Very small cafe with quite a limited menu, but fine for a quick bite if visiting Rothiemurchus Centre. The Cullen Skink was lovely! Staff were very nice. It got very busy and they were a bit understaffed so looked stressful for them. Nice home bakes...More

Lovely staff, great food and very reasonable prices. Great range of sandwiches and cakes. Stopped in for lunch and the selection of food was good as well as a good selection of drinks. Nice little shop to explore next door.

We tried you again because we love sitting outside. As per other reviews, the staff not the friendliest. They always seem to ignore you first. Tables left uncleared whilst staff congregate behind the counter. The milkshake came from a box pre-made with ice in it?!...More
