Everyone’s Welcome at Potarch Café

We create food that celebrates Ballogie Estate and local Scottish producers, while playing with dishes and flavours that the team have picked up from travelling around the world. 

 Our coffee bar is run by Thomas, who has a wealth of experience in the specialty coffee industry. He was Head of Coffee at the Allpress Espresso Roastery in Dalston, London, before swapping life in The Smoke for the fresh air of Scotland and making us the furthest north cafe you can find the Allpress Espresso Blend.
