Visited here after seeing it on trip advisor, unusual but quaint location. The menu is a little more exotic than your standard tea room, but the meals we had while there were both surprising & delicious! the staff were very friendly & efficient. I will happily visit again next time I'm in the area.

Seen this on trip advisor and was in the area anyway so gave it a little try - any excuse for a tea stop! We were so early we had to do a little drive round first. It may have been that we were first in but it was very chilly inside. Having said that the food and drink made... More

Saw the great reviews here first, and actually happened upon Platform 22 after getting re-directed from a different restaurant that happend to be closed. Our luck! We were not that hungry, and the selection from the savory menu is small...that said the fresh made celeriac soup and house made bread was delicious! Very filling, even my husband who was hungry,...

Greeted by big smiles the minute you walk in the door: by hospitality standards we’re on to a winner. This tiny place is steadily busy, and must easily push 30-40 covers on a daily basis. Not too bad for a café located outwith a high street hub of ample footfall. Blackboard menus are synonymous with cafes, always have been, always... More

We visited Platform 22 having read the reviews here on Trip advisor. I must say I was a little sceptical. It's not often you find anywhere that has 100% 5 star ratings, but we thought we'd give it a go ... It was a nice day for a drive anyway. Well, now I can see why it has achieved such... More

This place is a real Gem! It is a few miles out of Banchory but well worth the journey. Although fairly small (cosy) the quality of the food is excellent and the friendliness of the staff makes for a lovely visit. We went for lunch and I was blown away by the platter I ordered, really high quality food and... More

I've visited Platform 22 for a number of years - initially for NEOS when the café side was less prominent - and am still pleased to drop in every now and then. This was one of those days - a quiet Sunday afternoon drive via Torphins was the ideal time to stop. The coffee is good as are the cakes... More

This cafe is not in Banchory. It is in Torphins which is about 7 miles anyway. Been there twice in the past week and both times the coffee and scones were excellent. Significant improvement over a couple of years ago when I was last there. Also serves meals and drinks including wine, beer and scotch. On Wednesdays they have open... More
