Basic and simple food, but done as well as can be done. I would always stop here over any other roadside cafe on the A9, a local institution.

On route north for a golfing weekend the lads needed fueling for the golf and beers ahead. It was suggested we stop for a big breakfast at Ballinluig and we weren’t disappointed. Top notch food in a great roadside restaurant. Well priced in great surroundings.
