The Olive Tree Café is set in a stunning location above the River Findhorn at Logie Steading. Logie Steading is a special place for any visitor with endless things to see and do. During the summer months the outside courtyard is a popular place to sit and relax over a morning coffee, or later in the day, to enjoy a tasty lunch from the café in the sunshine. The café has a wonderful seating area both inside and out with a mezzanine area upstairs for relaxing whilst browsing over a newspaper or magazine. One of the strengths of Logie Steading is that all the businesses are individually owned and run by people who have a passion for their ‘trade’. Gill and Weller de Oliveira enjoy bringing their passion for good food to the café.

The café has a wonderful ethos of great food sourced locally and seasonally. Meat comes from MacBeths, the widely acclaimed butcher in Forres. Traceability is complete as MacBeth’s meat comes from their own farm just a few miles away. Free range eggs are also bought locally for all the baking.
Everything on the menu is homemade on the premises and the fabulous gingerbread, fruity flapjacks and chocolate brownies are all gluten-free. All other cakes are made with butter, not margarine, and you can taste the difference. There are also many vegan and vegetarian options available on the menu daily including a vegan soup and there is a children’s menu available for families that visit. All food is freshly prepared in the café in an environment that is welcoming and friendly.
As part of their commitment to good food, Weller and Gill are strong believers in the principals of the “Slow Food” movement. This can mean that the food takes a little longer than in some “fast food” cafés but it is always worth any wait!
