Good information

The cafe provided a good selection of leaflets on nearby attractions/things to do. There was a reasonable selection of food and it was well-priced. The staff were helpful and friendly.

There isn't a lot of choice on this part of the A9 so I'm glad this cafe was good. Given so little competition there would be every reason why standard would not be high, but standards were good. Coffee and food were great and prices were ok. Definitely will be stopping off here again

Lovely pave off the A9, a wee gem just off the main road with great coffee and a nice range of homemade food from tasty flapjack to soup and sandwiches. Cosy inside there's also a terrace and just next to it a wee shop selling lovely little gifts, etc. definitively worth stopping if you are on the A9!

No dislikes just a nice place for a stop on the A9. The home baking is very tasty and the coffee/tea excellent. they also let you charge your phone while you eat. There's also an area to walk your dog or just stretch your legs.

Great wee café on the A9, with a wide range of really nice food such as homemade soup and nice sandwiches like hot smoked salmon. The coffee was good too. I would give this full marks were it not for the fact that the toilets are very 'ski-resort' type toilets: downstairs, unheated and fairly basic. Still wouldn't stop me from... More

Best coffee stop on the A9. Lovely coffee, good soups and delicious well filled sandwiches (particularly crayfish and rocket and smoked salmon). Beautiful surroundings and views; attentive and coureous staff. Would never miss it on a trip north. Highly recommended.

Me and my son dropped in here last Friday 6th March on our way north. All we wanted was a drink and it was quite late in the afternoon. We found the place to be very welcoming and the prices reasonable. The views out of the windows were very good and I will come back when I have more time... More
