Decent (though strong) coffee, with a fine piece of toast and jam. Nice place for a quick battery recharge before hitting the hills. Nice to have somewhere that's relaxing to hang out in Fort William, that's not the usual choice of bland high street brands....More

My partner and I stopped on here on our way through Fort William to get lunch. We took some wraps, salads and desserts to go. The tofu and peanut wrap was awesome! Well everything was! The cafe had a great atmosphere and was quite busy....More

Just what the doctor ordered. What a gem of a cafe in a drab (Sorry) place. The service, coffee and overall feel of this cafe is excellent. Highly recommend a visit.
