My husband and I were passing through Carrbridge on the way back home. We were last here 2/3 years ago and vowed never to return after poor service and hearing a male constantly "swearing" both in the back and when dealing with other customers. However, after todays visit we were very pleased we stopped off here since it is now... More

There is a warm and inviting atmosphere and plenty of elbow room in this tea / coffee shop. Decaf tea and coffee were available and a splendid selection of cakes and scones were on display. I had the gluten free carrot cake - nice taste and a huge slice! They do more substantial eats too. As with many rural teashops... More

We drove through Carrbridge on the off chance of finding lunch and there was The Old Bakery. Compact but cosy and very welcoming. The soup was wonderful and the sandwiches really tasty. They also sell some unusual gift items We would definitely go again.

After a house fire in our village where the family lost everything, paige, the owner, offered the old bakery as a drop off point for donations of clothes, toys, etc. It's lovey to see our community spirit in action as we munch into our breakfasts, lunches and coffees. Thank you paige. ❤

My daughter had tea and a scone there was a choice of plain, fruit or cheese.The scone was delicious I opted for the Coffee and Honey... More

I particularly like this coffee shop for one simple reason. My Border Terrier was allowed to come in while they were making the coffee. Considering that it was raining outside this was especially appreciated. The staff were friendly and efficient and the coffee was excellent.

We called in on spec. Nothing flash about the decor, but an interesting range in the menu. The servings were tasty and substantial and the service was friendly. You can purchase a range of craft items here too if you are that way inclined.

Please don't confuse this place with the way it was before Paige took it over. There is no comparison. It should score 4 or 5 stars.
