We offer hot and cold drinks plus light refreshments for a quick energy boost, all available during museum opening hours.

Whether you're warming yourselves after a trek through the hills, or popping in for tea and a blether, you're very welcome and we love to see you.

We have high chairs should you need them, and if you need any other accommodation to make your visit enjoyable, please don't hesitate to ask.

Dogs are also welcome in the café, though we ask that you are considerate during busy times.

We have a variety of seating available. There are benches and picnic tables outside with views of our fantastic scenery.  Indoors we have our cosy café space, warmed by our wood-burning stove in the colder months.


Developing our Café

We are very happy to announce that homemade cakes have returned to Glenesk Folk Museum! Thanks to our wonderful in-house baker Julie we are now able to provide sweet treats and unique creations throughout the museum's opening hours.

Coffee and tea are, of course, still plentiful. In September 2022 we started a partnership with Brechin coffee producer Maison Dieu Coffee Roasters to offer high quality, ethically sourced beans with a rich and wonderful flavour. We are working on getting our barista machine back in working order, and in the mean time offer cafetieres for a delightfully flavourful cupful.

As a small organisation, we do our best to be mindful of waste and do our bit for the planet. If you are looking for a soup or sandwich lunch during your trip up the Glens to visit us, Give us a call or drop us an email - with 24 hours notice we can provide you a delicious lunch made to order! Please remember that we are closed on a Monday. 

Thank you for continuing to support Glenesk Folk Museum and our local partners.
