The Phoenix Shop and Cafe

The Phoenix is owned by an innovative community partnership with hundreds of local people owning a share of the business. Other village attractions include a local money system, whisky barrel houses, natural sewage plant, eco-design housing, Universal Hall events and a beautiful natural landscape.

Located at the entrance to the famous Findhorn eco-village, the Phoenix has been serving the local and visiting community for over 20 years. Beginning life as a specialist new age shop the Phoenix has evolved over the years into a thriving community owned business. An award winning Food Store, full service Apothecary and Bookstore, crafts, gifts and music jostle together on shelves packed from floor to ceiling.

Celebrating the positive, the Phoenix store specialises in local, organic, Fairtrade, ethical and artisan foods and products, some of which can also be purchased by mail order.
 
Farmhouse cheeses, local organic whisky, local crafts and fairtrade chocolates fill the baskets of customers looking for an alternative to the supermarkets and shopping malls.
 
The Phoenix Café (formerly known as The Blue Angel) is situated at the entrance to the Universal Hall in the Findhorn eco-village community. Open year round, the café has both inside seating and a popular outside garden terrace area.
 
The café offers a wide range of snacks and beverages with an emphasis on fresh, local and organic ingredients. Croissants from a local French patisserie washed down with a shot of organic espresso add a continental flavour to village life. See their menu here.
 
Monthly exhibitions from local artists decorate the walls (also available by mail order) and crockery is from the nearby Findhorn Pottery. The café also functions as an evening café/bar for events at the adjoining Universal Hall.
