Fresh home baking, delicious coffee and if the sun is out and you can sit outside it’s beautiful. Staff are excellent and so friendly. Lovely part of the world

Very relaxed with helpful staff. Good value for money. Recommended. The scones are particularly nice. Sit either inside or out depending on the weather. Always great after a walk or activity.

We enjoyed a late cup of tea one afternoon and returned the following day at the same time, almost an hour before the advertised closing time, and found the cafe in the process of being closed for the day. This wasn't a problem for us....More

Good coffee and good cakes, the salted caramel sponge was particularly good this week. The outside terrace in the sunshine is hard to beat too.

Description
The Druie takes its name from the burn(river) that rushes behind the restaurant and always seems in a hurry to carry clear, sparkling mountain water from the Cairngorms to the River Spey. We are open daily 9.30am - 5.00pm for locally roasted coffee, locally sourced tasty lunches,leaf teas and delicious homemade cakes, with a focus on dishes prepared from lovingly home produced beef from our pedigree herd of Highland cattle,our velvety venison from the ancient forest of Rothiemurchus and seasonal produce from specialist producers, served in a relaxed, friendly environment. Whilst enjoying your coffee or lunch at the Druie, you can enjoy the exhibition of local artwork which changes each month, especially selected by Ellie, who manages the Gallery at Loch an Eilein and is also a member of Creative Cairngorms.
