*****WE ARE STILL CLOSED UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO THE COVID SITUATION... HOWEVER, THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, & WITH THAT, WE WILL LOOK TO OPEN ON A TAKEAWAY BASIS ONLY FROM THE 30TH APRIL. - PLEASE FOLLOW FACEBOOK FOR FURTHER INFORMATION*****
Hello, and thank you for popping by to look at our website.
We are your humble hosts, Mark & Alison Carter. We have been on the Isle of Skye now for a number of years, and started our catering career running a food takeaway business in the village of Broadford.
This was very successful, and we gained a fabulous reputation for serving good quality, locally sourced food. Our ethos has always been to use as much locally sourced product as possible, and this will now continue in our new venture here at Amy's Place.
So, who and what is Amy's Place......Well, we are a small tea room based in Torrin, which is just 6 miles from Broadford, on the Elgol Road. It is named Amy's Place in memory of our daughter who passed away in December 2018, aged just 23. Amy passed through complications of Lupus. This is why the butterfly theme, and the colour purple is evident, as this is the colour and emblem of Lupus.
We serve home made baking including a great selection of tasty treats, all made by Alison's fair hands, and the gluten free,and vegan options are home made by Laura Rankin of "Creatures of Habit Cakery", so make sure you check out her page too. We also have a couple of soup options available, which again is home made.
Our tea range is quite vast, and comes from a range of suppliers which will continue to grow.
You will probably have the best of views from any cafe anywhere (#brewwithaview) and we encourage you to come in, sit back, relax, and enjoy (when we are allowed inside again) The people of Skye would ask that you take more time when visiting and stay longer, see more.
So whilst you are enjoying a nice beverage why not spend a little time and look at the local crafts and gifts which we have on sale. They make great presents for you to take away and we also have a deli section as well, which has lots of options for you to peruse.
Thank you very much for reading, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Mark & Alison
