The Little Teapot was brought to my attention recently as a new-ish place for a local lunch which has opened in the Victorian Market in Inverness. My friend Elizabeth of Capability Browns supplies some of her delicious bakes there so we thought we’d take a look during a trip into town recently.
Our first impressions were that there are lot of seating options – the space is used really well. As well as a few tables outside the cafe, (while still under cover of the market) there are two floors of tables and chairs to choose from. Throughout there are bookcases which had a few items for sale – these looked a wee bit sparse though, maybe more items will be added in time. We did notice that there were wee areas of clutter – someone’s handbag tucked into a high chair (presumably belonging to staff as our table was the closest to the high chairs) and a few shopping bags in front of the shelves. It didn’t bother us too much, it was more that we noticed it.
The time that Mr B went, he had a sandwich and traybake, which set him up nicely for an afternoon of work. When we went together, we had a chicken, mozzarella and pesto toastie, accompanied with coleslaw, crisps and side salad. It was tasty and I especially liked the bread, which tasted great.
Mr B had the country vegetable soup with a roll and he said it was great – a good generous portion with a lovely flavour.
We thought prices were reasonable for our lunch choices, the soup, my sandwich and a soft drink came to just over £10. We didn’t sample any bakes on this occasion but will come back again! The Little Teapot also offers a range of smoothies and Cheeky Moo icecream which I haven’t seen in any other local cafe, and it’s a relaxing place to spend a while.
