On the way back we stopped off in Tyndrum for some lunch at The Real Food Cafe before embarking on the last couple of hours of our journey home.
This is exactly what The Real Food Cafe is designed for, a pitstop with excellent food where you stop either on the way to your destination, or on the way back – and they deliver on this perfectly.
First thing to know – it gets busy. You may need to queue a little.
That’s ok, good things are worth waiting for.
The menu is made up of lots of things you want to eat on a long journey – breakfast rolls, burgers, fish and chips, and cake.
We both opted for the snack size Fish and Chips as the previous evening had seen us get through three courses and a whisky tasting!
The fish was really tasty having come fresh from the fryer, with a nice squeeze of lemon, and a cold glass of in bru – you can’t go wrong.
Here’s a photo of some of the other food from the very willing assistant manager (I’m pretty sure he was the assistant manager, if he’s not, I’ve just given him a justified promotion!)
The Real Food Cafe reminds me of our favourite motorway services, Tebay. They understand their market, and everything they do is with their customer in mind – and what they do is a lot of simple things very well.
Here are a few things I want to highlight before I talk about cake…
Our four legged friends are catered for…
So are those that are gluten free…
They’ve won loads of awards….
Their toilets are twinned with ones in Malawi.
And so from crap to cake (sorry!)…
The Real Food Cafe has A LOT of cake. Everything from the Rainbow Cake featured at the top, to the Red Velvet Cake above, to these innovative Scotch Creme Eggs below!
Unfortunately we weren’t able to squeeze any cake in, BUT, how good does our takeaway box look!
