We usually call in for tea/coffee and scones or cakes. Baking is fresh and very tasty. Tea is made with leaves, not bags. Many of the staff are youngsters who are being trained to work in the catering business. They are attentive, polite and friendly. Cafe is bright, airy and kept in a very clean state. Prices are reasonable. All... More

Despite the dubious name and proximity to the bus garage ( a plus in some respects) this is the place to go in Inverness for a fried egg sandwich and a decent cup of tea. Only downside the absence of marmite And bovril ( really?) but in all other respects ( including edible gluten free toast, pleasant staff and proper... More

My husband and I had coffee and shared a yummy slice of gluten free carrot cake here recently. Coffee was super too. Quick service and very friendly staff.

Stopped by and checked if they served breakfast, great decision. You won't find any buffet style breakfasts that so many garden centres serve in this cafe. All food cooked to order and local produce being used, coffee and toast arrived at the same time as your meal. Brilliant service. A great asset to Inverness.

We have visited this wee cafe a few times and have never been disappointed. The food is well presented and very tasty. Cake selection late in the day can be limited but that's to be expected as everything is fresh. The staff are friendly and attentive the price is very reasonable and well worth a tip when you leave.

A cafe that is well supported ,(it is likely to be busy) by a wide variety of folks ( Mums and prams meet here- wide enough for a buggy or two). It is close to the Bus Station and Railway Station.
