Six places to enjoy coffee & cake on Argyll’s Secret Coast

Six places to enjoy coffee & cake on Argyll’s Secret Coast
On Argyll’s Secret Coast you can always get a great cappuccino and some excellent home baking – an essential on any holiday! As you explore the area, you’ll find a welcoming cup of tea in the most magical of places. Here are six places to enjoy coffee and cake on Argyll’s Secret Coast this summer.

The Tearoom
Situated right at the heart of Tighnabruaich next to Tighnabruaich Gallery, The Tearoom is the perfect place to enjoy a cuppa. Owner Sinead bakes the most brilliant cakes, from towering chocolate sponges to marvellous millionaire shortbread. Or how about an Eton Mess cupcake? Enjoy a latte, cappuccino or tea as you watch the world go by in this cosy wee place.

Just along the road is Botanica. This restaurant/wine bar does a mean coffee and offers a small, but exquisite, selection of cakes. On a sunny day, you can sit outside and soak up the rays. Why not treat yourself to an Isle of Arran Ice Cream from the ice cream trike parked up outside? You can also pick up cakes and home-made bread at the Botanica Deli.

Kilbride Farm Café
Nothing beats a stroll to Ostel Bay on the Ardlamont Peninsula and then back to Kilbride Farm Café for scrumptious home baking and a refreshing cup of tea. Take your pick from brownies, scones, tea cake and more. There’s also ice cream, savoury snacks and sizzling burgers. This pop-up café is set up by Annette and Moris in the grounds of Kilbride Farm every summer and is open Thursday to Sunday and bank holidays from 11am - 5pm (weather depending!).

The Oystercatcher
This wonderful pub/restaurant at Otter Ferry sits right on the beach looking out over Loch Fyne. It’s an awesome place to enjoy lunch, dinner or sunset drinks, and does hot drinks and cakes too. It’s open from 10.30am. Why not head over for morning coffee followed by an amble along Otter Bay?

You can get coffees, teas and home made cakes at Portavadie throughout the day in The Marina Bar and Restaurant, The Lodge Kitchen and Bar and The Leisure Café. Enjoy afternoon tea on the terrace watching the boats sail by or coffee and a cookie after a swim.

The Dairy at Carry Farm
If you’re walking or cycling around the Ardlamont peninsula, then the Dairy at Carry Farm provides an excellent pit stop! Help yourself to fairtrade goodies or make a tea/coffee and sit outside in the sun and enjoy the view. Check out the textiles made by Fiona from her Hebridean sheep and her sister’s beautiful ceramics. You might also want to stroll to the beach and meet Barney the donkey.

All the hotels serve tea, coffee and cakes, including the Kames Hotel, Royal An Lochan, Wellpark and Colintaive Hotel.
