup and venison burgers. Both were fresh and tasted great. The cafe has nice staff and great ambiance.

Expect to get ripped off? Not at all. Really nice home cooked food with a twist of individuality. Nice coffee pure and simple non of your mocalafitoffalotto. And really pleasant staff. I was happy to enjoy what was presented and delighted at the VFM.
