Platform 22 is a family run pottery gallery & licenced coffee house in the pretty Deeside village of Torphins. The gallery features our own pottery by ceramicist Emma Pattullo, art & craft kits, books and locally sourced products throughout the year. The coffee house offers reviving coffees, teas and hot chocolates accompanied by our delicious home bakes and tasty lunches too. 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".

Easily the best tea room in Aberdeenshire West and our local favourite. Emma and David have crafted a super friendly and relaxed atmosphere here in the heart of Royal Deeside. The food is both inventive and delicious and the cakes are simply to die for! There are homemade beers-a-plenty but there are also an impressive selection of non-alcoholic beverages for... More

Visited twice during our visit to Royal Deeside. Emma the owner was very friendly and welcoming. She has made a great job of decorating and furnishing as very small space. There is a good selection of hot and cold drinks and interesting meals. Ended up purchasing some of the delicious home brew beer. Unfortunately dropped a bottle on the way... More

Thank you for the lovely review (rather blushing now!!) and I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed your visits to Platform 22. We hope next time you are visiting the area you'll pop in again. It was such a shame the weather was so dramatically stormy for the Torphins Market, but as always we keep going and I hope... More

Platform 22 is a wee gem of a place. The owners and staff are top notch and provide an eating & drinking experience second to none! A friendly, relaxed atmosphere, indoors or out under the Cherry trees. There's a wealth of choice in quality teas & coffees and the 'all-singing-all-dancing' hot chocolates that my husband favours! Deliciously different artisan choices... More

We happened to stumble upon this place by sheer luck. We were driving through and decided to pop in for a coffee. Unfortunately we had already had lunch, which was a pity as the food looked amazing. We did however, have a cake with or coffee, both cakes were great and presented so well. Our little girl had a picnic... More

My partner and I went up to this place to escape the usual cafes in the city, and we were not disappointed! All three staff persons were welcoming, and our food was served quickly... We were lucky to get a boxed seat, which, on Valentine's day, was quite cosy and intimate! The decor was up to our liking, with little... More

Platform 22 is unique and Emma and David the owners are brilliant - always friendly! They also run a wonderful market on Wednesdays with fresh fish, butcher, veg and other local produce. One of the best places around!

What a great find. A really lovely little cafe with delicious home made food and delightful friendly staff. There is outdoor seating which is great for dog owners and we were lucky to visit on a lovely sunny Sunday and have lunch outdoors. The menu is full of really interesting choices.
