  • Lovely place to stop and sit for a cuppa and cake along the Deeside Way. Fabulous lemon and elderflower cake and a pot of earl grey. Pepped me to race on into Ballater.

  • Delicious, locally made cheese in tasty light bites at good prices. Fresh coffee. We had 2 toasties, mac & cheese and 2 coffees for around £20. Lovely forest walks around. Absolutely recommend. You can also buy a selection of their cheeses and a few other bits
  • Lovely little cafe with a great selection of cheese inspired food! Must try cheese toasties! We visited for hot drinks and food and to buy their cheeses. Once we got home we had an amazing cheese board and I couldn't pick my favourite! They were all so delicious it was by far our favourite cheese board we've made!!
  • Visited for brunch a few days back. The cafe is in a beautiful location, an ideal stop off before or after walks. A fantastic welcome from Maggie too. We both had the 5 cheese toasties and the courgette and Camembert soup. The toasties were phenomenal! Delicious cheeses oozing from between really good quality bread! They are accompanied by a generous dressed salad and potato crisps garnish. A perfect light lunch or brunch. The soup tasted really homemade, delicious and wholesome. Again served with good quality bread or, as I chose, a ‘cheese buttery’. Now, where to start with this very naughty treat! A bit like a dense scone, cheesy and can be eaten either hot or cold. The heat of the soup works really well to bring out the cheesy buttery flavours!! With 2 really good coffees we had a fantastic tasty wholesome brunch/light lunch served in a fantastic setting by Maggie and her crew. Unforgettable. Really recommended. **I’ve noticed with some of the other reviews people are confusing a salad garnish with a side salad.
  • Stop off on the way to/ from Braemar on the North Deeside Road. Great selection of artisan cheeses to be bought here. My favourite being Auld Reekie. Nice plate of soup and toasties, sandwiches etc here also.
  • The small kids playground made me think this would be a good place to visit with the kids but they have no kid friendly food at all. A plain cheese toastie would be ideal but since nothing is made fresh, you can’t ask for the mustard/spicy sausage etc to be left out. I’m really disappointed because we’ve bought cheese from their shop every year when we visit the area on holiday. There is very little indoor seating but the tables outside have big umbrellas for shelter.
