If there is one thing I love as much as coffee and cake, its a tasty bacon roll, and Chimes in Forres offers some of the most delicious bacon baps I’ve ever had.
Chimes is a lovely and quaint cafe/restaurant, that also offers an outside catering service.
I went there this week for a nice relaxed breakfast, where I had amazingly juicy bacon in a soft roll with a wee dash of tomato sauce. My lovely wife Debbie, who isn’t a big meat eater, opted for vegetarian sausage in a roll, which she said was delicious.
Chimes pride themselves on using locally sourced foods for their breakfast, lunches, snacks and fresh baking, which I believe is a great ideology to have! They also offer a range of tasty gluten free, vegetarian and vegan food, cakes and drinks.
I had my usual coffee on my latest visit to Chimes, but I have to recommend the amazing Mint Aero Milkshake that they have on their menu. The sweet tooth in me absolutely adores it! It is a delicious blend of chocolate and mint goodness, and makes the perfect combination of dessert and cold drink.
I can also highly recommend their delicious home bakes – from their tasty brownie to their scrumptious cakes – everything they produce is top notch!
The cafe/restaurant has a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, which makes it the perfect place to chill out and enjoy some good food and good company.
The staff at Chimes are always very friendly and happy to help, and seem to always find time to humour me with a little chat.
You can visit Chimes from 9am to 5pm everyday. To find out more about Chimes and they’re catering service – which I have never tried but if it is as good as the cafe I’m sure its fabulous – on Facebook or via their website.
Chimes is less than a 15 minute drive from your stay at Carden Cottages, so you could even take your bacon roll to go and eat it while gazing upon our gorgeous lake that is only a tiny distance away from our cottages.
