Visited The Mountain Cafe on a glorious spring day, sat outside on the balcony and had the most delightful tea and cake. The choice of cake is remarkable and quality exceptional, I will certainly visit again .

Can I just go in and get a piece of cake to go or do I have to queue on the stairs for half an hour?

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?
