Treat yourself to home-made ice-cream, coffee and cake at St. Mocha Café in Balmaha or its new sister cafe on the pier at Luss. The Luss venue is open from 9am to 5pm daily - check the Facebook page for details and opening times.
Did you know that the Maid of the Loch Paddle Steamer at Balloch has a great tearoom aboard, offering snacks and treats for all the family?
A great day out at the Scottish Maritime Museum's Denny Tank in Dumbarton must include a visit to the cafe (Mon-Sat, 10am -4pm).
Shop till you drop and relax in one of the many cafes, enjoy an ice-cream and more food options at Loch Lomond Shores.
Sample Scotland's Natural Larder
A visit to Luss is not complete without trying out the new Seafood Bar where you can enjoy fresh Scottish seafood in pretty surroundings, with a neat outdoor space too. Locally sourced Scottish produce from creative chefs is on the menu at the Loch Lomond Arms Hotel, Luss, and don't forget the Luss General Store, which often has samples of local products to try.
Weekends in and around Loch Lomond are ideal for family dining – how about Sunday lunch or afternoon tea at Knockderry Country House Hotel or the Summer Menus at the Cameron Grill, or Boat House Restaurants at Cameron House Hotel?
A day out or stay in the pretty area of Balmaha might include climbing Conic Hill, visiting the iconic Tom Weir statue followed by a meal at The Oak Tree Inn, where you can sample locally brewed beers and local produce straight from the kitchen garden.
You can sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine and some Spanish tapas at La Barca Spanish Tapas Bar and Restaurant - plenty of space inside too - or dine on delicious locally sourced produce from breakfast to dinner at the Riverhill Courtyard Restaurant and Bar in Helensburgh.
Helensburgh's Cattle and Creel Seafood and Steak Bar has plenty of delicious offers for dining for all the family, and the family-friendly Dumbuck House Hotel in Dumbarton offers tapas on a Monday and a tasty steak night on Thursdays plus lots more local offers via its Facebook page.
Delicious Drams and Craft Beers
Discover plenty of delicious locally brewed beers from Loch Lomond Brewery, or take a whisky distillery tour and a taste in the tranquil countryside setting of Glengoyne Distillery.
