Friendly staff will serve you a delicious breakfast or lunch in a clean, welcoming environment. The porridge French toast is out of this world. For something lighter, choose scrambled eggs cooked to perfection with a side of grilled tomatoes. The coffee is always piping hot...More

Just stopped for lunch, had a terrific club (as in the photo above) on home-made porridge bread (not in the photo above). Simple food, done well, at a reasonable cost, served quickly and efficiently. Hard to beat.

We stopped here for breakfast after leaving Inverness and would suggest this over any breakfast spot in Inverness. Friendly staff. The bacon is lean and tasty as can be. Also, the bread is home made and so thick it could be made into a meal...More

This restaurant is just open for breakfast and lunch, so keep that in mind. It doesn't have an extensive menu, but for breakfast and lunch, you will find enough to satisfy. We had the homemade soup of the day (hamburger) with a homemade biscuit. It...More

This looks like a local favourite which has had a rcent makeover, the owner was young and friendly and the interior laidback but contemporary. We stopped for a coffee on the way through the town and were surprised by the atmosphere and quality food.
