    Default Harbour Cafe, Wick

    What a difference since the Harbour cafe has been taken over, and it is so popular and always busy now. Lovely huge portions and variety of home baking, big bowls of freshly made soup, and lovely snacks etc. Pot of tea and china cups/mugs. Enjoyed my visit very much and will go back often.

    The shop has been changed and is now nearly ready and will be a coffee/tea/snack bar etc, and the cafe next door will become a restaurant.

    I heard that part was going to be a 'workmans cafe' or scruffy folk.

    A workmens' cafe is a good idea; they need somewhere where their work clothes won't be frowned upon. Not everybody likes eating out of a piece box and making up a flask plus they can all meet up for the craic!

    I'm lost!!
    We used to go in there quite often and thought the food was great, then we went in a few months ago and it suddenly seemed a dive. One very unfriendly indian lady was serving and the place looked bare and awful. I remember seeing the Tunnoch tea cakes on the side looked like they'd been sat on, they were that flat. Anyways we vowed never to go in again.
    Has it been taken over again then????

    well im very surprised about the previous comment as every time i have been there it has been wonderful. All the staff are very welcoming and helpful also the food is excellent and you can tell that everything is homemade fresh on the day.
