“Great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

Stumbled across this while searching for a tearoom near Aviemore. It's a little drive away (about 10 minutes south of Aviemore) but it was such a great find. The tearoom is lovely with a nice cozy atmosphere. We had the Lindt chocolate cake and it was amazing and the selection of tea is great. But the best part is the large windows for watching the birds and squirrels on the feeders, better than TV!

“Woodpeckers and cake !!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Walked from Aviemore to here and enjoyed coffee and excellent selection of fresh cakes too numerous to mention.The viewing area is busy but worth a wait to see red squirrels and woodpeckers alongside numerous other birds.

“Fantastic place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

I found this place by chance on a cold and wet day - I'm glad I did! It is on the road to feshiebridge, located across from a large car park. It is a great place to have a coffee and relax when you need a wee break. The staff were lovely, and the cakes were amazing!! Homemade and very delicious with excellent choice. The coffee was served in china cups and saucers, which was a nice touch!

They have a large window area where you can sit and watch the birds, and the red squirrels. I managed to get quite a few good photographs of the squirrels, so it's ideal for a camera buff! The atmosphere was great also, it is a very comfy homely place, and I can't wait to go back for a visit next year!!

A great place to spend awhile - close to Aviemore & Loch Eilean - tea, coffee, superb cakes, red squirrels and birds - what more can you ask for. Friendly and welcoming staff.

“Scrumptious cream cakes + Red Squirrels & birds!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Off the beaten track but this place is a little gem & well worth making the effort. Great place to take the kids (of all ages!) for a treat. Simple formula of mouthwatering home made cream cakes, tea, coffee etc. Unique feature is glass viewing gallery enabling you a close up of the wildlife - red squirrels and various very colourful birds (sorry, I am not a bird watcher so can't provide more details on the birds other than we did spy a woodpecker when there). It is pretty small & can get very busy (we were there school half term) and parking is limited, however, you shouldn't let that put you off as turnover is pretty quick.
