Great cafe, ideally positioned in the middle of the village. We stayed locally for a few days and visited again for lunch, we like to on each trip. The menu is varied and all meals/snacks were tasty and well presented.

OMG sooo delicious (I’m not a fan of veggies overall) but...the way was made …. So tasty Friendly team!More

Great place for a full breakfast sitting next to a wood burner! Couldn’t fault anything about the place.

Great COVID-19 practices with signage, masks etc adhered to. Friendly, charming atmosphere, loved the outdoor table space! Staff are super lovely and welcoming. My partner and I sat indoors and tucked into a wonderful English breakfast, saw the local butcher delivering meat so you know...it’s good quality! Food was delicious as well, and great value for money. Treated ourselves to a bunch of traybakes after from their cake stand (with a plethora of choice). The Malteser slice is the best traybake I’ve ever bought and that’s saying something!! Will 100% return if back visiting Drumnadrochit.More

We passed the Deli on the road to Urquhart castle decided to come back for lunch after our visit to the castle. Lovely place inside all tables had bottles of gel on them. I had baked potato with haggis and cheese my husband had baked...potato with Chili. We both thought our baked potato's were lovely and soft. Our children had toasties which they enjoyed. My daughter is quite fussy but thought the deli was lovely. The toilets were lovely and clean.More

Back in the area for a short break and decided to visit again (previous visit in July) booked ahead of our visit, tables spread out well and good procedures being followed. We ate inside this time and ordered more meal style food rather than soup...and panini. All dishes were well presented and tasted fantastic - nice home made food and well worth a visit. Again we shall return if in the area.More

Friendly, efficient service, something for everyone from panini to a hot meal, baked tatties, sandwiches & soup to salads. The best goats cheese & beetroot salad I have ever eaten! Tasty, well presented, plentiful, just yum! Drinks reasonably priced & great to have local beers...on tap. We were controlled today (as eating out this evening) but the tray bakes & cakes inside looked divine! You do have to book to eat inside, where it’s cosy thanks to a log burner. Outside having arrived on spec was good, we feasted our eyes past the Drumbuies to Cnoc SnataigMore

This is a cafe just off the main road. Parking is further up the road which is also free. The time we were there, it was only outdoor seating and so there was a 10 minute wait for a table and it was table service...only. This is a bakery/cafe but all the different cakes were all inside and we were not made aware of this after we ordered lunch, which was a shame. Service was a bit slow but we were in no rush. Food was very good and the sticky toffee pudding was excellent.More
