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 cafe space, warmed by our wood-burning stove in the colder months


Developing our Café

Many of you will remember the café from years gone by, when it provided a large selection of hot and cold meals. This model became unsustainable, and was part of why the organisation closed in 2019 to reassess our approach and priorities.

While the organisational focus centres on the museum, we are still very eager to provide our visitors with good quality, hearty fare, connected to the heritage of Glenesk.

We are currently working towards this goal, most recently renovating our baking kitchen to make it ready and energy efficient. Getting this up and running will take time and resources, so we appreciate your excitement and patience while we rebuild.

In the meantime, you can help us by showing how much people appreciate a café in Glenesk by supporting what we currently offer. Every cup of coffee or Tunnocks Tea Cake not only contributes financially, but gives us solid information to take to potential backers.

We hope you enjoy your time with us, and look forward to sharing this journey with you.
