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.

We visit this cafe every time we are back in Inverness, staff are very friendly and knowledgable when asked about different coffees. The black pudding roll is delicious alongside the freshly baked scones. If you haven't been, I would recommend this for morning tea or lunch. Thanks folks and keep up the great work!

Arrived for lunch, reduced menu due to technical problems in the kitchen. Long time before anyone took our order, when it came we had to go and find someone to give us cutlery. Someone was trying to pay by credit card, the machine was new and the staff couldn't get it to work. The customer was kept waiting for a... More

I regularly eat here. I pop in for coffee or tea, sometimes have scones (yum, especially the cheese ones), bacon roll, soup which is always tasty or I often have a sandwich. The sandwiches are really generously filled, with a sizeable side of coleslaw, lovely dressed salad and a few crisps. All really good value. We have had a burger,... More

We were recommended to go to this cafe by a shop keeper in the city and I am so glad we followed her advice. The concept of the cafe is wonderful. Not only do they employ young people so they learn essential life and work skills, but every penny of profit goes to support the disadvantaged young in the Highlands.... More

We visited Cafe Artysan at the beginning of June with a group of friends before we set off on our North Coast 500 trip. They quickly re-arranged tables for us all to sit together without any problem at all. The cafe is a social enterprise and helps young people in the community. We had soup and sandwiches which were really... More
