Great stop but watch the stairs!

My friend and I had a lovely meal there on our way north to Sutherland last month. Food was excellent, as was service. Lots of variety in sandwiches. Soup was devine. The only thing that marred the experience was something that happened as we were leaving. There is a map of Scotland just... read more

After reading reviews stopped here on route to Elgin from Glasgow. Firstly the good points... Shop is nice and has a pleasant range of touristy things.

Good coffee, friendly service and not as frenetic as some places on the same road. Well worth stopping and good opening hours too.

A great place to stop, fill up and rest before making your way north or south. The food is good with a wide range of quality food and snacks available. We will be stopping again.

Perfect place to stop off the A9 on our way to Inverness--pretty wooded parking and picnic area, great sandwiches and baked goodies, if a bit crowded on weekends.

Might be our handicap, but we could not see what sandwiches or other food we could order, so we had to stand in the cue to ask first. Being disabled, that was no option, so we left.

Travelling from Glasgow to Ullapool, this was an ideal location to stop of, recharge and stretch our legs. The dogs had a nice walk along the path, the toilets were clean and the coffee was a good blend and not expensive. Would definitely recommend to break up any journey.

l stopped off here for a break on my way up to Lewis. It's a pleasant location just off the A9 and a nice reataurant with outside tables available. The staff were helpful and the prices reasonable. If you need a stop this one is recommended.

The Ralia cafe is located about halfway between Perth and Inverness a small local business serving coffee, cakes, biscuits, sandwiches and soup. Relaxing, clean and a quiet place to chill on your journey. Plenty of parking open until 8pm in summer.
