Great Homely Food

We had lunch after a long walk. It was simple, tasty and well-presented. The cakes looked wonderful; oh for my old waistline! Go as a couple or take the kids. You won't be disappointed.

We had breakfast here during a little getaway to Aviemore. Delicious freshly made scones were out of this world. My husband's coffee was the best he'd had all week. He even ordered a second cup to go. I had juice and tea...both delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommend!

I had the Bruschetta which was so flavorsome & tasty, while the rest... More

We called in here as a party of six after a lovely walk around Rothiemurchus. Shame there are few eateries around and we were all hungry, otherwise we wouldn't have stayed. Staff were distant and a bit rude when we walked in and we witnessed them being rude to two other people who walked in and dared to stand by... More

If you're on your way out or back from ski, climb, walk, bike or simply viewing. This place is a must for coffee and cake. Try the vanilla cupcakes. My wife did and I only managed a sniff! Dogs are welcomed outside, plenty of parking and a gift/ local food and goody store on site. It is away from Aviemore... More

Great wee cafe attached to a farm/gift shop. The latte was very hot. Which usually I would say is a great thing but the beautiful Scottish summers day meant it wasn't required. In the winter months I can see how it would be lovely.
