Highlands & Islands
Today was our last day of Assessments in Skye and in the busy main town of Portree. Just as we had given up hope of finding excellent baking in Portree along came this wee gem in the name of "Cafe Arriba" This is a fantastic wee modern ,trendy, young and extremely busy Cafe . The view from one half of the Cafe overlooks Portree Harbour and from the other half of the Cafe your overlook the bustling main town of Portree- perfect location. The Cafe had such a great lunch menu that we stayed for lunch before the Cake intervention. Linda and her partner in crime Jenny make a formiddable team running this Cafe with all their staff. The cake display was large and varied with everything from Cheesecake to all the usual cookies and cakes ,but for me the star of the show was a fresh plum scone . I have not had plum in a scone before and it was as light ,tasty and as perfect a texture which needed no addition of jam. If in Portree this Cafe should not be missed not just for the excellent baking but for the Lunch menu and fanatastic ambience. We will be back .
