Probably one of the best lunches we’ve had for some time. Really friendly welcome. So nice to have owners with such enthusiasm for the food they create. If we were local we would visit all the time!

Warm welcome, very personal service which was quick, efficient and very friendly. Food full of flavour and somewhat exotic. Delicious! Great coffees and sweets. Well worth a visit, but as it is tiny, do make a booking! Packed when we were there, with people waiting,...More

Very small cafe in Torphins. The cakes were quite nice. The milkshakes were just ok. Coffee was fine but too hot. Service friendly. The best thing is the home brewed beer which was susprisingly very good.
