Description: We use some of Scotland's best local produce to create healthy, wholesome & interesting food with a Kiwi twist. 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. All the pictures are of our food - why not come in and sample our hospitality when you are in the area next?

Got in just in time as the queues are regularly all the way down the stairs. I now know why. The food is amazing, service excellent and there's a great range of options. Will definitely go back.

Just love this wee cafe! Visited on many an occasions, but never (yet!) For lunch or dinner. We have experienced a fantastic breakfast, with all family's tastebuds catered for. Mostly we have visited for cake and coffee. The choice is phenomenal, and the portions huge. All the food is homemade, fresh and locally tasty. This is a must do every time we come to Aviemore, highly recommended!

I've eaten here quite a few times now. Stopped off on our way North this evening for a meal and we were not disappointed. My Moroccan Chicken salad was fantastic. Great food, home baking and coffee. Friendly service. NB. Can be busy and you may have to queue!

If you love cakes and don't mind a queuing its well worth the wait.
We had lunch a couple of times and also bought takeaway food as well. The sandwiches were lovely and a large choice of drinks to choose from, not just the usual tea and coffee (lovely Smoothie and iced coffee!!) The place is small hence why it is always packed, the staff work very hard to keep up with the orders. Unfortunately if you serve good food it's going to be popular and busy. If you are impatient then don't go.

We've eaten here many times now on our Scotland holidays. We managed three times this holiday! Almost always very busy and all three times we had to queue on the stairs for a table despite going at a time which was previously slightly quieter. Well worth queuing for though. The staff never stop - they must be shattered when they go home. We usually go for the salads and this holidays had the Moroccan chicken salad, goats cheese salad and salmon salad. A small criticism was that there wasn't as much chicken on my husband's salad as on a previous occasion. I imagine different chefs do things slightly differently. We had cakes twice, the best ones being the double chocolate rum and raisin cheesecake which my husband gallantly ate despite the portion being huge and very rich, and the chocolate brownie which was deliciously gooey. Purchased some items from their small deli to take home to tide us over till our next visit later this year hopefully.
