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.

Visited for a surprise birthday party. Buffet savouries and sweets were divine and plentiful. Amazingly good staff and a fantastic visit.

My friend and I ordered baked potatoes- I had chicken Mayo and cheese ( a tiny sprinkling was all that was in it) and my friend had prawn ! I emptied the pot of coleslaw over my potato…. Well it turned out it was off!...After telling the waitress she then got me a chicken n bacon sandwich ( my friend wouldn’t eat anything else) …. I couldn’t believe it when the bread was stale!!!!!! I was too embarrassed to say anything about it - not that anyone asked!!!!! We ( wrongly) paid up and got out of there!!!!! DISAPPOINTED!!!!More

I attended the deli for what I assumed was a very easy order, A iced latte. Firstly the length of time to make one coffee was excessive . Staff were all over the place and I was asked 3 times by three different staff members...what cake I ordered where they were in the the same 3 meter space. The woman made the coffee in the back and yet again I was asked twice about my syrup. She hands over a cup with lukewarm “ice latte” . Firstly there was no milk it was the colour of espresso. But so watery ! They also seemed to miss out the main part , ice ? Could see particles dissolving in this drink. Quite clearly a sachet or something similar . Very poorMore

Having been told about another food place which was closed, we were at a loss as to where to eat, we didn't want to go to ASDA and we were told about the deli. We arrived just before the lunch rush and my aunt, nanna...and I all had paninis (they had soup and panini). As a vegetarian, it is always good to have mozzarella, pesto and tomato as a panini which I love. So many places are just cheese and tomato. It was nice to have something I love and there were plenty of options for alternative milk. When we finished our dinner, the place was quite busy with people. Will go here again.More

Went for breakfast and ordered avocado toast with poached eggs and tomatoes . When meal arrived I was given two very overcooked fried eggs with a few halved cherry tomatoes on side and a scraping of avocado . When I asked about poached eggs I...was told by the member of staff that they couldn’t make poached eggs because they were using the pan to make soup. Very poor quality and service.More

Met friends for coffee etc. It was busy. Nice scone and coffee. I believe the soup was nice. We popped onto gift shop and found it quite pricey.. some of the items were a bit samey and some of the items were more expensive than...other gift shops. Used to love the garden centre but it caters more for the younger people in the large play area and disappointed in selection of plants.More

We popped in for a breakfast over the festive period when we were out and about, we both said it was one of the best breakfasts we had had in a while. The place is very clean and the staff attentive.

On my receipt it has this establishment as "The Deli, 4 Southfield Drive, Elgin". Pleasant staff, a good layout, clean toilets and a fine ambience. Our soup of the day, with oatcake, was enjoyable at under £4 each. The thing that stuck in my memory...of the place, was ordering a glass of milk, expecting for £1.80, a large glass, not a tiny one. You can buy over 2 litres of milk for less than that! Shocking! Just because of that, I won't be returning to The Deli.More

My son was in doing his theory test. I popped in for a coffee and bacon roll. The bacon roll was delicious... cooked to perfection. No fat. TOp marks. This was followed by a latte and chocolate and orange scone.... then my son had a...panini. The Deli had a lovely atmosphere and it was very comfortable on the leather sofas. The staff were very friendly and helpful and happy. Out assistant was Janna. It's a cafe I would highly recommend and this is now going to be somewhere I make a regular visit to. Value for money, a great selection in the menu. Be back soon.More

Came here after being recommended it by a friend. Waitress really friendly, but ordered a scone and was served a shop bought one, served with a small tub of margarine!! Not even proper butter and no jam either. Cheeky when they are set out in...cake domes making them look like home made ones.

Went in for some chicken broth for lunch as not been in since change of owners. Definitely left feeling disappointed! A complete lack of customer service, made to feel completely unwelcome. What happened to service with a smile? The soup was really bland also &...tasteless and I didn’t finish it for that reasonMore

We used to love this place. Always a friendly welcome, great food and decent quantities. Not so now. The quantities are paltry and embarrassing. If you're going to put coleslaw on a plate with salad, a teaspoon is not enough. This place used to be...great, but now it's very low quality and you don't get a welcome. Won't be returning which is sad because we've been going for years.More

Never been disappointed.. Food is fresh and home bakes are amazing. The coffee is probably the best in Elgin and with parking outside it makes it the perfect place to meet friends and enjoy a relaxed catch up. Well worth a visit.
