Not your normal cafe!!

Fantastic, quaint little gem! Excellent views of the river. Food was amazing. I had the bacon & Brie panini... What arrived was 'homemade' chips, salad & panini. Staff were patient polite and efficient! I will definitely be returning here!

We spotted the cafe bistro on our first walk round Llangollen because of the location overlooking the river Dee. We decided to reserve a table as Llangollen is always extremely busy and we didn't want to wait. On arrival we were fortunate to receive the table with the view of the river and even though it was evening time it... More

Everything about the place is excellent; from the genuine warm welcome you receive as soon... More
