Café and Studio
In our bright, airy café by the shore you’ll find hot and cold drinks, home-baked scones and cakes, and home-made vegetarian sandwiches. Where possible, the produce in the cafe is organic, fair trade and/or from local sources. The café is open from Monday to Saturday during the summer months, primarily to serve the tour boats - the Summer Queen and the Isabella – who bring tourists from Ullapool and Achiltibuie to visit the Island for an hour or so, temporarily swelling Tanera’s population. (See Cruises of the Summer Isles for more information.)
In the café you will also find the Summer Isles Post Office , selling our very own, world-famous stamps as well as postcards, greetings cards and a small selection of gifts and souvenirs.
With its wonderful light and position by the shore, some of the residential art courses use part of the café as a studio during the summer months.
