Fodor's Review

Now a popular café for locals, the Powerhouse building used to contain a small hydroelectric generator that supplied power to the old Queen Mary Hospital and a few streetlights. It opens at 8 am with a great brunch menu to suit all tastes—from a hearty high-country breakfast to huevos rancheros to the Highland Fling (porridge with a "wee lick o'whisky liqueur, blow-torched to caramelized perfection"). There's home baking, and the food has a healthy, fresh feel about it with wonderful salads using local ingredients.
