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?

We decided to stop here for breakfast on our first day in Aviemore, and what a treat! The food was absolutely fantastic. I had the french toast with bacon, banana, berries and hot maple syrup. My boyfriend had an English muffin with scrambled egg and flaked, smoked slamon. Both plates of food were excellent, and extremely generous portions. I failed to finish mine, which is very unusual! The cafe was very busy at 10am, so there was about a 20 minute wait between ordering and getting our food but this was not a problem. Everything was so fresh that I would wait twice as long to have the same food again! Very highly recommended.

Looking for a breakfast in Aviemore, we saw The Mountain Cafe first, reckoned it looked okay but on the dear side, so toured the main drag to check out the alternatives. None appealed for one reason or another, and so we ended up back at square one - or base camp, if you like.

I ordered the full breakfast (£8.50), while my better half ordered the veggie breakfast (also £8.50). Both were good quality, non-greasy and presented well (mine in a full Scottish intrusion stack stylee), and the black pudding especially on the carnivorous version was smashing (from the local butcher Frasers, I was told). Skimped a bit on the toast (1 slice each), but both came with choice of tea/coffee/juice, with free refills on the coffee.

Service was friendly, and the place sits with a great view of the Cairngorms, so all good.

The one slight gripe we had was that the veggie breakfast was priced same as the meat-eater's version, which did not seem to represent good value - especially in comparison. Dropping the price of the veggie version by a quid or two would make it seem all the better value.

Mountain Cafe never ceases to impress. Great food using fresh, quality ingredients. Well worth paying just a little bit more than you normally might.
