We always call in to Brown Sugar when we are in Ballater. The soups are excellent and the soup and sandwich deal is worth a try.
The soup selection changes daily and usually two on offer. If the Mushroom soup is on offer don't miss it's the best! My wifes favourite sandwich is the Bacon Brie and Cranberry she says it has never been beaten!
A great selection of home made cakes as well.
You can always find a lovely little gift to buy
The staff are always pleasant and smiling-a rare occurance in a lot of places these days..
