A lovely moist flapjack and coffee in a dogs welcome environment, above the outdoor shop. We called in here when the place across the road was closed at 11.45 am on a Saturday for a function.

Lots of choice, freshly cooked, good quality food in nice surroundings - amazing pictures throughout. We visit every time we're in the area.

Been here after having lunch, we had great coffee and an amazing Earl Gray. The place is tiny & cozy, the waitresses are very nice and the atmosphere is just very relaxed.

We have been here previously many times when it was under previous management, as the food has always been good quality, and the pricing more than reasonable. Now called "Zest Cafe", the food is still of good quality, and pricing. My only small niggle is...More

We were recommended dropping in here for a quick breakfast but the guesthouse owner we were staying with. For £5 you can grab a sausage and bacon sandwich with a freshly made coffee - from the new coffee machine. The cafe has a comfortable seating...More

The Gallery Cafe is situated above North West Outdoors on West Argyle Street, Ullapool in the Scottish Highlands. We are open from 9am till 4pm, but during the winter months the kitchen may sometimes close at 3pm to allow us to bake our yummy cakes and scones! We will still be serving teas, coffees, cakes and soup (if there's any left) untill 4pm! Why not come in for a breakfast, soup or just some tea and cake. We offer a range of delicious lunches including oven baked potatoes and tasty panini's! Our cakes are all homemade as is our soup.We are child friendly, there are 2 high chairs and changing facilities, we also have some toys to keep the wee ones occupied whilst the grown-ups enjoy their lunch.We also have a good selection of landscape photographs in our gallery section.
