Seated by a stroppy waitress then ignored for ten minutes, walked out since no one could be bothered coming to take our order

Decided to try here this time as I’d looked at it before but didn’t go. Turned out this place was great. The girl who served us was really friendly and attentive which was nice. Went for the porridge with berries and toast with jam, simple...but very tasty. The only thing I’d say that’d improve the experience is that due to poor extraction inside, the smell of cooking is really strong and does cling to clothing. However, that will not put me off from returning as the food is great and staff are really nice.More

Love this cafe. It’s our 2nd time at it. I love the “build your own” cooked breakfast. Saves so much waste. The style of the cafe is fab too. No faults. I also absolutely loved the timpani they had attached to the ceiling. Such great...decor.More

We were very pleased to find this place to have breakfast. They have a great menu with lots of options, even vegans/gluten free. You can compose your breakfast to your liking.It's simple, but it's good. Staff is great, very helpful and efficient. We were seated...in no time and they accommodated our little one with a tasty, kid-sized hot chocolate. The place itself is nicely decorated. Nothing too fancy, but it does the job. A great place overall that I warmly recommend!More

We decided to come here during a trip to Inverness and after having read the good reviews we thought it would be a good choice. We left pretty underwhelmed and quite frankly pretty disappointed. The service was really slow, we waited over 20mins for our...order to arrive, the food arrived before any of the drinks, the food was lukewarm and the coffee was burnt. We wouldn’t be rushing back.More

Visited during a small 2 day vacation, and would definitely visit again! The staff are very welcoming and the cafe itself is beautiful. Great place for food and silent old movies - as well as your local CBD. :))

Excellent, covid-friendly cafe with excellent breakfast (sold until noon!) and great service. We couldn’t have asked for a better breakfast before hopping on a train. We chowed down. The food was well cooked - who doesn’t love a Scottish Brekkie!

Good range of choice of lunch dishes both hot and cold served without too long a wait in pleasant surroundings in the city centre.
