Had a lovely cheese and ham toastie and tea for two. Ordered and arrived quickly even though they were so very busy with diners just arriving at the same time as we did. Great service and staff with a smile. Lovely clean and fresh premises.

We visited the smaller of the two branches, Sunflower 2. Nice and friendly. Soup was lovely but coffee not that great (cappuccino). The other branched looked nicer, just down the street, and had bigger menu.

This small bakery and cafe on the Main Street of Tain offers wonderful, fresh rolls and baked goods. Plenty of seating for dining in but also a bustling take away business. Soup of the day is piping hot and comes with a fresh backed roll.

Had to wait ages to get served as the waitress was more interested in her phone. Food took ages to come even though the place wasn't busy. When it did arrive it was bland and tasteless. Not sure she is even knows how to cook....More
