We visited on a very cold Bank Holiday in January. The cafe was quirky , welcoming ( even for our dog) and cosy. They were running short of food but the cake was lovely and the tea and coffee very good. The prices were very good and probably the reason for my only concern which is the paper cups and... More

Appalling slow service, would have been quicker to drive back over to the mainland, buy some coffee, and drive back with it.

After a cold winters walk around the island what better way to end the day then enjoying a coffee and cake in front of the fire sat in a cosy leather armchair. The coffee was of a very good standard and there was a delicious display of homemade goodies. The staff are very friendly and we noticed that the cafe... More

I love this place - a visit to Holy Island isn't complete without a visit to Pilgrims. For ages their scone puddings have been a favourite of mine - something I've raved about. But I've recently developed a dairy intolerance so I wasn't quite looking forward to a trip there like I normally would. Not a problem! Their dairy-free brownies... More

On a bright but cold day a cuppa was just the thing. Earl Grey and a wee cake, lovely. Nice seat by the fire was very cosy

A good place for a chat, a coffee, a beer, a piece of cake and so much more. Just really chill atmosphere and there is plenty of space up the stairs. Everything that is offered here can be explained by the owner. It was the only cafe open in the cold months of the year actually!

Second visit to the Island this year and even though there was problems with the electricity and generators had to be used, the spirit of the Island and the cheerful Islanders still made the visit worthwhile. Called into Pilgrims for hot choc and bacon butties on a cold autumn morning, sat in the relaxing garden watching the sparrows play, feeding... More

Lovely coffee, warm welcome from the cold, something modern on an island full of history but still in keeping with surroundings. Dog friendly which is nice, seating areas are in different rooms across different floors and an eclectic mix of art work and seating. Loved it!

Called in here as nothing else (but pubs) seemed to be open on our day long trip to Holy Island. Very surprised that this quaint looking building was such a cool coffee shop inside! We ordered coffee and two panini - tuna melt and feta & ajvar. I had never even heard of ajvar before but it was the MOST... More
