We enjoyed fish and chips for lunch but the other dishes coming out to neighbouring tables looked great too. Friendly service and decent value.

A lovely cafe well worth the drive out from Inverness for a visit. Set in lovely grounds with a playground on the premises so would be ideal for the summer. Good food and cakes

We stopped in with a tour group of 7. we had 3 family groups and wanted to get takeaway sandwiches to take back in the bus. Unfortunately we didn't seem to be welcome and 2 families were served while I was told to wait and then ignored for the next 20mins. All the orders had come out before they would... More

We've been here a few times now and enjoy its location out of Inverness. The food is always good but not cheap. The play park is ideal for young families

We have often eaten at the Dairy Cafe on our regular visits to the Highlands, and used to really look forward to it. We were happy to see that the menu choices have been expanded. Sadly this time was not an enjoyable experience. My wifes scarambled egg on a bun was the smallest serving I have ever seen, and the... More

On recommendation stopped here for lunch while on a road trip and it did not disappoint. Actually my main disappointment was that I wasn't hungry enough to eat some of the more interesting menu items and only had space for soup and a cheese scone, which were delicious. Well placed for a break along the A9 and worth the very... More
