“Another great lunch stop”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Stopped here again for soup and cake, with coffee of course. Soup was vegetable, excellent flavour and warm crusty bread. Shared a slice of the summer fruits wheat free cake for afters. Very good value £13.80 for two people for a lovely light lunch. Re IannSuzanne's post, his mother runs the other Potting shed tea shop at Inschriach Nursery, equally good cakes but no soup and its closed over winter. The Kingussie one is open all year but shut on Tuesday and Wednesday. You can also buy the cake to take away or order whole ones with a day's notice

“The Potting Shed”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

The cakes were out of this world! We went to the one beside Inishriach which has a viewing area onto the local wildlife which includes red squirrels and woodpeckers. Beautiful location and interesting plants to buy.

“Great cakes, tea and coffee”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Something has gone wrong with this review. The potting shed referred to in most of the reviews is a cake and tea shop attached to a nursery near Aviemore in the Scottish Highlands. That Potting Shed is great with local native birds and squirrels on display from the back balcony of the cafe. The tea and coffee are good and a range of cakes is available. The nursery itself is worth seeing.

“Charming place and great Tea”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

the owner was friendly, and his sis makes great jewelry from broken pieces of the english pots and plates. very pretty. Also had nice homemade cards - I bought a necklace and a couple cards. A must to experience a traditional "culpa". And the lemon cake was to die for.

You must visit this garden centre and cake shop. Fantastic wild bird and squirrel watching whilst you eat the best cake ever!
