Stopped here unexpectedly on way home. Really nice late lunch. I had the special which was goat's cheese and walnut salad. Excellent. My companion had all day Scottish breakfast and particularly liked the black pudding. Service very friendly and efficient.

Driving through Fochabers we stopped for a quick bite and this cafe was the first we passed , quick look at the menu displayed and went in , quickly seated , nice interior without being over stated , tables well spaced apart and served promptly,...we opted for the breakfast and were not disappointed , full breakfast with tea/ coffee and toast , well cooked and tasty , no faults to be found , youngsters serving but very professional in their attitude, top up coffee nice touch also , give it a visit I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.More

The French onion soup was great! Excellent value for a light lunch and a real coffee. Well worth a visit to the quaiche!

Had an amazing burger with the best chips ever spoilt by some idiot who doesn't know the difference between a chopping board and a plate.

Been on a few previous occasions, but this time just for a snack, cheese and onion toasties, and salad. Simple but effective.
