Delicious sandwiches, soup and side salads. Clearly prepared freshly each day with a nice variety of specials. Coffee excellent. Very good service and accommodating of us with our toddler. Would highly recommend.

This place was a fantastic find! The inside is So unique, super friendly staff and the cakes were out of this world. We had the white chocolate & raspberry cake and the lemon drizzle.....both were so tasty. Will be back again soon!

Great premises, very nicely presented & fabulously stocked with books. The cafe is downstairs & provides all anyone could expect. If you are in Aberfeldy, find it and enjoy.

Stopped here while in Aberfeldy on the way to Kenmore. Nice combination of book shop and cafe. Try the expresso with condensed milk. Mmm!

Tea and fancy coffee was needed on this snowy day and The Watermill was the best place to go for it. Lovely atmosphere and delicious baked goods ... we will be back!
