Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stopped here, intending to just have a coffee but the cafe smelt so delicious when we walked in that we ordered soup too. We had the sweetcorn chowder and the spicy lentil soup, both were yummy and very good value for money too. 100% recommend...this place and if we lived in Elgin we would definitely be regulars!More

Lovely warm welcome and fantastic selection of healthy foods and juices. And the cakes do not disappoint! Had the pistachio and cranberry Rocky Road (which happens to be vegan) which came in a portion large enough to use as a doorstop! Keep doing what you’re...doing please, it’s a winner 🏆More

Stopped by during a quick visit to the lovely town of Elgin. Wonderful cakes - my pear and apple tart was perfect, while my wife departed from a lifelong rejection of rocky road to taste one that was just sublime - pistachio and carob based...and sugar free. Don't miss this!More

I have been going to this place on/off for years; sit-in / takeaway, coffe, cakes, sandwiches, soups etc - have NEVER been disappointed and the staff are always so friendly. Lots of vegan options (that's why I go there) and the prices are very reasonable....Laid back atmosphere when sitting in.More

I won't say it's a hidden gem but more like an unassuming delight. There was a warm welcome at the door and the service was excellent throughout. I can't post any photos because the bagel was so good I devoured it. Dining room was inviting...although I took mine to go. My advise would be to order a juice peruse the menu and be prepared for YumMore

Excellent choice for healthy eating, ideal for vegetarians and vegans. The specific benefits of the menu items are clearly explained, Very helpful and friendly staff. Moderate amount of seating but a takeaway service is available. It can be a little noisy as the smoothies are...prepared. Well worth visiting if you enjoy healthy eatingMore

Found in a quest to avoid the big chains on a sunny day in Elgin. Superb coffee, awesome smoothie, fantastic cakes and great service. Recently redecorated apparently and looks excellent.

Met friends for lunch.. The quality of food is very high. This is is not your average cafe. The standards and menu is 5star restaurant quality. The focus is on healthy nutritional food but still plenty treats with cakes and tray bakes , pastries etc....sandwiches are freshly made and wide choice of breads from wraps to sourdough. Presented beautifully. Smoothies also a speciality and didn’t disappoint on the flavour. The owners are soo friendly . This is a gem of a place and we will definitely be back.More

One of Elgin's best lunch spots! Bagels are packed full and delicious, always great selection of fillings and Specials! Cakes are amazing too, so tasty and majority Vegan (and in my head I just think that means healthier so I'll happily eat the whole thing)

This cafe offers good filter coffee and lovely cake and snacks in gently bohemian atmosphere. It is just off the high street in Forres down one of those narrow lanes that are a feature of this gracious old burgh. Good place to stop after shopping.

Visited for lunch. The menu offered was great with the focus on healthy options. My wife and I very much enjoyed our dishes. The members of staff were friendly and very helpful and although the establishment is quite small the overall experience was great. Will...definitely be back as this is by far the best eating experience we’ve had in Elgin.More

Great service, great atmosphere, great food and a really considered offering. Lots of choices on the menu. Great way to eat "healthy" without sacrificing "Yum" Soup of the day was DELICIOUS and the toasted sourdough made me homesick it was so good
