Been here a few times for breakfast,or coffee and cake,always lovely and never disappointing.There is a lovely selection of cakes,the staff are friendly and restaurant spotlessly clean.Your only problem maybe tearing yourself away from the lovely view over the Cairngorms.

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?
