Cheap but good dishes - the flapjacks were absolutely ace - with friendly and cheerful staff. Excellent photographs and cards on display and a well stocked outdoor adventure shop on the ground floor.

A nice friendly cafe upstairs from Northwest Outdoors and overlooking the harbour. The Bacon Lettuce and tomato rolls are the BEST. Crispy bacon and fresh salad - yummy. Good value for coffee and snacks, and the photo gallery is worth a look too.

We were allowed to take our dog in so bonus for us. Good choice on menu including cooked breakfasts, toasties etc. Good options for veggies. Plenty of space - great photos in gallery

A lovely moist flapjack and coffee in a dogs welcome environment, above the outdoor shop. We called in here when the place across the road was closed at 11.45 am on a Saturday for a function.

Been here after having lunch, we had great coffee and an amazing Earl Gray. The place is tiny & cozy, the waitresses are very nice and the atmosphere is just very relaxed.

I am writing a second review of this place because it has changed its name since I was last visiting it, and presumably its management. It is now called Zest Cafe, situated above the outdoor clothing store in town. It is a clean, light, airy...More

Visited here for lunch. Have tried on many past visits to Ullapool but always found it queued out. Today it was empty, and silent, which is off-putting for me. We had cooked breakfasts, which were fine, but having specifically asked for no black pudding we...More

The Gallery Cafe is situated above North West Outdoors on West Argyle Street, Ullapool in the Scottish Highlands. We are open from 9am till 4pm, but during the winter months the kitchen may sometimes close at 3pm to allow us to bake our yummy cakes and scones! We will still be serving teas, coffees, cakes and soup (if there's any left) untill 4pm! Why not come in for a breakfast, soup or just some tea and cake. We offer a range of delicious lunches including oven baked potatoes and tasty panini's! Our cakes are all homemade as is our soup.We are child friendly, there are 2 high chairs and changing facilities, we also have some toys to keep the wee ones occupied whilst the grown-ups enjoy their lunch.We also have a good selection of landscape photographs in our gallery section.
