Although there is other food available, we only had a late afternoon's break for coffee and cake. The mocha's and the latte's were good as were the cakes. Customers can sit inside or outside - we sat outside in the sun. Table service is provided and the staff were friendly.

After a Land Rover Safari we thought we'd try the cafe at the Rothiemurchus Centre for lunch. What was once the locale primary school, It looked incredibly busy as we waited a couple of minutes for a table. We decided to have the Rothiemurchus burger and a pot of green tea for two. We must say this proved to be... More

We've been here before many times but after quad biking today never been so thankful for a coffee and a bacon / Brie baguette in my life! The Cullen Skink is to die for and the coffee beautifully made. I can't recommend this place highly enough. Great staff too - always a pleasure

This is off the beaten path from our motor tour down A9, but so glad we found it. Beautiful setting and good food. Small cafe with indoor and outdoor seating, gift shop, lots of outdoor activities. Great place to stop for lunch!

Outdoor or indoor seating for lunch. Fabulous food! It's a bit cramped in the café - too many tables so we sat outdoors. Cafe uses Rothiemurchus produce wherever they can. It's pricey though but good.

Stopped in for lunch and we're so pleased with our experience. The food was incredible and the service was great. They were great at recommending drinks and very quick. Had the bacon brie sandwich and the burger. Both were incredible and portions were a great size. Especially for the price. Craving a repeat visit already.

The Druie takes its name from the burn(river) that rushes behind the restaurant and always seems in a hurry to carry clear, sparkling mountain water from the Cairngorms to the River Spey. We are open daily 9.30am - 5.00pm for locally roasted coffee, locally sourced tasty lunches,leaf teas and delicious homemade cakes, with a focus on dishes prepared from lovingly home produced beef from our pedigree herd of Highland cattle,our velvety venison from the ancient forest of Rothiemurchus and seasonal produce from specialist producers, served in a relaxed, friendly environment. Whilst enjoying your coffee or lunch at the Druie, you can enjoy the exhibition of local artwork which changes each month, especially selected by Ellie, who manages the Gallery at Loch an Eilein and is also a member of Creative Cairngorms.
