It's a good sign that the new Topiary Coffee Shop in Howdens Garden Centre, is always busy with local people. It's not easy to find as it is on the side road leading into the Holiday Inn Express and Travelodge on the A96 just outside Inverness.
Wheelchairs are available at the door for handicapped people, which is just as well, as you have to navigate your way through the many departments of the garden centre to reach the cafe.
It;s well worth the effort though as they have freshly cooked food available all day at very reasonable prices and their home-made soups and sandwiches are really good. They have main courses of the day offer two for Ten Pounds. They are open all day with late opening from Wednesday through Friday evenings.
They are the nearest restaurant to the two hotels nearby and provide a really good freshly cooked breakfast but, unfortunately, don't open until 9 a.m.
We have had breakfast there and stopped for lunch there last week. The location is great for drivers as it avoids Inverness' one-way road system.
