Very nice café run by the church and volunteers. Service was quick and friendly and the scones are freshly made and very good. Nice pleasant place to have a leisurely refreshment break.

My friend and I enjoyed some lovely scones, lattes and tea. The black pudding and cheese scone was very good, I was pleased to see something a bit different. The service was good and I really like the relaxed atmosphere. Perfect location on the high street in Inverurie in a pretty church setting. I believe the cafe is also ran... More

My elderly parents are regular customers and we were greeted with a very warm welcome. I believe that the lunch menu offers a range of dishes including some with more unusual flavours. However, we went rather late in the day for a quick cuppa. My latte was delicious. I have not been for several years but look forward to returning... More

We use this restaurant whenever we are Inverurie. There is a warm and friendly welcome and this more than matched by the quality and presentation of the food.The staff are all volunteers and can not be faulted. Everything about the establishment is clean and first class

We came in for a coffee and scone and had a warm welcome. The service was quick and efficient from someone who really seemed to care and be interested in what they were doing. The coffee was tasty and the scone was very good. It tasted home-baked. The place was busy without feeling that they wanted to rush us out.... More

Returned here after a long time and found that it was exactly as it had been 2 - 3 years ago. It's coasting along on goodwill from Church members and it's charitable status. In reality this is a poorly run operation producing pretty bland food - it appears the kitchen doesn't have the confidence to season the food it serves!... More

Went here for a coffee and cake. My friend asked about gluten free biscuits and was given a long list of cakes available. My choice of lemon drizzle cake was also on the gf list. It's was light and moist with plenty lemon flavour. Pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff .
