Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I really wanted a coffee and with everything else closed at 3pm couldn't believe my luck that this nice Cafe was opened. I also was able to get some local whisky ice cream which I had with my delicious coffee and wonderful service from the...couple who run (and I expect own) the Cafe. Very nice people and I admit I happily switched from take away to dine in.More

Fantastic little coffee shop in Dufftown serving a very good selection of coffee, hot chocolate and tea, delicious cakes, toasted sandwiches and panini as well as soup. The coffee is excellent and the hot chocolate variety is amazing. Warm welcome from Alison and Mark who...are also knowledgeable about the area. Vegetarians and vegans are well catered for which is a big plus. If you are in the area, pay them a visit you won’t be disappointed.More

We were looking for a light lunch after walking up Ben Rinnes. The place was empty when we came in, a bit strange in the middle of the tourist season. We had paninis and sandwichs, not bad but not much taste. Then cakes, same impression....It seems run by a couple, who is very friendly. Overall not bad but was disappointed.More

My wife and I stopped off here after a successful climb of Ben Rinnes last Sunday. A ‘Coffee’ was well needed! Situated in a beautiful part of the country, the ‘Glassworks’ had a real localised feel to it and the two workers (possibly owners) were...polite and welcoming. Inside, the layout was simplistic but promoted the local area amidst walls filled with portraits of animals and Highland scenery. The cafe was small but quaint. We ordered a ‘Flat White’, a ‘Mocha’, a ‘Cheese Scone’ and a slice of ‘Victorian Sponge’. No complaints with any of the items bar one minor issue - my cake had a ‘Lemon Jam’ which I wasn’t too keen on. Personal preference only, everything was baked to a high standard. We recommend this business should you find yourself in the area - definitely worth a visit after a bit of hill climbing!More

Lovely welcome and fantastic coffee, better than Costa by a mile. Had a tasty panini and some lovely coffee cake. It also had lots of gorgeous crafts and artwork to choose from. It had a great atmosphere and is popular with the locals too. Well...worth a visit.More

While visiting with my family we just happened upon this delightful place whilst walking round the town. Very inviting place with lots of nice crafts on display.

Having read all the glowing reviews I was really looking forward to coming here to hopefully buy some of the crafts and enjoy some coffee and cake. Instead, despite clearly wearing my face mask exemption card ( due to several medical reasons that I would...have been happy to explain had their approach been less like treating me like a lepur) I was told I could not come in as they have vulnerable customers ... presumably that would be the two unmasked ladies sat having tea? I too, am vulnerable and am particularly sensitive and careful about social distancing etc, i could have also pointed out under Scottish laws they cannot refuse entry but I was so shocked at how rude they were I would not have wanted them to have my custom so sadly a very negative experience for me and cant recommend... especially if you are exempt from wearing a mask!More
