“Appalling service! Don't keep these people in a job!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

Sunday morning in a rainy Fort William, lets go into Cafe 115 as it seems a charming place? Don't be fooled! Warm welcome? Don't bet on it, you will be ignored by staff indifferent to your presence! Sat for ten minutes at the the window seat (yes.that was us!) and then some other customers came on and we waited for the waitress to serve them first and amazingly enough she did! With deft skill of a Zen Monk she managed to block out our very inconvenient presence! While putting my coat On i mentioned that we had arrived first and clearly offended by me destroying her indifferent karma she proclaimed that we had only been there two minutes! (Reality distortion field fully operational, check!) anyone related to this lady wants to get her a gift for a birthday or Xmas may consider a Casio gift voucher or a customer service experience at Le Manoir! The appropriate response madam is: I do apologise, what can I get you sir!
So off we went to the Crofter just down the road and gave them our money in exchange for service and courtesy!
Amazing!

“Great Morning Tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Stopped here on our way to the Isle of Skye, great little cafe for a brunch stop, Staff were friendly and food was delish as was the cuppa, well worth a bite to eat in Cafe 115 situated on the shopping mall.

“Excellent - a must stop off”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

When you visit Fort William and you have the time, visit this beautiful little cafe.

This is becoming a regular place to return - our third visit to Fort William, and the third visit to Cafe 115

While this visit was for afternoon coffee and cake, previously had lunch there, and on all occassions the quality of the food is excellent. This visit we had the Apple Pie, and was one of the best homemade Apple Pies we have had.

Friendly warm service, nice atmosphere - without some of the tweed of other places - and a great little place to take a break.

Don't be put off if it looks full, there is additional seating downstairs, and a little wait is worth it in any case.

“Nice Cullen Skink, Bad Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

The one thing we enjoyed in this cafe was the Cullen Skink (smoked haddock soup). But the service was very bad. Twice when we asked the waitress for something she snapped at us, complaining that she was very busy and then noisily banging things as she cleared another table. Although there seemed to be about five staff on duty it was very hard to get any service. We were told to place our order with a waitress but most people were crowding round the till to place an order, so the whole thing was quite chaotic! We noticed they had a tripadvisor sticker on the front window, which did not seem to be a good sign this time at least.

“Pleasant enough place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Dropped in for a quick cup of tea and a cake. The interior is okay but nothing special. Service was quick enough though it wasn't particularly busy. All in all we were pleased with everything but I didn't feel it warranted a higher score.
