We visited here for a short time on route to glasgow. We just stopped for a quick coffee and a snack. The restaurant surroundings are lovely, quirky with the chance to buy some novel gifts which appeared local and home made. The food (scone and coffee cake) was evidently home made and fresh. It was just a bit bland to... More

Stopped here for a coffee while out on a day trip. We had our dog and worried about being able to find somewhere that would allow him in, but the staff were so welcoming! We had a great cup of coffee and some cake. The staff loved having Sammy (dog) there and he got alot of love from everyone. Amazing... More

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 Lomond.

We didn't eat in the cafe as we more interested in the tourist information area. Film on view giving interesting tourist facts.

We entered Purdie's whereupon I stumbled on something that I did not recognise and I thought it was one of the toys from the shop.Upon picking it up I said to the owner I" think this has... More

I was not aware the family run cafe here would house a dog so close to the food, with its chewy toys strewn across the floor upon entry, to which my guest almost twisted an ankle due to standing on one these. A surprise and just not what I expected in a catering establishment. The dog was in a cage... More

The location is great and staff are helpful, not so sure about the gluten free options. Proprietor likes dogs.

We were looking for somewhere for a short break and coffee on our way south from Fort William and came across Purdie's at about the right time of the morning more or less by chance. It proved to be ideal. There was plenty of parking and It was quieter than the 'facilities' at the other end of the car park.... 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.
