Used to be a great place for a lunch, will not be back!!! My wife ordered the Baked Potato. "No Baked Potatoes" the serving girl replied. Ok I'll have the Soup & scone. "No Scones" We were in at 12:30pm yet these items were unavailable. Commented that they should maybe remove the sign advertising a 'Soup & Scone Deal'. Was... More

This is well off the beaten track but it has a comprehensive menu with big portions, reasonable prices and has always offered quick service. There is also free wifi and Inverness's greatest shop of all: HIS is part of the building!

The best baked potatoes in Inverness (they even beat M & S) and the accompanying salad is good as well. The breakfasts are great too. The staff are all nice and one or two go out their way to really help. Also caters for gluten free. BEST VALUE FOR MONEY IN INVERNESS.

One lady was so rude it was unreal. (I think she was actually the manager) Not the cleanest. Dirty cutlery. Not returning... More

Favourite stop-off for a bit of father-son bonding. We arrived late today but they made me an amazing salad.

Have been in this shop loads of times, and never knew it had a cafe. We had some great lentil soup, and it was very reasonably priced. Very busy, and quite noisy with lots of kids in there - possibly as it was a Saturday. Would nip in again for a quick snack.
