We were staying down the road at Pier House and we really appreciated having some decent coffee close by. The shop has a few bits and pieces to make it easy enough to get the essentials without having to drive back to Broadford. Loved the locally made souvenirs.

Great small shop for coffee tea and snacks. Also have a small gift item section and everyday essentials. Homemade cakes really good.

Just what we were looking for - a good local shop with more than adequate selection of simple lunch options

Shame because it looked like quite a nice wee shop but I found the lady serving to be very rude. My wife and I had sat outside, I took the cups and plates back inside and was ignored as she continued her conversation with someone she obviously knew. No thank you or any comment whatsoever.

A lovely little shop/cafe in the quiet village of elgol. We spent a short time here as we just drove until we could drive no more and there was elgol.

We went to Elgol to see the wonderful view, but there was no view that day due to the cloud and rain. However, we found the coffee shop. What an ingenious use of a very small space! As there were only two small tables, we shared the table with two American visitors and had a really interesting conversation over a... More

Lots of benches outside with great views of the hills perfect for walkers, dog owners etc.. Soups of the day, sandwiches and lots of local goodies such as... More

Stopped off for coffee before our boat trip, the best ginger cake ever. Just above the jetty and plenty of free parking too

I stopped here and had a slice of Ginger Cake after my boat ride to Loch Coruisk. Great little shop/cafe, and the cake was excellent!
