The Prague Shack at River Café

From 1st April, Timespan’s River Cafe will be run by The Prague Shack.

We’re in a stunning spot overlooking our community herb garden and the River Helmsdale. Our menu is all home-baked including the range of breads which can be bought from our small-scale bakery. We use local seasonal produce wherever possible to ensure freshness and to minimise the carbon footprint of our food miles. Our eggs come from Ula’s chickens a few miles up the Strath, smoked fish from the Helmsdale Smokehouse, coffee from Inverness Coffee Roasting Co, flour from Golspie Mill, and herbs from our own garden. Our menu changes regularly to follow what’s in season.

We have a local produce stall in the River Cafe, which stocks locally sourced and made chutneys, jams and relishes, fresh local eggs when the chickens decide to lay them and veg and herbs from our constituent’s polytunnels and crofts.

Central to our ethos is to support local economic development by supporting local producers and supplying food which isn’t readily available locally.

The Prague Shack will be open 1000 – 1700 Monday – Sunday and Friday and Saturday evenings 1800 – 2100. The evening set menu will change monthly so you have the opportunity to try a wide range of contemporary Czech-Scottish fusion cuisine.
