“Better than average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

Situated above the Active Outdoor Sports Shop it has nice picture windows overlooking Strathspey Valley and with views to Cairngorms. Range of local foods, snacks and mountain classics like tartiflette. Coffee seats or tables and chairs inside and out - worth a visit.

“Active Cafaidh - don't drive by - stop and try”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Recently discovered this wee gem on the outskirts of Aviemore. Relaxed atmosphere, freshly prepared food, great views and entertaining DVD's playing. Interesting magazines on hand to browse while chillaxing with a latte. Today I had a warm goats cheese bruschetta, daughter had a mozarella, tomato and pesto ciabatta, husband had a cheese and ham panini. All beautifully presented and delicious. Good selection of cakes and coffees too! Give it a go...we have changed our allegiance.

“Just a coffee and scone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

Called in at this café on the recommendation of our daughter. She said that the scones were MASSIVE. She was not wrong. Called in just after 11am had tea/coffee and scones. Could not eat anything more until tea time. Do not go in there unless you are hungry.
