Whilst everywhere else we visited during our 4 day stay in Aviemore felt tired or touristy, this fabulous cafe had a wonderful selection of cakes and served a stunning breakfast. The only up-to-date place in town! Don’t miss!

Whilst we enjoyed our breakfast, I cannot justify nearly thirty quid for what we received (all day breakfast and granola). The price of a very small cup of flat white coffee at £2.70 is way too much - it was gone in 5 mouthfuls. Sorry,...More
