We opened our doors in 2004 and have been gaining awards and accolades for our antipodean style coffees, delicious breakfasts, superb lunches & fresh home baking ever since. Our service is friendly & casual with a professional team from all over the world. The café offers excellent views of the Cairngorm Mountains - enjoy our balcony area during summer and the cosy log burner to sit by during the winter months.

“Never Disappoints!”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

We always eat in this cafe whenever in Aviemore, more than once given the chance, and for several years now. The service, menu and quality of food never disappoints. High quality, well prepared and presented, and a very interesting and varied menu. My husband had the all day breakfast this time and is still talking about the 'best breakfast he's ever had'! We have had a variety of cakes, snacks and meals, on our various visits, all are consistently excellent. Don't miss it!

“Great place for breakfast”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Went to the mountain cafe for breakfast whilst spending a couple of days in Aviemore last week. We went around 10.30 on Sunday and got a table straight away. I ordered the french toast with banana, berries, bacon and maple syrup. My wife ordered scrambled egg with crispy bacon on a muffin. Our large pot of tea for 2 arrived promptly. I found my breakfast to be delicious, even though it got a bit sickly towards the end, I'm not used to eating a sweet breakfast though. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her breakfast too. Not the cheapest of breakfast, but very nice and a good setting looking out onto the main street in town

“Great spot”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Popped in here enroute to Inverness - The Cafe sits above an adventure sport store and is staffed with a team friendly and welcoming waitresses (didnt see any guys at least).

They were pretty busy for a Monday lunchtime in early September, but we were quickly seated and ordered Seafood Chowder with Herb Scone and a Brie Panini with curly fries.

The Chowder and Scone were particularly tasty and I would recommend highly - Really enjoyed the fact that almost everything was home-baked/made.

“Excellent menu, especially for breakfast!”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

This place is excellent - the portions are HUGE, so do consider how hungry you are and whether it would be better to share! Can be very busy but it's worth it. Breakfast menu is fabulous, and so are the options for the kids. Well worth a visit.
