*****WE ARE NOW CLOSED FOR 2020*****
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 One of which (when available) is the award winning Cullen Skink, provided by the fabulous Buth Bheag's Fishermans Kitchen & Takeaway based in Kyle of Lochalsh right on the harbour front. The other soup is made by Mark, and this changes every couple of days.
Our tea range is supplied to us by Teapigs, but if you are in a rush and need to get something to go, then we are happy to package your cake up for you in our compostable and bio degradable cups, lids, and boxes.
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. 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
