Stopped in on a rainy day for coffee and cake after reading some good reviews on TripAdvisor. To be fair I don't think there is much outstanding in the immediate area, so perhaps how good this place is has been a bit exaggerated. I'd say...More

This place does not look much and we did not expect much but it was a great little cafe which we would heartily recommend. Did not have a full meal but great coffee and cakes and very friendly.

Pleased to find this busy little cafe (always a good sign) when we were exploring the area on our bikes. Enjoyed home made soup served with a cheese and herb scone, delicious. Friendly service too and lots of useful local books etc on sale.

We happened on this little unpretentious cafe by chance, and liked it so much we returned again after our walk. Delightful selection of teas and excellent coffees, very nice cakes. Friendly service. Loved it. Will come again next year.

Visited Glencoe Cafe on a rainy afternoon and was not disappointed. I was lucky to get a table as it was very full. My cappuccino was really tasty and so was the scone I had.
