Stopped of here with family it's a lovely little place just at the harbour. Some of us just had tea and cakes others had a cooked breakfast. We all enjoyed them. Prices were fine. Staff were nice and friendly. We would definitely go back

We visited here twice during our stay in Nairn. The staff are friendly and attentive and the menu is decent and fairly priced. Both times we had breakfast items which were tasty and well cooked. Very popular little place on the harbour. Worth a visit.

Although I live local, last week was the first time I have visited this café. Its selling point is really the view over Nairn Harbour/Moray Firth. Because it was busy it was crowded (but that must tell you something!). Along with my wife and 2 guests we all had a drink and 3 of us had sandwiches. These were good... More

The cafe seemed full inside and outside when we arrived but the staff fitted us and our dog in at a table by the door.

Popped in this Cafe and had the best freshly made avocada and bacon sandwich on wonderful fresh brown bread I've had in a while. The pot of tea was hot right to the end as well. There was no fuss or bother, plenty of staff on duty and best of all they allowed dogs to come in. I think this... More

Prompt, friendly service and casual atmosphere. The lattes were very good, but the food was a disappointment. While the descriptions and ingredients were interesting (a brie and mushroom omelette for instance), the execution was tasty but not exceptional. As the venue can only seat 20 and can be quite busy, it isn't a place where I'd feel comfortable lingering over... More
