Homely and friendly with great choice

We arrived for a late breakfast, but not quite ready for lunch. Choices gave us both options to keep cravings and sugar-lows at bay for a couple of hours. Opting for a toasty it was great to have one that had not come out of a packet, it was malty brown bread, grated strong cheddar cheese and a... read more

I used to go to Pennau Crafts for lunch when I taught at the near-by primary school weekly 10 years ago and more. We were passing in the autumn and stopped by to get something to eat and to look at the craft section which is always interesting. There is a small independent unit in the courtyard worth visiting too.... More

visited today and although fine the coffee was slightly week and lacked that real coffee kick I crave, saying that it was hot and arrived quickly. The seating area was clean and busy and staff were cleaning and clearing tables as soon as they became available. Toilets are clean and located in the craft section of the building. The craft...

We passed by this cafe on our way from Aberystwyth, and decided to turn round as the sign outside said home made food and frankly we were starving. I never believe the home made thing, it usually just means heated up in the microwave! Well I was wrong in this case, not only was the food excellent the service was... More

Visited one afternoon for tea and cake. Not a massive selection of sponge cakes but they had cheesecakes, gateaux, scones, welsh cakes etc. My scone was not that nice actually but I rated this place with 4 as the surroundings were nice (in a pretty gift shop) and I could see the other food being taken out to other people...
