I had a lovely slice of raspberry Victoria sponge cake here today and my friend had some blueberry maple cake. I will definitely come here again if I am in Banchory.

We often stop in by the Birdhouse during some of our cycles. Great place for coffee, breakfast and cakes, food is second to none and service good too.

In for coffee and soup. Usually not enough salt or flavour in soups. Decor odd. About 2 meters square, 1 metre drop of paper type decorations that tall people heads are covered in as they walk / stand at their tables. Odd place

Wow - great menu and something for every taste - hot or cold. Everything home made and fresh. Soups, sandwiches and cakes galore. Come starving - portions are on the large side. We will be back :)
