We stopped for a breakfast after a friend suggested it. It was possibly the best breakfast we’ve ever had. It was busy which is a good sign but it was certainly worth the wait! The scrambled eggs and black pudding was sublime and the pancake’s magnificent!

Arrived at the very busy cafe (half term) and decided to wait for a table, Louise,front of house, offered us a pager (modern gizmo) so we could go shopping and be summoned when a table became available, it worked perfectly.The menu was creative and stimulating, and consequently hard to choose, I had the sweetcorn fritters which were full of flavour and Linda had the daily special a risotto which she thoroughly enjoyed.I was intrigued and impressed by the amount of effort put in to the menu for those with genuine allergies and fussy eaters.Don't forget quality good food takes time. If you want quick there's a Subway opposite!

By the time we got a table we had missed breakfast. Not a great veggie choice so I ended up with their sandwich. Two slices of bread with some crisps on the side .....£7. Way overpriced. My friend had suggested we go somewhere else but we'd already waited about 40 mins. Would I go back....no.....but their cakes looked good.

Went here recently for late lunch-early supper.Expectations were good as we had to wait on a table,so clearly popular.The reviews on the staircase on way up would back this theory as well.
Myself the wife and our young son were shown to our table.After a full 20 minutes and my wife stopping me from leaving we were offered drinks!! 5 minutes later they arrived and we ordered some food.2 steak flatbread and sausages for the wee man.It must have been at least another 20mins before our food arrived.
Now the room was full with approximately 30 customers all at various stages into their meal so I struggled to see the reason for any delay and was annoyed that there was no apology or explanation from the service staff during and after our meal.
The food here is modern,fresh and tasty, and locally sourced.The service however lets this place down.
45-50 minutes waiting for a can of juice and steak sandwich unfortunately puts us off going here again.

Stopped here for something to eat and drink as soon as we got to Aviemore. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Wonderful views of the Cairngorn mountains. Look to the ceiling and more items visible.
