Called in for coffee and cake on a very cold day in February. The coffee was great and the gluten free ginger cake was delicious and moist. The staff were very friendly.

We were in Forres and fancied a bite to eat and a cuppa. We tried this place for the first time and it was lovely. Could do with a wee bit of paint or something to make it a bit more modern, but clean, and very quick service. Very good prices. I had a tea and a cheese scone, it... More

Veggie breakfast is good but all looks a bit deep fried? Soya milk for lattes is great. A dairy free spread for toast would be good as they cater for dairy free in coffees!

Stopped here for tea and cake after an afternoon in Forres. Very tasty cakes, especially the White chocolate topped millionaire shortbread. Yummy!

This restaurant/cafe has a good selection of food nicely presented. The portion sizes are good as is the quality of the food and service. Good for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea.

Cafe was quiet, plenty available tables. Ordered soup and sandwiches and pot of tea for one. Tea came quickly, however, the rest of the order did not!! Waitress came to the table after 20 minutes and said soup's on it's, 15 minutes later no soup or sandwiches, paid for the tea and left. Very disorganised, won't be back.

Doesn't look much from the outside and could do with a spruce up. We'd the tea for two @ £10.99 and it was superb. This compromised of sandwiches, a scone, tray bake and a slice of cake. Lovely big pot of tea that didn't dribble. Nice friendly staff, all a very pleasant experience and I would recommend. The menu is... More

Waited over 45 minutes for our order. When it did arrive the order was wrong. Very disappointing, redeemed slightly by correcting the price to reflect wrong order on paying

Great breakfast nicely cooked and service was good. Very satisfying. Lots of room for children and pram. Good choice on the menu too. Would recommend for a good meal before heading off to the beach!
