“CAFE IN TAIN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

If you are visiting Tain make sure you call in for a snack or meal at the Sunflower Cafe. They serve fish & chips and soup to die for. The rolls were so nice I now make a trip to Grant's Bakery in Tain to buy my own supply. Very reasonably priced as well (both rolls and Cafe). Always warm & friendly.

“Sunny cafe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Nice cafe, owners also run another good establishment nearby also.
Food is excellent in our experience, soup particularly nice & everything seems homemade, a real bonus in this day and age.
Decor (mostly sunflowers!) is becoming rather shabby, to be expected in such a busy wee place, it might put new customers off a little which would be a shame as this is a truly excellent cafe with lovely staff & great food.
