Great cafe just off the A9. Gift shop and toilets but the cafe is quick and very good for soup and sandwiches not to mention coffee, etc.

The Ralia is a great place to break the journey north or south on the A9 with fabulous coffee and great fresh food, If you know your coffee then you will definitely appreciate the effort they put in which includes roasting their own beans.

Myself and my partner found this gem on route up north. Fab that you can stop somewhere quickly on such a long road to use the facilities and grab a quick coffee. Maybe better sign posts as we almost missed it (thank goodness we didn't).

Best coffee and sandwiches on the A9. If home made packaged sandwiches were an art form, ralia have nailed it. I am up and down the A9 regularly and this is my favourite stop.

The coffee and tea are always ok, the toilets clean and it's a beautiful area. Nice views from here looking up Creag Dubh. They make the sandwiches fresh each day.

A wonderful filling breakfast sandwich with the best coffee on the A9 and always a smiling cheerful Highland welcome no matter how busy it is.

Just had the best soup ever at The Ralia Cafe. Sambar Dahl. Spicy lentil, that was thick and extremely tasty with a large chunk of the freshest tastiest bread. It's not the most solubrious place in the world but the food is very tasty
