“Fabulous coffee shop”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

Visit this great little coffee shop in Kingussie. It offers home made cakes and coffee or tea served in china cups. Now you can also get home made soup too. All delicious! Pick up some locally made jewellery - the ultimate recycling as they are cleverly crafted from broken crockery. Or beautiful wood chopping boards and wall displays made from locally sourced Ash.
Run by the son of owners of the Inschriach plant nursery it is a quiet oasis to enjoy lovely food and drink after a stroll round the town or a longer hike. A better bet for refreshments after visiting the Highland Wildlife park too. Excellent value for money and cakes can be ordered for taking home.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed 21 January 2013

This place is a gem and is deservedly popular with locals and visitors alike. The owner runs it on his own but has built on his experiences in other establishments, particularly his parents' nearby place which has squirrels and birds sitting by the window. Unfortunately the High Street branch does not run to this but in every other way it is its equal in high quality, home-made food and polite service. Though the cakes are the main draw you can now enjoy excellent soup to keep out the winter cold. Do make the effort to stop by and you won't be disappointed.

“Welcoming cafe, delicious cakes”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

Cakes are gorgeous, and range of teas is excellent. Really cheap too! Although we went on a rainy day in January, the cafe brightened up our visit to Kingussie.
