A great place for coffee and cake on our bike ride from Ullapool, no complaints about the food and drink. Covid-19 measures in place with a takeaway only service, which we were fine with. We enjoyed our takeaway outside, but noticed there were no bins,...so I went back inside to ask if I could leave the boxes from the cakes and the coffee cups. I was told I couldn't and that there was a bin at the end of the village. We cycled a couple of miles down the road and only found a bottle bank. Not wanting to dump the rubbish, we had to stuff the packaging into our cycling gear and cycle 25 miles to dispose of it! If we'd have known there were no bins, we wouldn't have bothered. My understanding is that takeaway establishments have to provide bins.More

Stopped at the Piping School Cafe while staying in Ullapool and exploring the stunning scenery of Assynt and Ross and Cromarty. Takeaway only at the moment but a nice choice of food and done really well. We drove a short way to a beautiful site...overlooking the Summer Isles and watched dolphins, while eating our lunch. Gorgeous weather and no midges at the time.More

Open for take out only but still providing a great service and food. We just had the homemade mackerel pate to take out with oat crackers and had some GF crackers too. And cheese and ham sarnies. Impressed as they’re in the middle of nowhere...and some of the larger places we’ve visited couldn’t offer GF bread. Lovely lunch.More

Sadly I missed my summer visits this year due to having to travel to the Far East. However a couple of weeks in October provided an opportunity for several visits to the Piping School Café before it closed for the winter. Excellent as always with...all sorts of odd diets catered for brilliantly and menu items which without exception turn out to be much more generous than might be expected. Don't miss their Angus burgers -- and while we're at it, the chips here are amongst the very best you'll find anywhere in the world.More

Lovely welcoming staff. Very spacious dining room. Food was varied. Home baking was amazing. Such a choice. Definitely worth stopping for lunch or just a cuppa and a cake

After a long but scenic drive we were delighted to find this small but friendly cafe for lunch. The tables have fabulous views over the Summer Isles and the staff are welcoming and friendly. The food is excellent and home cooked, the tea made with...loose leaf tea and the choice of cakes is huge. In other words the perfect place to stop.More

Looks can be deceiving: the Piping School Cafe is plain on the outside and utilitarian on the inside. BUT, it does have delicious homemade food, we had fish pie for lunch, with friendly service and good prices. Seems to be a local gathering place, and...there are nice views from the windows.More
