Happy Thursday Friends!
After living in Inverness for a few months I’ve discovered some really cool places to eat so here I am sharing them for anyone who needs a little restaurant inspiration whether you’re just tourist or an Inverness veteran.
Yesterday I discovered The Little Teapot, a hidden gem amidst the jewellers and souvenir shops in the city centre’s Victorian Market on the Queensgate Arcade side. With big glass windows and an inviting interior, The Little Teapot is a 2 floor coffee shop/tea room overlooking
one of the Victorian Market’s busy corridors. Although situated inside, there is plenty of light streaming in from the skylights on the ceiling.
What Should I Eat?
The Little Teapot has a small menu offering minimal breakfast options (served until 11:30am) , soup, sandwiches, panini’s and toasties with a good selection of fillings as well as homemade cakes, scones and waffles. As small as the menu is, they know what they’re doing and they do it well. I had a ham and cheese panini which was accompanied by crisps, coleslaw and a side salad. Everything was fresh and tasty with no scrimping when it came to the ham and cheese. Presentation was simple but appreciated.
My mom, who is quite the food critic herself said it was the nicest thing she’d eaten since we moved to Inverness last November so it wasn’t just me who thought it was great.
What Should I Drink?
A selection of coffees, loose leaf teas and soft drinks you’ll have no problem finding something you like. I suggest trying Toni’s Deluxe Hot Chocolate that has all the works! The barista even managed to convince a really macho looking Canadian guy to get some mini marshmallows on his hot chocolate.
How Much For Lunch?
In total we paid around £14 for two panini’s and two soft drinks. Roughly £7 per person for lunch isn’t too bad in my opinion. I’d say it was mid-range price wise but when food is good then you don’t mind paying for it.
Where Can I Find The Little Teapot?
7-9 Queensgate Arcade
IV1 1PQ Inverness, Scotland

In conclusion this place is worth a stop! If not for the food but the warm atmosphere and pleasant staff but seriously the food is delicious you’d be crazy not to try it!
