Stopped in for breakfast and it was perfect. Great coffee served as well. Although I didn't have any; the homemade cake selection looking amazing. Nice outdoor area for when the sun is out.

Good little joint to grab lobster or meat sandwich and drinks. Stop by during day but heard it was good at night.

Nice ambience, friendly and efficient service but most importantly excellent coffee. Obviously popular, with booked tables.

I, along with most of the other reviewers, have been commenting on the wrong establishment. This is a review for the Courtyard in Dingwall, Nova Scotia, CANADA. Most reviewers have been commenting on the Courtyard in Dingwall, SCOTLAND. Easy enough mistake to make I suppose.

I felt the kids sandwich portion was inconsistent - £2.50 for half a cheese sandwich, a couple of bits of carrot, couple of bits of cucumber and... More

Literally sited in a courtyard, this is an ideal stopping off point for anything from a coffee (superb quality no matter what you choose) through an array of tray bakes, scones, etc etc ad infinitum to soups, panninis, sandwiches, baked potatoes etc. All served in a very efficient and customer friendly manner. Recommended, only criticism is with some customers not... More

It had the largest choice of flavoured coffees I think I have seen anywhere with tempting delights such as White Chocolate Coffee and one of my favourites Gingerbread Latte - what torture given I had promised to give up such delights in favour of the less calorific black...
