After walking around Elgin we came across the Bijou cafe, the menu looked good and the overall impression was favourable, lunch was served until 4pm and it was a little after 2.45am so we thought fine, this would do us. So we sat at the...More

Beautiful food - decor, ambiance and surroundings not quite as good as at the sister cafe Bijou By the Sea but great service and good quality food.

On a trip to visit a relative but having been several times before on trips north, any excuse would suffice. Good, indeed excellent range of gifts, great coffee & hot chocolate, smashing menu. Never even remotely disappointed.

Im sorry you felt your breakfast was not satisfactory. As it is called in our menu a 'Bijou' breakfast, it is a small sized meal. We are a coffee shop, not a restaurant and do not have the kitchen facilities to produce large breakfasts or...More

On our visit to Eagan yesterday we took our morning coffee at Bijou. Clean, good range of home baked. The lunch menu looked good. Pleasant staff. Highly recommended.

Lovely food served really quickly after ordering. Highly recommend the cheese and haggis panini - lovely. Cakes looked amazing but sadly no room left to eat one. As it is very popular you may have to queue for a table, but it's worth the wait.

Service, food and setting were all lovely. Only small complaint would be the tiny amount of salad, particularly the coleslaw; the whole portion fit on one fork (thus, a single mouthful). Would have been nice to have a bit more than that. Would probably try...More
