Great coffee, lovely toasted ciabattas, amazing cakes! Lovely atmosphere, dog friendly inside and outside, pleasant staff, ideal for multiple visits when walking around the island. 10/10 and highly recommended!

Popped in for lunch when visiting the island. A great line in ciabatta sandwiches and some delicious cake with great coffee. Friendly team. Limited seating inside but we were treated to a clear if chilly day so it made no odds. Ample seating outside in the gardens. Recommended for a stop should you find yourself in the area.

Fabulous little place to grab a coffee and cake after a walk to the castle. The cakes and scones are delicious. There is a big outdoor area for kids and dogs.

Got to the cafe as it was opening and had great coffee with freshly baked scones. What's not to like?! It was very busy later on so get there early to avoid the queues.

We have used this cafe before. We were originally impressed (back in the days when they had crockery and decent cake) but subsequently disappointed. We thought we'd give them one last chance. The paper cups are a big turn off. They promote this as being environmentally friendly, but I've now seen in the manager's response to another review that they... More

Love coming here whenever we visit Holy Island. Really fantastic coffee and brilliant service. Pilgrims is always very busy and the guys behind the counter seem to never stop, and are always very smiley. Coffee doesn't just smell great but home roasted on the premises it tastes fantastic. The cakes are amazing, try the St Cuthbert's slice, and the Hot... More

Poor service even worse value what is the point of warming the scone pudding (which was tasteless) when you then have to wait for 30 minutes to get your drinks? Pretentious nonsense. Only redeeming feature the lovely garden where you could take dogs.

Went here on our visit to Lindisfarne. Lovely choice of fresh baking. Chose a scone still warm. Very tasty! Coffee is apparently very good and roasted in the yurt in the garden!

We visited this cafe after seeing good reviews on Trip Advisor and we were delighted to see several vegan options both savoury, sweet and drinks- gluten free too. The people were very friendly and we not only had coffee and cake but we're inspired to buy our lunch as a takeaway for our journey back to Derbyshire. Lovely to see... More
