Overview

Platform 22 is a family run pottery gallery, featuring our own pottery by ceramicist Emma Pattullo and a licenced coffee house in the pretty Deeside village of Torphins. Recently we have become a micro-brewery making small batches of real ales, which are available both in house or buy to enjoy at home later! Every Wednesday from 10am to 2pm in the Platform 22 forecourt we host Torphins Market. Scotland's only weekly outdoor farmers market that runs throughout the year, promoting local business, local produce and local enterprises too. Wherever your journey takes you pull in at Platform 22 and discover the "Heart of Deeside".

Very small cafe in Torphins. The cakes were quite nice. The milkshakes were just ok. Coffee was fine but too hot. Service friendly. The best thing is the home brewed beer which was susprisingly very good.

Interesting wee place - 'wee' being the operative word. Service wasn't bad and food and drinks were fine for the price. Nothing special though to be honest.

Good afternoon saucerutherland, Thank you for taking the time to review Platform 22. I have not really been sure how to respond, because of course I'm totally bias and think we are pretty special for an interesting "wee" place! ;) Heyho!

What a glorious selection of home baked cakes. My dark chocolate stout cake was a real treat of sweetness, stickiness and - most of all - CHOCOLATINESS! Lovely coffee and friendly staff. Excellent!
