I thought this was a lovely place. In Inverness working at the theatre and needed to get something sorted on my bike. The workshop is great, very helpful and the cafe super tasty. Both sides of the business have a gentle, friendly atmosphere.

A treasure, so glad we found! Fresh, clean ingredients with great homemade taste. We returned 4 times in our short time in Inverness. Lovely friendly people who work there are an added plus to their great food.

Veggie and vegan options - great soup sandwiches and cake. A really charming café. Great place for a quiet read or a chat with friends - and of course, to bring your bike to be mended!

We stopped in for a sandwich and a coffee, not looking for a big meal but something good and satisfying for a light lunch. Kind of a hipster eco-vibe, but with toys for the kids and a changing table in the bathroom. Our sandwiches weren't...More
