“Delicious cakes, plus wildlife viewing”
Review of The Potting Shed - CLOSED

Reviewed 19 July 2013

We go to the Potting Shed whenever we are in the Aviemore area, primarily so that we can sit and watch the birds at the feeders, but a powerful secondary reason for going must be the delicious cakes. Difficult to pick out a favourite, but the cherry cake that I had on our last visit was excellent.

You don't see red squirrels very often, but there are always vast numbers of small birds and the occasional woodpecker.

The tea and coffee are also good.....

Lovely little corner of the world...nestled behind the pretty nursery garden. Homely and charming. Cakes very tasty...baked and served with care and integrity. Worth a stop-off for sure, especially on a sunny day. Two points: quality of coffee - disappointing...need to invest in a good machine and good beans. Also, for those who don't have a sweet tooth it'd be great to find some delicious savouries alongside the cake array.

A long way to go but great rewards after a drive/ride/walk through the woods from Aviemore you arrive at the nursery and then the fabulous cakes and tea in the Potting shed. It was just a Potting shed the first time we visited about 5 years ago but now a very busy cafe with stools to sit at and watch the birds and red squirrels as they devour the peanuts from feeders through the window. The cakes are to die for especially the rhubarb and raspberry but they are all amazing made with Norwegian flair.

Undoubtedly the best cakes ever. Could never find the unusual but lovely tasting flavours anywhere else. The window looking out onto the bird and squirrel feeders is stunning. Will return soon.

Coffee and cake with a viewing area for wildlife. Saw red squirrels, woodpeckers, siskin, great tit, coal tit and so many others. Lovely.
