On a trip to visit a relative but having been several times before on trips north, any excuse would suffice. Good, indeed excellent range of gifts, great coffee & hot chocolate, smashing menu. Never even remotely disappointed.

Nice place, although was confused as to how to get in. I'm probably not the target market here, neither was my brother. 2 hungry people looking forward to a belly busting breakfast and.... Well...... What came out was 2 very small oval plates (think slightly larger than a side plate) with an extremely thin slice of black pudding, 2 lovely... More

Im sorry you felt your breakfast was not satisfactory. As it is called in our menu a 'Bijou' breakfast, it is a small sized meal. We are a coffee shop, not a restaurant and do not have the kitchen facilities to produce large breakfasts or full meals for that matter. Which is why we stick to our snack menu and... More

On our visit to Eagan yesterday we took our morning coffee at Bijou. Clean, good range of home baked. The lunch menu looked good. Pleasant staff. Highly recommended.

Lovely food served really quickly after ordering. Highly recommend the cheese and haggis panini - lovely. Cakes looked amazing but sadly no room left to eat one. As it is very popular you may have to queue for a table, but it's worth the wait.

Service, food and setting were all lovely. Only small complaint would be the tiny amount of salad, particularly the coleslaw; the whole portion fit on one fork (thus, a single mouthful). Would have been nice to have a bit more than that. Would probably try it again.

Coffee is the best in Elgin. The food is light and tasty. This is by far the best cafe in Elgin centre well worth a visit for coffee and lunch. The cakes and scones are all fresh and worth a nibble or 2

Great cafe serving real homemade food and cakes!! And all for a good price. Lovely friendly staff. Only downside is the rather tired looking decor. The table we were at was broken and the chairs were worn.
