Just popped in for a cup of tea and scone as travelling north. It's a cafe with its feeling set back in late 1950,s with old music to match, not to everyone's taste, and needs a little fresh decorating. But that's no deal breaker,,,, The...More

We "discovered" this cafe during a drive from Inverness to Wick. It's a lovely cafe, good food, friendly/helpful staff/owner, sensible prices. We just had cakes (homemade) and coffee, but the other food on offer looks excellent.

Called in for a quick light lunch and opted for the day's soup (chicken with pasta and vegetables) with a fresh wholemeal roll which were excellent and very sustaining. Loved the cheerful decor,the swift and friendly service and the very reasonable prices.

I'd say this was a very good place to stop, sit down for a bit and get the day started. It's fairly cheap, the service is decent and the food is alright. The interior looks a bit dated, but I think that might be part...More
