We visited for breakfast when on holiday in aviemore. I've been a couple of times before but wanted to introduce my husband to the place. He has a dairy allergy and they catered well for him. He had a full breakfast, I had avacado &...eggs on toast and our daughter had the kids breakfast. I was disappointed that they no longer did their vegetarian breakfast as this was my fav, but I still enjoyed my avacado toast and added a couple of sides instead! Server was a little grumpy but overall we had a lovely breakfast, and nice coffee too. I visited the next day for take away coffees and a lovely cheese scone and was served by a lovely friendly lady. Would recommend this place - best breakfast in aviemore by miles.More

Lovely freshly prepared lunch: Cullen skink with cheese scone and my travelling companion had a cheese burger which he reported to be excellent. Nice ambience and the staff were attentive and made us feel welcome

food was delicious the staff very friendly not to mention they have a very cute little dog. The food was fast and plenty of vegan options to choose from as well as meat. We had the kids vegan breakfast and pancakes and both were amazing!...Best vegan breakfast i have had in a long time the tofu was amazing :)More

Had a breakfast roll there a couple of times over Christmas period, very expensive and not a lot in it compared to other places locally over £1.00 a roll more for less filling. Not happy

We stopped here on our way home from our holiday in the Cairngorms after reading other good reviews. This was the best veggie breakfast I've had in a long time!! There was loads of choice, the food was great and the whole place has a...lovely feel. We will definitely be back. Huge thanks as well to Richard and Charli. My little girl was really upset after she left her favourite teddy at the cafe. I got in touch and they posted it back to us straight away. Thank you 😊More

The worlds most uncomfortable chairs. Bolt upright with a bar stabbing into the back and no lumbar support. Breakfast stops being served at 11.50. No full cooked after that. Yet the lunch menu has breakfast rolls, with all the same items. But they won’t serve...it in the breakfast format. Strange… The cafe is upstairs in a tourist shop, which is nice enough.More

Rating and reviews made it promising but could see bubbles on my coffee and knew the coffee wouldn’t be great and it wasn’t. Egg and hash brown roll was ok. Thought I’d found a gem as it’s hidden away. Maybe stay hidden!!!

Stopped for a bite of lunch when heading North. Found Route 7 on a Google search for lunch in Aviemore. Located in an industrial estate. Must admit to having some initial problems locating it. Eventually found it above a furniture store. Found the staff to...be very helpful and cheerful. Food and coffee quickly ordered and served. Both very nice indeed. Thank you all.More

We came here twice during our 3 days in Aviemore as it was so good. Once for lunch and had a great deal of Soup & Sandwich for £7.95. The soup was really large, hot and tasty, and the coronation chicken sandwich was huge, on...lovely fresh bread. It was so much that I had to take one of the sandwiches away for later in the day ! The second visit was for breakfast and was had the pancakes and french toast. Both were amazing, and we've never had so much maple syrup ! The french toast came with blueberries, raspberries, banana and bacon !More

We had breakfast a couple of times here as it was close to our AirBnb. A little hidden away inside a shop. The first time we went the food was brilliant - perfectly cooked full breakfast. I was a little disappointed the second time, as...I got a cooked breakfast again but it just wasn’t as good - everything just a little over cooked - that said it was still nice, just not brilliant. Service and prices were all goodMore

Sunday morning breakfast was excellent! Well made full Scottish and very well presented. Cappuccino was also the nicest I’ve had in Aviemore.

Although the Cafe is not technically pet-friendly, if you speak to the staff they can either find you some sweating downstairs in the shop area. Alternatively there is some outside seating if the weather is compatible.
