Rustic, setting, amazing Scandinavian style cakes, teas and coffees served in china cups. Seasonal crafts and decorations on sale as well as alpine plants. Viewing gallery to see abundance of wild birds and red squirrels while you tuck into your cake.

we came here for coffee and cake as have been before and the cakes are awesum. We were treated to not only lots of birds to watch on the feeding table but several squirrels, we sat watching them for ages. The cake was great as usual I love the cream and peanut cake.

Not only do they have the best cakes, while enjoying them you can watch the Red Squirrels and wild birds through the large viewing windows. On your way out you can buy your plants.

This place was a delight! We enjoyed every minute of our hour or so long stay and were lucky enough to have our seats by the huge viewing window. This affords fantastic close up views of numerous local birds and much to our excitement a red squirrel! If you're even luckier, you may get a glimpse of a pine marten... More

What a way to spend an hour or so in the Aviemore area, especially on a poor weather day...Great coffee (or tea and other soft drinks) and a wonderful selection of home made cakes. I am not a cake fan but couldn't resist trying a slice of the chocolate cherry - delicious. Then we sat on the 'lookout bench at... More

The potting shed serves the most beautiful cakes and while enjoying them you can watch the red squirrels and a variety of birds in the feeding area - a lovely way to spend the afternoon! My children loved it and we recommend the peanut and Lindt chocolate cake, which is fantastic!

Hidden gem of a tearoom with wonderful selection of beautiful homemade cakes, some quite unusual too. I had strawberry and rhubarb sponge. Little tight for space but only as it's so popular! Amazing bird and red squirrel watching from back room, coming right up to the tailor made high stools and panoramic windows.

Fantastic, authentic tea room with the most amazing selection of mouth-watering cakes. Puts other local cafes to shame! Well worth the 3 mile drive out of Aviemore to visit this amazing place, and maybe watch the red squirrels while having your tea and cake.

This lovely tea room is tucked out of the way in the beautiful Cairngorms. Busy it is, by those who know, but by no means frantic. The cakes are fantastic. Superb choice and plenty of them. Good portions and washed down with a excellent coffee or tea. But I guess the highlight of the whole experience is to sit in... More

Lovely little cafe- gorgeous cakes, tea/coffee and amazing wildlife sightings! Just what is needed after a day's walking. Staff are pleasant and there is a wide variety of cake. We saw lots of birds and red squirrels from the window. Always popular. Note: No lunch offerings- just cake and more cake!
