Don't drive past the sign for Lael Gallery - 12 miles north of Ullapool. If you are a coffee lover you won't find better coffee anywhere. The gingerbread we had was also the best we have ever tasted. My one regret is that it is...More

If you're looking for a good coffee stop this is a must. Best coffee we had during our entire visit to this area and the home bakes are to die for.

Whether you're attracted by "Cafe" or "Gallery" on the signpost, you're in for a double treat. I'm not alone in believing the coffee is probably the best in the Northwest Highlands; and the gallery will tempt you to buy that special gift (or a treat...More

Thank you for making time to review the gallery. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the coffee which is a relatively new addition. We too enjoy the company and good craic which flows from our little coffee corner. Hope to see you again soon.

Still loving our reminiscing about this lovely cafe where we enjoyed 'Two Soups'. It was so good we went back the following day. Don't pass by here whatever else you do.

This gallery and cafe is well signposted on the road but it is a fast section of road and easy to drift past. However, make every attempt to find it as it is a little gem. The gallery has a lot to offer with lots...More

Thank you very much for taking time to post this very complementary review. It is good to see you agree that we are well worth a visit. For everyone else - keep an eye out for the big green signs!

We stopped for a mid-morning coffee and were pleasantly surprised by the range and high quality of items on display in this small gallery. With a large portion of items hand crafted locally this gallery is many levels above the usual tourist shop and prices...More

We loved this place. Somewhat difficult to find, but well worth stopping in, both for tea and for exploring their gallery. We enjoyed good conversation and were given useful suggestions on nearby places to visit while traveling in the area. We hope to return again.

Very pleased that you did find us and enjoyed your visit. For anyone looking for us we are 10 miles south of Ullapool on the main Inverness road - look out for the big green signs.

Worth a stop for a look around and a refreshing cuppa. Small place but really nicely done and with some great art and pieces to look at. We purchased a lovely print and some cards. Owners were friendly and welcoming.
