Stopped in here for some coffee and cake to take away. Had been before for lunch and meant to write a review then too because both times were lovely! The staff are friendly, the decor is pretty and the cakes are delicious. I actually prefer...getting coffee and cake/lunch here than anywhere in Inverness city centre. Will definitely be back!More

Wow wow wow! This cafe is a hidden gem in the highlands. It’s assessable with on-site parking and from the outside looks like a small house but inside it’s quirky and cosy. The decor is cute inside and has a large cake display. Myself and...my friend visited for the first time today, the staff were very lovely, friendly and welcoming. The waitress bought over some water and told us about the menu. The menu was a good size with plenty of choice with lots of vegan options which is great to see. I ordered a double shot cappuccino which was 10/10. For the meals, I can honestly say it was the best lunch we have had in a cafe in the highlands to date and trust me, we have tried a lot of cafes. Everything was so fresh and of the best quality, everything about the meal was flawless, to be honest the whole visit was flawless. Highly recommend the french toast and the haggis toastie. We will defiantly be making the trip from Inverness often for lunch. If you stumble across this cafe, please try it because you will not be disappointed at all. Highly highly recommend!More

Just had brunch at Cafe 82, its the most delicious and tasty food and cooked to perfection. The best vegan breakfast ever and the earl grey tea is so flavoursome. Lovely friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended not just for vegans but everyone.

Wonderful wee cafe, bags of character, relaxing environs, friendly staff, food superlicious! They cater for GF/vegetarian/vegan too. Interesting drinks range. Looking forward to trying their Pizza Saturdays when we return, Covid restrictions permitting ;-)

Thoroughly enjoyed an extremely delicious lunch, coffee and cake today. Very fresh and innovative options - including vegan, gluten free (and a raw blueberry and raspberry tart). So good healthy options - and all very very tasty. Staff were exceptionally lovely. Thank you!

What a fantastic find! Lovely little cafe with a huge character. We stopped here for a take out coffee and a raw, vegan cake which was rich and scrumptious. Fortunately we were staying nearby on holiday and on the Saturday night were able to enjoy...their wood burning oven pizza (1 vegan, 1 vegetarian) - scrummy! Highly recommend a visit to this cafe.More

Excellent Brownie and Coffee. Was desperate for a coffee . So well organised for Covid. Sad wasn’t ready for lunch or something bigger. The brownie was the best ever had.

This is a lovely little cafe with a new menu each day.... The French toast with thick bacon, mascarpone and blueberry compote was the best I've ever tasted! Family friendly amazing little place

Just ok. Could do with a little more advertising as it’s outside Loch Ness and you don’t see it until you’ve passed the village green. Ok to call in if you need to.
