“This looks like one to come back for!”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Had tea and scones while travelling through malt whisky country. This was recommended at one of the distilleries and I can see why. Friendly, efficient and attentive service. Lots of choice. Very busy, which is a good sign! Clean. We'd definitely come back for a meal.

Thank you so much, hope to see you again when you are visiting another Speyside distillery. Malt Whisky festival is very popular in the first week of May - lots going on around Aberlour & Dufftown!

“Worst cappuccino I have ever tasted.”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 via mobile

Hope it was an off day. I had two sips of drink - the second tonsee if it really was that bad. The sandwich was good though.

Really sorry you had a bad coffee and that we are only just responding now, just registered!
I hope you said to a member of staff at the time as they would have easily changed it for you. Sometimes the coffee can be too strong and we have adjusted it so that is is not too strong or bitter. Hope you will try us again!

“Just been in for breakfast”
Reviewed 27 June 2013 via mobile

After camping for the night we needed a nice warm breakfast. Found taste on our way out of town after giving up with everyone else. Glad we stopped! Fresh tea with leaves, real coffee, fresh made scrambled egg, thick toast and perfectly cooked full Scottish. Good prices and lovely staff. Highly recommend

“Great for Lunch”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

We stopped in for lunch after the Aberlour Distillery tour and the sandwhichs and tea were just perfect. The owner was very friendly and I would recommend this establishment.

“Coffee shop with simple food.”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

WIth a title like fresh you would imagine everything is prepared on site. I had the prawn salad. Pasta in a salad always seems disappointing to me, the coleslaw came from a packet and the prawn mayonnaise similarly tasted from a package. The salad was lettuce, tomato and cucumber with dressing. It was a prawn salad, but not exciting or imaginative.

The coffee was very good as was the herbal tea.

Atmosphere was nice and it was clean and well decorated.

Apologies for not replying sooner as have only just registered. You are right to expect everything to be prepared fresh on site given the name and it absolutely is all made on site, we do not buy in coleslaw or prawn marierose, but make them ourselves as with the tray bakes, soups & main dishes.
We are sorry they were not to your taste and hope you will try us again soon!
