We stopped at The Druie while on a driving tour. Our guide called ahead for lunch and they were ready for us when we walked through the door. Our party sat at a long table in the back which allowed us to take in everything the café had to offer. They have a nice menu, including soups, salads & sandwiches.... More

We stopped here for hot chocolate and cake on the way back to Aviemore after being out on the bikes all day. It was most welcoming. Although very busy the staff were polite and courteous. Chocolate brownie was delicious!

We stopped here for lunch after a wonderful experience of Rothiemurchus Clay Pigeon Shooting. We read the wonderful reviews, and yes... the Highland Beef Burger was the BEST we've ever had! But.... our server NEVER checked in on us. I just wanted a glass of water with my meal. I asked THREE servers for water, they all said... "Coming right... More

After walking Loch An Eilein, we treated ourselves to a lovely lunch of Cullen Skink and homemade soda bread. We liked the decor, the service and above all, the tasty food. The fire was lit and the atmosphere was very welcoming. There was a nice selection of cakes on display, but we managed to resist just about!

Rarely do I give a 5 star rating but we had an excellent lunch at The Druie. We had the slowed cooked vegetable risotto and the beef burger - both were tasty and of a high standard. We also had the chocolate brownie which was scrumptious. Service was excellent even though the place was full. My husband was told the... More

Loved this cafe. When we came in it was a 45min waiting list so got a coffee take away and went for a walk on lake nearby recommended by lady who made our coffee. When we came back there was still a bit of waiting but we decided to stay and wait for a table. It was so worth it!... More

Description
The Druie takes its name from the burn(river) that rushes behind the restaurant and always seems in a hurry to carry clear, sparkling mountain water from the Cairngorms to the River Spey. We are open daily 9.30am - 5.00pm for locally roasted coffee, locally sourced tasty lunches,leaf teas and delicious homemade cakes, with a focus on dishes prepared from lovingly home produced beef from our pedigree herd of Highland cattle,our velvety venison from the ancient forest of Rothiemurchus and seasonal produce from specialist producers, served in a relaxed, friendly environment. Whilst enjoying your coffee or lunch at the Druie, you can enjoy the exhibition of local artwork which changes each month, especially selected by Ellie, who manages the Gallery at Loch an Eilein and is also a member of Creative Cairngorms.
