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.

We were served swiftly and with great cheerfulness. The soup and sandwich deal was fantastic. But the baking including the Victoria Sandwich cake was out of this world.

Reached by a spiral staircase in a fascinating shop this modern restaurant offers a selection of cakes and scones with plentiful plates of pannini and other sandwiches. Excellent staff and good prices.
