I love love love the Birdhouse cafe, i visit on a regular basis, the food both cakes and sandwiches a like are AMAZING, my favourite is the Briee FG which is amazing but all of the sandwiches and cakes i have tried have been spot on. sure cute decor, a real buzz and great customer service. It's a must when in Banchory.

“Food ok, Decor great.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

The service and decor were great, but the food was only average. Don't serve brown sauce on bacon ciabattas cause not everyone likes it.

“Good coffee & good service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Turning up just before closing time is generally a good test for a coffee shop. Arriving a few minutes to five we we were made very welcome. Friendly chat. The coffees were very good as was the gingerbread. Will definitely return. Highly recommended.

“Coffee and a smile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Our favourite coffee stop in Banchory. Lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Coffee always excellent, especially with a croissant in the morning. Would recommend the 'Pleased to meet you' chicken and chorizo sandwich for later on.

“Absolutely splendid!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

Absolutely splendid! I've been in to the birdhouse several times now and the staff are always very welcoming and friendly.The freshly made home bakes and cakes are always delicious and the coffee spiffing as well. The sandwiches are incredible and I would recommend the 'memes chicken' one (mango chutney,chicken and mozzarella with rocket leaves) as it was perfect in every way possible (especially the taste) and Compared to the other cafés in Banchory this one definitely stands out. Reasonable prices for such a small cafe/business but well worth the visit!
Only slight criticism would be that the rocky roads are too solid for me having sensitive and quite weak teeth...
