We have eaten there a few times now and it is always great. Gourmet pizza's, lovely salads, cakes, etc. Lovely courtyard to eat or have a drink in if the weather is good enough. Great service, always friendly and attentive. A real favourite of ours.

We are a Café, Gallery & Bar located in Grantown on Spey. Our goal is to offer a friendly welcome in a relaxing atmosphere. We are proud to be working with some of the area’s finest artists & artisans. We display unique and traditional hand made products found in our community & those close by.. We pride ourselves in using homemade, organic, seasonal & locally sourced produce for the majority of our menu & hope you can taste the difference. The High St Merchants cater to locals & tourists alike. The aspiration is to create a base & heart for the community where locals can meet & treat themselves to an coffee, cake, lunch or dinner or a wee drink. Two Thirsty Men, sits right bang next to us and its great to have a brewery on our doorstep. Come & taste ‘No74’, an amber ale & ‘Spey IPA’ a great hoppy IPA. We have a selection of Scottish Gins, Whisky & liqueurs. Sit by the fire or outside in garden courtyard, the warm inviting space lends itself to evening dining or a couple of drinks.
