The Real Food Cafe
We are an iconic road side diner, chippy & cafe located on the scenic route no. A82 and on the West Highland Way. We're situated halfway between Glasgow, Fort William and Oban.
The Real Food Cafe is the ultimate refuelling stop for anyone travelling to the North West of Scotland or spending a day out in the Scottish Highlands or Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park.
Open 7 days a week throughout the day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, all year round, our food is always freshly made. We are proud to work with Scottish producers and when it comes to sourcing, we adhere to the highest standards.
Although best known for our award-winning fish & chips, our menu also includes cooked breakfast options, hot rolls, sausage rolls, soups, salads, burgers & traditional dishes found in chippies all over Scotland. Our menu also caters to vegetarians, vegans and we take special care of our gluten free customers.
Our baristas can prepare any coffee in seconds for you to enjoy with a slice of our homebaked cake or traybake.
We are dog friendly and on sunny days, our guests can enjoy our outdoor seating area. Anyone with an electric vehicle is also welcome to use the EV charger in our car park while taking a break at the Cafe.
The Real Food Cafe was established in 2005 by Sarah Heward from a former derelict Little Chef and since then we've become a shining example of a small, rural, independent business that is bucking trends and despite well-known external challenges is excelling at providing outstanding hospitality and a consistent service for hundreds of thousands visitors, regulars and locals, whilst also providing high quality long term career opportunities for the team.
Our business is more than just a cafe; we’re part of a broader community—of Tyndrum, Scotland, and beyond.
