Great Cafe

Haven't been here for a while so took my Mum and Brother for a spot of lunch. Great homemade soup, lovely sandwiches and tasty Mac & Cheese. Service always very good and great value for money. Highly recommended for lunch and very consistent.

It does so by offering excellent food and very polite service, which I have enjoyed almost every time I have visited Inverness in recent years. Highly... More

Good food at a very reasonable price. Customer service is not sophisticated but is kind and agile. It also has good dessert options but I didn't try them.

I had the pulled pork for lunch and it tasted like I expected it to. Really enjoyed it. Hubby had the fish and he said it was really nice and fresh.

Went here for morning coffee. The staff were very polite and friendly and the cafe was very clean. The coffee was very good. Would certainly return if we lived in the area.

My husband and I popped in for lunch yesterday and both had Cullen Skink with a Hogie, WOW, the cullen skink is the best we've both tasted, full of flavour and didn't need to add salt or pepper as it was seasoned to perfection. The hogie was very fresh.....what a delicious lunch. Also, if you fancy a sandwich in Inverness... More

The service is good and the staff are friendly and professional. We only had coffee but the cakes looked good. I didn't know it was a social enterprise training young people until... More
