We love love LOVED this great cafe, visiting it 3 times during our week in the Highlands. They made the best lattes and their homemade soups and scones were absolutely lovely. What we liked best was the incredibly warm and inviting sunroom in the back where we could check our email while enjoying a coffee or some lunch. What's even better is that the room looked out into a beautifully landscaped back garden with a large bird feeder that attracted a lot of interesting birds! The owners were so nice and remembered us each time we came back, and we cannot forget to mention the fact that they have not only wifi for cafe customers but also a normal desktop computer which you can use for £1.50. This was a huge lifesaver for me, as I had to catch up on work email but our holiday house did not have internet access. As the previous reviewer noted, their gift shop was absolutely many steps above the average gift shop for the area, as the selection was indeed unique and worthy of a browse.

We decided that Keeper's Kitchen--and Newtonmore--were the highlights of our week in the Higlands, and we cannot recommend this lovely cafe more highly!! An absolute must if you are travelling through Newtonmore and are looking for a warm welcome and a quality tea/coffee or lunch!

Fast becoming our favourite place for latte & home-made cake (rocky road is ace) or home-made soup & sandwich. The combination of lovely owners & staff that make you feel so welcome, excellent coffees, the just lovely home baking then the lunch food make it the best place in Newtonmore for Morning Coffee or Lunch or Coffee & cake in the Afternoon. The menu is always changing with different soups & sandwich fillings, different cakes - but the fresh scones are just that from the oven and the rocky road (did I mention that it's fab). We cannot recommend it enough.
The Gift Shop area is full of good quality items - not the usual tourist themed rubbish - very nice Harris Tweed bags & things, photographs are all by the in house photographer and all very good - we are having 2 for our Sun Room.
It's popular with locals (like us) and tourists
