“A breath of fresh air.”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Welcoming atmosphere, the long table invites to socialise and the little ones give you the chance of a more intimate conversation or a work break with the free wi-fi.
Fresh ingredients are combined in unusual but successful vegetarian dishes, the delightful home made cakes are an irresistible temptation. Books and maps to read and/or buy, the friendliest atmosphere in Inverness and a great bicycle workshop with courses and social events are the highlights of this lovely place.

“I love this little cafe”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

Came here twice during my short stay in inverness. Te atmosphere is great, they have a workshop in the back for bikes an the staff is very charming and friendly. For me it is the top place to have a coffee in inverness. They got some books too if you feel bored, mostly about cycling which is great. I had a soup coffee and cake. The offer on food and pastries is changing all the time and there is a huge selection of teas.

“Superb Coffee”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Superb coffee, the best in Inverness for sure, thank you Gavin. The cakes look good and we like the big table where you can spread one of the newspapers they supply.

“Warm, creative and unique”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Fantastic creative veggie food made with 'real' ingredients and always tasting super fresh! lots of gluten free and dairy free options and the staff are knowledgable about what all the food options contain incase you have more complicated dietary needs (like me!). Warm staff and a really inspiring mission to help create a sustainable scotland. Yummy, quirky, friendly....always a joy!
