Finally got here at a time when it wasn't too busy to get a table. Had great lunchtime snacks on two occasions, with good service and excellent quality food. On the first visit, they added cheese to my wife's veggie burger by accident. My wife pointed out the mistake and rather than deduct the cost of the cheese they removed... More

We were passing through and stopped for lunch. Staff were friendly and efficient. Place modern and there's a super view of the loch and mountains. We both had the lunch special which was excellent (although no Parmesan available for spag bol tut tut). Recommend the regular double shot cappuccino as well. Well done Poppies!!
