We were walking round Elgin and popped in for a coffee and cake. The coffee and walnut cake was delicious and the coffee was lovely too.

We (family of 5) popped in here for coffee/cake to break up our travels in the highlands. Drinks we're lovely, however chocolate cake was dry. Definitely recommend the mint aero bar!

Visited for lunch recently at a weekend. Was very busy, however we were quickly seated. Service was a bit slow but ok. Two mains order. Pizza was very good, Chicken noodles pretty average at best, lacking in flavours. A fairly middle of the road experience...More
