December 9, 2019 Viva Honore

Reviews on Cafe food in Loch Ness, Scotland, United Kingdom. With depths reaching 700 feet and a length of more than 20 miles, Loch Ness provides plenty of hiding places for its legendary monster. Should you tire of searching for Nessie, this scenic section of the Scottish Highlands also delivers charming villages like Drumnadrochit and Fort Augustus, open-air Shakespearean productions, multiple golf courses and medieval Urquhart Castle. Wildlife of the non-mythological variety and ancient Caledonian pine forests can be found in the Glen Affric nature reserve.

Loch Ness Clay Works Pottery and Cafe

A well-known artisan pottery with a walkers cafe by the Great Glen Way and below a popular mountain path. Teas, good coffee, hot chocolate and Marion's amazing home-made cakes. Open most of the year - ring first in foul weather.

During day 2 of or GGW trek we stumbled upon this quirky little gaff! After following in anticipation the “Nearly there” signs excitement grew amongst our team! Set in amongst the trees we were greeted by fantastic staff who shared witty banter. 20 quid of uncle Mikes hard earned cash bought five of us 3 of my favourite things, tea - cake & a cheeky short cut back on to the great glen way through his garden! Highly recommend this for refuelling stop and looking at other comments they do have a little dog who was totally placid, clearly he enjoyed the variety of cake as well!! Defiantly a must stop!How very kind of you to write nice words. I have to say that the dog is not native to the Clay Works, and the main furry denizen is a cat of mighty parts and shameless habits! Come and see us again with our without Uncle Mike, God bless him!

With stunning views of the Castle and Loch Ness, this is the perfect spot to sit and relax after a hard day of Nessie spotting! We have an array of teas & coffees, perfectly accompanied by a treat from our cake table or perhaps a scone which are made dail

Arrived towards the end of lunch service but there was still plenty of healthy options. The kids menu (which seems to be in other tourist spots) worked really well, allowing for the choice of five different items. The panini was lovely and fresh. The layout allowed people threw quickly.

Quila Cridhe Tearoom at Drumbuie Farm

Reviewed By Kaz_Trev

Our rental cottage up the lane recommended this new tearoom and we are so thankful. Away from the tourist traps in the village was a delightful tearoom with beautiful views and highland cattle and their calves outside. Gorgeous selection of toasted sandwiches all freshly made with unusual flavours worked a treat. I squeezed in a slice of the hummingbird cake which was also lovely. Add to this they are dog friendly, it was a real winner for us

Abriachan Eco-Campsite Cafe

Reviewed By Martyn C

We were close to the turning round point of our GGW trek, having started in Drumnadrochit much earlier. The hand made café signs were appealing and luring, so as we neared we thought "why not". Lovely host, with a beard, appeared a la Mr Benn, so polite, took our order and seated us. Presently juice, coffee and cake arrived, as did Squeek, and we settled down, outdoors under a beautiful blue sky to relax and refuel. Of course the site isn't 'clean' and yes its a bit overpriced based on other experiences, but it's likely a one-off and fair play to the owners for being there and entertaining us before we set off again!

Reviewed By LocalTourist94

Been down a fair few times to this establishment and what can I say? It is a wonderful and much needed addition to this side of the loch! I had the Highland Hot Dog and it was outstanding, the ambiance was beautiful and the place was clean. I love the gift shops and like that it is Christmassy but not to over the top. The staff in the shop were lovely and the two women told me about the products I was interested in ( Loch Ness Pottery). They know their stuff but are very polite and you don’t feel pressured into buying anything. Restaurant staff are just as brilliant, especially the young man with the glasses that was making coffee. Will definitely be back. 5 stars.Thank you for taking the time to leave us your wonderful review. We are so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your visit to An Talla. Our Team will be delighted to read your lovely comments, they work hard to ensure they are providing the best of Highland hospitality to all of our visitors. The Christmas countdown is now on and we are very excited about the beautiful products we have in store. Thank you for visiting An Talla by Loch Ness, we hope we can welcome you back again soon.

Stopped for a quick lunch after searching for Nessie on the loch. Food portions were generous and of good quality. Service was also excellent - the cafe was very busy but despite this the staff were very attentive and we felt well looked after.

Located midway between Inverness and Ft Augustus on the southern side of Loch Ness in made a perfect lunch stop with lots of tasty options and friendly staff. The hardest part was choosing from the homemade cakes and slices They even made a great flat white. A walk down to the waterfall across the road made the desert guilt free.

Redburn Cafe

Reviewed By TheButtercups

Such an unwelcoming and rude greeting from staff before entering the building we didn’t even bother to order. A bit of general politeness goes a long way. I’m sorry to hear you feel this way as we pride ourselves on making all our visitors feel welcome and enjoy their time at our cafe and have never received adverse feedback regarding such matters before. It would have been helpful to know specifically what made you feel this way to enable us to learn from your experience.

The Camerons Tea Room and Farm Shop

Reviewed By Garth1973

After walking around Foyers Falls, this is an idea place to stop off for lunch. We drove past it on the way to Foyers, and caught our attention. So on our return we visited and before entering the building we were greeted by some Highland Cows and local deer. The owners have put a lot of attention to detail with the interior work and at the table we sat, there was a framed newspaper cutting about an encounter with Radio DJ Chris Evans. A good venue for lunch.

This quirky cafe had wonderful food with plenty of vegan and vegetarian options. The homemade soup I had was fabulous and the owner was very personable! It is a smaller cafe but we didn’t wait long for a table or food. Thank you all!
