I usually stop at Dalwhinnie for tea & toilet when on A9. I've seen the Ralia sign but never stopped until today. Ample parking, minutes off A9. Clean & tidy plus the tea was good. I will stop again.

We stopped off on our tripNorth up the AP we had a cup of coffee which was good, the place however needed a bit of paint to freshen it up. It is however ok for breaking up the journey.

I always swing by the Ralia Cafe when I'm heading up from Edinburgh, Decent sandwiches, great soups, good coffee. I'd go every day just to get a smile from the beautiful bee woman if I didn't live so far away!

Only 3 sandwiches left by 2pm. All egg! Very limited selection of food in general, so all adults in our group had soup and the kids limited to biscuits. Toilets horrendous and dirty. Worse than most public toilets. Would only revisit in an emergency.
