Prior to last weekend, we always ended up at the same cafe whenever we were passing through Ballater. However, on this occasion (and thanks to TripAdvisor), we decided to give The Bothy a try. We were very glad we did.
Lovely sandwiches and toasties accompanied by a tasty little salad ( not just your bog standard lettuce & tomatoe, this one had strawberries, black grapes and yellow peppers too) and a few crisps on the side. Although we'd fancied a plate of soup, the two on offer didn't appeal ( I always think it's a good idea to have one choice that's a "normal" soup i.e. not too unusual and sometimes wish restaurants would get back to basics when it comes to soups)
Never mind, the piece de resistance was the cakes. Someone clearly knows how to make a sponge! Coffees also very good. Would definitely return here. Oh, and by the way, the staff remain welcoming and friendly despite being very busy. Happy to recommend.
