Just found this new gem hidden away in the old fisher station at Whaligoe steps.

Not tried the food yet but looked at the menu and looks very exciting. Those who were having the cakes & snacks were very pleased. Lovely range of coffees & teas, different blends & types. Home mad cakes & breads. Large windows overlooking the steps and sea with a wood burner to keep us warm on a winters day.

During week, except monday open until 10.30pm

We will definitely be back,this time to eat.

We were there for a family meal in the evening and it was excellent. The food was great and the view was spectacular. Nothing was too much of a problem for them.

Highly, highly recommend a visit to this cafe.

Just had a look at their website as you suggest, seemed like a good idea to offer a 'bring your own' service for beer or winr, and was thinking of bringing 2 friends, until I noticed that a cover charge of 150 PER HEAD applies so for 4 of us would be 600 plus food - so I think NOT!

I am not sure if you are being serious but look again it is 1.50 per head.

Also I am surprised that as this topic is moderated, the moderator allowed such a stupid posting. If anyone thought it was true then the business could lose trade by a wrong posting. I thought that one reason for moderating this group was to stop silly posting that could damage trade and make .Org liable to damages.

Hi,

The Happy Guy is correct, the website does state 150.

Threads aren't moderated for the reasons that you suggest, they are moderated to prevent slagging matches.

If I had a business I would be thanking Happy Guy for pointing out the mistake on the website.

Cheers
Colin

"A corkage charge of 150 per head will apply."
This is a direct paste from their first page. As you can see there is a "." It maybe that the font is confusing you. He was not pointing it out as a mistake he was stating it was a fact. I don't want to get into an argument and so i will not post again about this

I copied and pasted said "150" into google and got no "dot"...which implies 150. not 1.50. I understand what you mean about the font gerry4 but I don't believe there is actually a "." there. But hey...

I can see that there isn't a '.'

It isn't in the HTML or a copy and paste in a non-script font.

I'm not arguing just stating a technical fact.

er..anyway, I met therealducati yesterday on her way back from the Western Isles at Walligoe. We had a late lunch in the cafe and I finished off with the dense chocolate cake. The density and weight of a Caithness flag :lol:

I was so hyped up we went down then back up the steps in about 10 minutes.

Highly recommend the cafe and highly recommend the cake.

Thanks for pointing out the mistake. Karen and I will sort it out when we get a moment.
Since setting up the web page we have changed our policy.
There is no corkage charge for bringing your own wine beer etc.

My diet is so out of the window today......the pasta carbonara was excellent. We have now decided that a trip down and up Whalligoe steps is a must before sitting down to eat.

My partner and I were there last weekend. It was lovely. The dense chocolate cake is to die for. Was tempted to move in just for that.
