Disappointing Lunch

Goats cheese panini with honey. Sadly half the Panini was tough. Coleslaw was awful. I think it had been made with a lot of olive oil or some type of oil. I could not eat it. Coffee was ok. However the waitress was very pleasant. Sorry it's a thumbs down for me.

I popped in yesterday morning for a wee cup of Tea, didn't eat as not long since my breakfast but studied the menu which looks superb, saw the full plates going to the tables & empty ones coming back, that's a good sign. It's what I'd call a good wee family run cafe, none of these hyped up national coffee... More

Came here on our last morning in Inverness. Wish it had been our first as we would've come here every day. Fantastic breakfast, great value, great atmosphere, friendly staff. If you're in Inverness ever just go there because you won't regret it

I paid this wee friendly place a visit on the last morning of a short holiday to Inverness. I was given a friendly welcome and the service was prompt and efficient. Gentle background music was not too obtrusive. Newspapers were available - another nice touch. I am not a big eater on the mornings, so I stuck to a mug... More

Nipped in for a bacon roll and a coffee at 8.30am. Great service friendly staff. Interesting music choice and staff happy to give details of music playing. Large roll and plenty bacon, good coffee too. Also added toast and marmalade to order which was well presented and good thick slices of bread,

Went in for breakfast around 0830, and enjoyed it hugely. Prompt, friendly service and really good food. There was a bit of a mixup with my order, but it was sorted out quickly and with no hassle.

Well worth a visit for the excellent food and the warm welcome from the owners. Good location and I would highly recommend the bacon sandwich, the bread was thick cut, back bacon perfectly cooked.

I popped in and the ladies were friendly and fast. Breakfast Menu had plenty to choose from, with proper Scottish breakfast, vegetarian options and other healthy choices. I ordered a bagel with Egg & Tomato and a black coffee. Came out fast and the ingredients where fresh and yummy. Was happy there were bagels on the menu as well, they... More
