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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Found this coffee house online as I was on holiday. We were shown to a table and they were happy to let our dog in as long as it was well behaved. My husband had coffee and a roll on sausage which was absolutely brilliant....I had an oat flat white and I asked if they had gluten free cakes, which they had. I had a beautiful lemon, lime and orange sponge which was also dairy free. It was so flavoursome. The staff were friendly and they gave our dog a biscuit.More

I looked on trip advisor where to eat lunch in Elgin. So pleased we chose this cafe. Friendly staff and we had an excellent lunch. Homemade lentil soup and haggis beetroot and cheddar toastie. Well worth a visit.

The perfect breakfast is served here, always the same top quality produce and amazing service, never had anything but great food here. I don't know where they get the coffee beans from but the coffee is something to be savoured, I've struggled to find coffee...as good as this anywhere in Scotland.

Having spent a week in the Moray area we were looking for a quality coffee. Finally we found it here. Many other establishments in the same street that you come to first when you head from the Main Street. But keep going because this place...served really great quality coffee. It was spotlessly clean very friendly staff. Had coffee and cake both of which were a very high standard. Best we had in three weeks in Scotland!More
