“Good stop over on the A9”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Nice place to stop off the A9 heading North, we used to stop in Dalwhinnie, but now stop at Ralia. Can get very busy, but this is an indication of how popular it is. Good choice of food and drink.

“A lovely wee drop in cafe”
Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

In the middle of nowhere it's a little gem with free Internet and freshly made teas coffees and food. Places to charge phones with a nice atmosphere I liked it, although thought it was a little pricey.

“Quality and value”
Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

Great little cafe in a beautiful location. This is the only place I actually enjoy eating a sandwich which says a lot. We have been many times and contrary to a recent reviewer I think they are excellent value and quality and we have never found the toilets to be dirty and I pop in regularly.

Toilets smelly and not clean

“Worth going out your way for the bacon sandwiches here”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

A regular stop off for us on any trip north. It's just a nice distance north of the central belt so it feels right to stop for a coffee and snack. The bacon sandwiches are excellent and always hard to resist. Nice selection of coffees, teas and other snacks. Lovely location.
