A very clean and friendly cafe with outside seating opposite the green. Lovely cakes and the freshest sandwiches and fillings. A pleasant place to people watch and recommended.

Visited this cafe every single day on our camping trip to Ballater - it was that good. Sampled the scones, Victoria sponge, coffee, tiffin, paninis, quiche, pasties, toasties... there wasn't much we didn't try to be honest! Everything was delicious, fresh and made from scratch on the premises. Staff were really friendly and welcoming. Will be making a bee-line for this place next time we're in Ballater.

We arrived in Ballater before 9 am and were delighted to find this cafe open and well stocked. Freshly baked scones were delicious.

Thanks for the review. We open at 7.30 because we understand that some people require an early breakfast or packed lunch for a busy day exploring Royal Deeside. Glad you enjoyed your scones. See you soon.

Thankyou
