“The best cakes anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2012

The original Potting Shed still exists at Drakes Nursery on the back road between Kincraig and Aviemore and still has the nicest cakes together with a great wild bird viewing gallery, but this off-shoot in Kingussie is far more convenient and just as disastrous to a diet.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2012

After visiting out of season last year and missing my chance of cake at the original location, I have been keen to return and was delighted to see there was now a shop in Kingussie. What great cakes. The peanut butter cake was great, thank you for finishing it so quickly so I could have a slice.
A lovely place to watch Kingussie go past.

“Fabby cakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2012

A tiny tea/coffee shop in Kingussie serving the most amazing cakes. All you can have is tea or coffee with cake but its well worth going.

“Fab Cakes, Coffee & Tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2012

It's run by the son (Philip) of the folk who have the wonderful Potting Shed Cafe & Nursery at Inshriach so it's the same fab cakes that you have there - the difference - well this ones in Kingussie High Street so no birds or red squirrels but if you are in Kingussie it's the place for Cake.
We love both places - we tend to visit Kingussie on a Sunday for our weekly fix.
