Needed a coffee on our way down the A9. A busy cafe with quick service. On the 1st floor above the toilets. Small gift shop.

We saw the sign for "Ralia Café" from the main road and pulled in hoping for lunch, but it's not really a café. They have coffee and soup, and some packaged sandwiches but we wouldn't have stopped if we knew they didn't really have food....More

We stopped here for a coffee on the way to Strathpeffer. We had a cappuccino and a latter coffee with shortbread - both were very good. It is just off the main road and handy fro a stop off.

It's not the most palatial place but it's very welcoming and a warm place to stop off, though the toilets are not the best, but the food and drinks are simply the best. Great place to stop and just off the A9.

Stopped here on a snowy day for a hot drink and something to eat. Friendly polite staff and lovely views. Homemade sandwiches looked awesome. Will make this a regular stop on our frequent journeys between central Scotland and the far north.
