Velocity was a great spot for a quick lunch on a rainy day in Inverness. A bowl of steaming hot curried beetroot soup was just what the doctor ordered. Their coffee was pretty good too, as was the white chocolate brownie that I simply couldn't resist ordering. They also do a range of sandwiches and salads. All vegetarian and all very reasonably priced.

We flew from Dallas to Inverness and were exhausted as we rolled in to Velocity. Fortunately, we had stumbled upon the perfect spot! We ordered soups, salads, a sandwhich and a lovely slice of lemon almond cake. All were above and beyond our expectations. The food was tasty and healthy, which was the perfect start of a long vacation. Several tables were filled with friends who were meeting for coffee or families lingering over a casual lunch. The bike workshop added a really fun element. If we return to Inverness, we'll look forward to our next visit.

A bright room, good coffee and home baking all laced with friendly service (including for bikes) make this the nicest café in Inverness.

We read reviews and just happened to walk past this cafe on the way to Inverness city centre. The cafe is entrance to bicycle workshop where you can do your own repairs or enlist the help of a mechanic at extra charge. We decided to have the soup of the day - Curried beetroot and tomato soup. It was delicious!
Staff were friendly and welcoming.
Very good value.

My husband and I came here for lunch on our honeymoon after spotting it in a lonely planet guide. We made the right decision! This place does great hearty homemade veggie food perfect for lunch or to sit in with a book and a coffee. The staff were friendly and helpful and also aware of allergies and intolerances which a lot of food places are still ignorant about. We had the most beautiful homemade soups and bought sandwiches to take away for lunch. Thoroughly recommended! We hope to come back one day when we are next in Scotland.
