Mollans Cafe


Fresh cakes, hot coffee, hot food to eat in or to take away.  

Find us at Callanish Alpacas.  Click the link for information

Mollans Shed


This is where our journey began.  An honesty shed in our garden.  Now we have moved to work with Callanish Alpacas just 13 miles away.  Thank you for all of our visitors last year and hope to see you in 2020 at the cafe!

Mollans Craft Shed


Why not browse the goodies in the craft shed while you are waiting for your fish and chips to be freshly cooked to order?  

All of the items for sale have been made by local craftspeople and stock often changes every day,  Opening hours are the same as the cafe.

Environmental Impact


Here at Mollans' we take our environment  very much at the forefront of what we do.

There are lots of initiatives we have taken from reducing food miles to using recyclable containers where we can.  Waste is reduced as much as is possible.

Dietary Requirements


Neither Rachel nor I have any allergies but we are committed to produce food that is inclusive to as many people as possible.  If you have special dietary needs then please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them.

We don't Use Palm Oil


We are committed to producing food that does not contain Palm Oil.  

If you click the link below you will see why we have taken this stance and how difficult it has been.

Some of the delights brought to you by Julie and Rachel

Beautiful Cakes


From luscious Lemon drizzle cakes to rich chocolate fudge cakes.   Seasonal Gorse cakes and red cover cakes with flowers picked within 2 miles from the kitchen. 

Crunchy Biscuits


Almost all biscuits you can buy in the supermarkets here on the island seem to contain the dreaded palm oil.  NONE of ours do and they are beautifully crunchy and tasty.



Fresh bread which can be ordered any time.  Bread and rolls soft, crisp and fresh or straight from the freezer in into the microwave if you are in a rush.

Pies, pasties & Sausage Rolls


Our pies are so fully of goodness they should be banned *smile*,  Again, no palm oil and the range includes Forfar Bridies, Scottish Steak and Ale, Chicken and Mushroom, Hogget and even a superb vegan spicy pasty.

Jams, Pickles & Preserves


We make all sorts of preserves when the season allows us to.

Pickled onions, Pickled Eggs, Piccalilli, Jams and speciality marmalades are all to be found here

Hand knits


We make many things on an evening when the oven is off and the log fire is burning.  New for Winter 2019 are these amazing reflective hats which are ideal for being seen on dark nights. 

About Us

Welcome to Our Kitchen!


We love to bring you fresh produce, lovingly prepared and baked with care.

Sometimes from the simplest ideas come the tastiest cakes and bread.

What makes you feel more comforted than a freshly made warm slice of bread with home made rhubarb and ginger jam smothered on top?  Show someone how much they mean to you by bringing them one of our beautiful cakes.  Every one is uniquely different but consistently deeeeelicious.

Food for Thought



We don't like anything artificial and that goes for the baking too!

If you need to add preservatives, artificial colours, artificial sweeteners etc then it is unlikely to be something you will see leave our kitchen.

We also hate waste so often you will see "specials" offered for sale when something is in season - and that could be as simple as summer fruits to autumn flowers.

Waste not ...



We have all heard our Grannies telling us "waste not, want not" and in the shadow of these wise ladies, we continue with this excellent advice.

Why would you let good food go to waste in the first place?  We make our own syrups and crystalised citrus fruit from excess good quality fruits rather than to throw them out.  If you find yourself with a glut of fruit (ie rhubarb, apples etc) then let us know - we love to barter and are more than happy to swap for a lovely cake, preserve or freshly made bread.
