“Distinctly ordinary”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

There are several better coffee shops in town. This has very basic decor and a fairly limited choice. I had a fruit scone and jam. Scone was warm to hot and quite stodgey, Jam was just plastic cartons of a well known cheap brand. Coffee OK. Really nothing to encourage a return visit.

“A little gem!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

I've recently moved to Inverness and this cafe is the most welcoming place I've found so far.
The owners Benny and Anca are two of the friendliest people you could meet. They make a point of introducing themselves to new customers and always remember your name. They are ably assisted by Susan a really friendly local waitress and Hazel who cooks at the weekend.
The cafe itself is small inside but there are plenty of seats. The walls are decorated with pictures of movie stars reflecting Benny's love of cinema and sometimes there is a black and white classic playing on the tv screen. A liitle jazz can often be heard playing in the background.
The food is simple and delicious as has been said already. The eggy bread and maple syrup has to be tried! Also the coffee is superb.
All in all a great little place which you have to try if you're visiting Inverness.

“Great Coffee and Great Recommendations”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

My husband and I popped in for a quick lunch and ordered the Club Sandwich. The owner suggested an addition of chipotle to the sandwich which was an inspired suggestion...probably the best sandwich I've ever had! Thank you for the suggestion! The coffee is just as good as it is advertised to be, we came back the following day for another cup!
The staff are so friendly and welcoming, they even gave me great ideas for what to do in the city. We will definitely be back for another coffee and a chat.
