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.

So if you're going to open a cafe I think the first thing you would do is think " What would I think would be the ideal cafe?". You might think of keeping food affordable.always having beautiful vegan and gluten free options without acting like you're a saint or a genius for doing so.Maybe you would lose some potential profit here and there by using tasty high quality often locally produced organic ingredients. You might put the same effort and standard into the coffee choice too. You'd probably like to give decent portions knowing from experience that skimpiness can make even the mightiest cake leave a bad taste in your mouth. If you're not an ars*h** you'd most likely want the place to be inclusive and tolerant. Usually folk start out idealistic but compromise their initial idea for one reason or other. Cafe Fika is the embodiment of these ideals. Im a regular and I can't praise it enough

My girlfriend and called into this fab little gem of a cafe off the High St in Forres for a catch up natter. It is really lovely with great coffee and delicious home made cakes, scones and soup. Though it is small it is really nicely decorated and a lovely environment to meet and chat.

Very welcoming pretty and relaxed cafe. We enjoyed lunch and yummy bakes as well as refills of filter coffee as all good fika should be! The owner is very friendly, eager to make your experience warm and enjoyable. Attractive layout.

We visited the Fika cafe recently while on holiday in the area. We initially received a warm welcome. We ordered two cappuccino coffees and a scone. The coffees were very nice and well presented. Unfortunately our experience went down hill from there. There were two seats at the window which we went to sit at. We were advised that these seats were reserved for 2 pm. This was about 1.40 pm so we went to other seats in case the people came in early. The cafe is very small and there is not a lot of space. We ended up taking two seats next to the till area which was raised above the floor area below. Two apparently regular customers were sat in the corner. The proprietor / employee had an ongoing conversation over our head with these customers to our total exclusion. This conduct totally undermined the initial friendly welcome and made us feel awkward and keen to leave. We would not recommend this cafe as a result and would not visit again.

Hey, David. Thanks for your feedback and for being honest about your experience at Fika. We appreciate your kind words about our coffee and bakes. We're sorry to hear that you felt awkward and wanted to leave. You're right that the cafe is small and space is very limited just now with the current restrictions in place. We are aware that it's challenging to have conversations in there when everyone is in closer proximity than you'd find in most places. We do have regular customers who we're friends with but we didn't mean to make you feel excluded - we're sorry about that. We would have taken that on board if mentioned at the time. Thanks for popping in. Naomi and Brogan

Dropped into the cafe for the first time today. Cosy friendly little cafe, fine coffee and tea and select choice of lovely cakes. We had the chocolate and pear scones - OMG - lush! Missed out on this cafe due to work and Covid, but now retired so will be back

A fantastic espresso. One of the best I’ve had in Scotland. Great selection of cakes - I had the cinnamon roll which was very good. A very cool cafe with a great variety of seating options and newspapers/books to read. Staff were friendly and obviously passionate about their cafe. Would highly recommend.

Had an amazing lunch at Cafe Fika. It’s a lovely wee place with a very tasty menu with plenty for vegetarians and vegans. I had the bagel with cream cheese and tomato and basil. It was lovely and the raspberry side salad was delicious too. I had a chai latte to drink which was also excellent We will be back very soon

Lovely and clean. Owners very friendly. Vegetarian. Food was nice but possibly a wee bit expensive for what you get, even though it was homemade

Unfortunately can’t comment on anything other than the very rude “welcome” we received on entering the cafe. In fact we were asked to leave as we had our baby with us, a rule they have apparently always enforced and when we asked why that was we were told there doesn’t have to be a reason. Certainly won’t return even without our baby and wouldn’t recommend this strange little place.

Came here today for a wee spot of lunch with a friend. It was excellent. We both opted for soup. Spicy tomato & lentil. Well tasty. The star however was the tea. Best brew in Forres. A very friendly & welcoming cafe which celebrates being different but welcoming. Highly recommend.
