We arrived at the café to find a small queue but decided to wait and we were not disappointed. Although at a glance the menu is a little pricey it is definitely worth it! The food was fresh, delicious and there was lots of it!...More

Met a work colleague for a quick cuppa and a scone. Staff very friendly, baking is out of this world, lovely pot of tea and of course, the most breathtaking views of the Cairngorms. Fairly reasonably priced too. This little gem is a must!

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?
