Good food - but not worth the wait. This place ways seems busy no matter when we go - testament to the quality of the food and the location no doubt. Problem is that they have no way of taking your name or giving you a number so you just have to stand on the stairs and wait your turn.... More

What an asset to the centre of Aviemore! The Mountain Cafe provides excellent food and home baking at reasonable prices in a cosy Cafe, full of character. The breakfast is delicious. We always make a point of visiting at least once on our frequent visits to Spey side and we are never disappointed. It is always beautifully cooked and presented... More

We always make a point of coming here during our weeks holiday in the area. Never had a bad meal. Todays breakfast was just the start we needed. The French toast with fresh berries is delicious...or just go on a calorie blowout with a full scottish..the hash browns were gorgeous today

Whether you're looking for coffee and cake or a delicious lunch this is a great place to eat. The coffee is great and the home baking delicious. Highly recommend the venison burger for lunch. Can have a bit of a wait at busy times but its well worth it.

I suppose the title is a credit to its quality. We would have liked to have gone again the day after but the queue was just too long. Good food, big portions and reasonably priced.

In my previous review in November I commented on there service, well big improvement, back to their best. The food as ever is excellent, I would expect nothing less from them. Service was excellent, tables cleared immediately they became vacant. Staff seemed to be more relaxed. My only observation is still no Wi-Fi, I know that the owner has commented... More

My husband and I stopped at the Outfitter shop to inquire about walks in the area. As we were leaving we asked if they could recommend a cafe to grab a quick bite and, low and behold there was one right upstairs! Well, I couldn't imagine what we were getting into, a cafe above an outfitter store? But wow, truly... More
