Perfect little coffee and cake shop next to talisker distillery. Delicious flapjack, cake, hot chocolate and toasted sandwiches with the best view! Really friendly staff and good 1 in 1 out system to stay safe.

Unplanned stop whilst exploring Skye, just after the Fairy Pools and right opposite Talisker. Glad we found this place as the coffee, hot chocolate and brownies were delicious! The kind of chocolate (both the drink and brownies) which is so yummy, dark and flavoursome -...not sweet but not bitter.More

The title says it all really. Very surprised at the poor coffee quality and overall experience. Very expensive for what we received - a tiny cup of strange-tasting bitter coffee. Had to wait ages in line as the service was painfully slow. The cake selection...was poor - only vegan and GF options left. I'd carry on driving to Portree for a caffeine fix! xMore

Excellent quality coffee and some of the best quality cakes I’ve had for some time. Just a shame the ground coffee sells out so quickly it’s so good!

This little coffee place is just so good. We met up with my parents on Skye and made a beeline for Caora Dubh - didn’t disappoint! Coffee and brownies were delicious, so good we came back the next day for more. Carbost is also really...cool to explore, we will defo be back at some point!More

Super coffee and cakes after our trip with Steve on his boat. Highly recommended for coffee lovers. Great views across Loch Harport sat outside above the rocky shore.

There was nothing about this place that wasn't amazing...and to think we nearly walked past it. Went in on a whim and a great decision it was. Great coffee, the nicest green tea I've ever had (oustandingly good), karma cola and three cakes which were...all amazing. Lovely staff and surroundings. Perfect!More

Great little coffee and cake spot when your touring around Skye or you just fancy some expertly made artisan coffee. A wee bit off the beaten track but definitely worth a visit.

Found this excellent coffee shop when after walking to the Fairy Pools in the wind and rain. We very much enjoyed the coffee and hot chocolate and the large slice of flapjack was also excellent.

A hidden gem, perfect pit stop. The best coffee we’ve had in a very long while! Highly recommended, perfect coffee full of flavour, beautifully made, and served by a nice friendly chap. Just wish we had this quality cafe local to home.
