We always stop here for lunch if we are in Inverness as you can't beat the cullen skink, although this time I had a change and had the soup of the day - haggis broth which was equally good. The coffee and cake deal is good value at £4.00.

What a little gem of a cafe. Popped in whilst out Christmas shopping, and it w as perfect. Bright and clean, super fast polite service, good simple food, just fitted the bill. It was quite busy, plenty of shoppers having their lunch here. Just round the corner from the bus station which must be handy for travellers, altho I think... More

We visited here quite recently with friends that were waiting for a bus, and was pleasantly surprised. We arrived about 11.30 and decided to have coffee and a scone, very nice indeed. By the time we were leaving the place was almost full with people in for lunch and the smell of soup, especially the Cullen Skink, was very nice,... More

We passed this venue whilst in Inverness on a shopping trip. Instantly when you go in, the venue feels inviting and looks clean. Lunch was served quickly and was awesome - fresh handcut chips with skin on and macaroni cheese. The staff were lovely and it was nice to be able to try some of the wonderful products on display...

Having read the negative reviews I finally felt moved to write my own review after having visited the cafe on several occasions. My understanding is that the cafe's main social aim is to provide young people the opportunity to develop skills in a supported workplace setting leading to sustainable employment. This is being done successfully and, of course there will... More

A missed bus connection led me to go looking for a sandwich near the bus station. I ordered a mocha and a bacon and chicken mayonnaise roll to take away, expecting the 'usual' that you get in most places. I was delighted with a proper bakery roll and a delicious filling of chunky chicken and bacon with a tasty mayonnaise.... More

Friendly staff and handily near the bus station. Soup good and all other food being brought out looked impressive. I particularly enjoyed the coffee. Much better than the other cafes near the bus station. Keep up the good work.
