This was our second visit here and we came back mostly because the Tiffin was so amazing last time!

We didn't just have cake though... On the last visit I remember being really impressed with their soup and cheese scone deal - the cheese scones are fantastic, but this time we both opted for panini. The fillings were great but the bread really should've been under the grill for longer - it wasn't quite there yet - but that's our only small quibble.

The staff are really friendly and the service is very good too. The cafe can get busy at peak times so sometimes you might have to wait for a table but it's worth it.

We also really enjoyed watching lots of little birds using the feeders in the garden by the window and I now wish I had bought one of the window feeders to take home as they were selling them too! Will just need to visit again to pick one up next time ;)

And of course the Tiffin! We couldn't leave without having a slice and it was perfect yet again. Definitely worth stopping in at this cosy little cafe if you're in the area or passing through Glencoe!

Thank you very much for your detailed review of our cafe. We are delighted that you enjoyed the tiffin and we take on board your comments on the panini. The bird feeders are great for attracting the birds up to the window for the customers to see close up. We look forward to seeing you again.

A very nice place. I had a soup with a scone. It never occurred to me the scone would be sweet. It was wierd to eat it the the sour soup.
The cafe was really busy when we arrived, it was hard to get a table.

If you have to try haggis, this is the place. They make a panini that is well suited for the unappealing dish, masking its blandness with cheese and bread. A well-crafted menu, with lots of birds congregating around it, makes this a delightful stop before hiking the nearby trails. Parking is a problem in this village.
