The food was overpriced for what it was (half bowl of soup, a panini and 1 drink costing over £10!!). Table service was poor, gave me the wrong juice and soup. Staff friendly yet awkward... Such a shame for such a nice part of Loch...More

Our cafe prides itself in its fresh homemade cakes and scones with specialty coffees and teas. We are open all year except January. We sell homemade bloomer bread sandwiches and fresh homemade soups. In the summer months we double the choice of cakes and food ranging from fish and chips all the way to venison. We have our own gift shop selling some unusual gifts. We provide take away coffee or meals to eat by the beach on the banks of Loch Lomond. Our toilets are easily accessible and wheelchair friendly and available to patrons only. We are dog friendly and even have our own resident dog named Toby.
