Tayvallich Cafe

Our Story

The Tayvallich Cafe & Takeaway is a small coffee shop serving light lunches, coffees, teas, cakes and other refreshments. Everything is freshly baked and prepared on the premises. The food is served overlooking one of the most picturesque village harbours in Scotland. A large percentage of our ingredients are locally sourced which helps ours chefs create very special indigenous tastes and dishes. We try and provide work experience for village teenagers and see this process as investing back into the community.
