We have visited this wee cafe a few times and have never been disappointed. The food is well presented and very tasty. Cake selection late in the day can be limited but that's to be expected as everything is fresh. The staff are friendly and attentive the price is very reasonable and well worth a tip when you leave.

A cafe that is well supported ,(it is likely to be busy) by a wide variety of folks ( Mums and prams meet here- wide enough for a buggy or two). It is close to the Bus Station and Railway Station. Open from early morning for the 'filled roll & hot drink ' offer. Normally has two 'home' made soups,... More

We lunched at Café Artysan. The food was great (Cullen shink was excellent and the chips really good too).

Proper bread (looked freshly baked) - I had chicken and bacon toastie and it was proper chicken (not like a deli filler you get in supermarkets). Sister had macaroni cheese... More

We always stop here for lunch if we are in Inverness as you can't beat the cullen skink, although this time I had a change and had the soup of the day - haggis broth which was equally good. The coffee and cake deal is good value at £4.00.

What a little gem of a cafe. Popped in whilst out Christmas shopping, and it w as perfect. Bright and clean, super fast polite service, good simple food, just fitted the bill. It was quite busy, plenty of shoppers having their lunch here. Just round the corner from the bus station which must be handy for travellers, altho I think... More

We visited here quite recently with friends that were waiting for a bus, and was pleasantly surprised. We arrived about 11.30 and decided to have coffee and a scone, very nice indeed. By the time we were leaving the place was almost full with people in for lunch and the smell of soup, especially the Cullen Skink, was very nice,... More
