Went for lunch when in Inverness and I was really impressed. Very good service with excellent food (the baked tattie was great!). Coffee (Fairtrade certified) is roasted on site (from green bean) which was very good to see. I bought a bag of El Salvador beans. Bright surroundings, nice atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff. I would happily go there again and... More

Just back from a few days in Inverness. I visited Cafe Artysans for lunch and have to say it has a lovely relaxed feel. The food was fresh and delicious - I had the feta and garlic mushroom salad - and was very reasonably priced. 5 out of 5 for me - keep up the good work!

Our order for lunch was taken by a young guy who came across as a little inept. Three times he came back to check, and to be truthful, we were getting to the eyes thrown up mode. Whilst waiting for our drinks, we read the card on the table which explained: " Artysans is part of the wider Calman service... More

While staying in Inverness I found this café tucked away down a side street, had a couple of cups of coffee and a bacon roll. Great service from the staff, I would frequent this café again on my next visit to Inverness.

Had lunch there last Saturday - perfect after hitting the shops (it's just opposite TK Maxx) or whilst having time to kill waiting for a train or bus. Service was friendly and efficient, food and drinks delicious. The decor is nice and modern which provides a really good atmosphere

Was in Inverness on a day trip and looking for a nice coffee shop. I found it with ease and it was superb. Easy to find towards station parking and directly opposite tkmaxx. Lovely coffee, surroundings well kept and excellent service. Much later, after keeping an eye out for somewhere nice for lunch came back with husband as nowhere else... More

We have visited Artysans on a number of occasions and are impressed each time with the quality of the food and the friendly service. The food is interesting and well presented, all at a very reasonable price. We will be back and thoroughly recommend it to others who are looking for an informal lunch.

Went here for a light lunch and was very impressed by the standard of food, the service and the menu choice. We each had soup served with a cheese scone and they were delicious. If we stayed in Inverness we would be regulars here.

Sometimes you just want a meal. Nothing flashy or elaborate. Just good food, well cooked and unobtrusively served. We stumbled upon Café Artysans and it provided exactly what we wanted. Unpretentious, reasonably priced, well furnished with a couple of cosy corners for those who wanted just coffee or tea or something lighter. A little off the main streets but worth... More

I adored this cafe and its staff members. I came here due to a review I had seen on a hotel site and I wasn't disappointed! The found was so yummy and I left almost rolling out the door I was so full! I had the poached eggs with mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and toast and also got their specialty hot... More
