Often pop in on my travels. Staff always friendly and helpful. Have tried a variety of food on the menu. Particularly enjoy the soups, venison burgers and the Stornaway black pudding on a roll. Keep up the good work will be back soon.

I had family over for the weekend and wanted somewhere to take them out for breakfast on Sunday to save me cooking. Options for breakfast are limited in the area at this time of year, so finding the place and reviews on Trip Advisor decided...More

Excellent breakfast with proper local produce - delicious. Heather and Cherry were great as I arrived as soon as they were open (10am), cold and glad I'd managed to find somewhere in Dunoon to have breakfast. Made sure we were warm and had what we...More

Probably the most disorganised service I've ever experienced. Have been a number of times (it's a breakfast stop-off point on one of our regular cycle routes) and each time the service has been poorer than the last time. On this most recent visit, we waited...More

This is a regular on our visits to the area. Great breakfasts and lunches. We particularly like the home made soups and sandwiches. the home made coleslaw is the best ! Pity the hours of opening are so limited.

Delicious soup, freshly baked scones and tasty coffee , Dunoon has other attractions too ! The really best thing about Cowal, which is a secret little part of Argyll, is the combination of hills, sea lochs and the ever-changing weather. Stunning scenery, wildlife in abundance, undiscovered, hassle free and plenty of space to roam both on land and sea. Leave your mobile at home when you visit Dunoon !There are many excellent forest walks, great sailing, quad biking, cycling, fishing and even the simple things like skimming stones on the ice age shores make Dunoon and Cowal a great place to be. Pop along to Tighnabruaich for a boat trip on a proper fishing boat through the wonderful Kyles of Bute or take a longer trip on a paddle steamer around the Firth of Clyde. After so much scenery a trip to the Holy Loch Coffee Shop is essential!!.Cyclists on epic rides from Lands End to John O Groats often stop off at the Holy Loch Coffee Shop for food and sailing crews can usually be heard across the tables of the coffee shop debating that last race around the Clyde or voyage down the Firth.Nearby Quadmania and The Hunters Quay Holiday Village offer activities for the family and Dunoon boasts an informative wee museum perched on the hill behind the pier. Ardkinglas Gardens and Benmore Gardens have some of the biggest trees in Britain and are well worth a look.After you’ve stretched your legs come and have a sit down at the Holy Loch Coffee Shop.
