My partner and I have recently visited, both opting for the full cooked breakfast. They took a while to arrive but it was good to know things were freshly cooked to order They were well presented and very tasty. Unfortunately towards the end of my breakfast I found two hairs on my plate (not mine) I highlighted this to the... More

Wifey had an excellent soup, I went for the toasty, and we both had an enjoyable break. Lovely staff, and the owner helped us out with some restaurant advice while we were on our trip away.

I'm guilty of being labelled a creature of habit, because if we are in the area this place is a must visit and visit we do! But then why wouldn't you when they serve excellent coffees, chilli hot chocolate and a huge selection of Tea Pigs teas? The food is superb with a wide range available and a wonderful special...

We have visited Cafe Food for Thought several times now and have been very impressed with the quality of the freshly cooked food, range of choice including a specials board and the polite and prompt service. On the occasions we visited it was very busy, but we were not kept waiting particularly as the food was mainly cooked to order.

We've eaten here many times and not been disappointed once! They have a varied menu with many specials which are written on the chalk board. Their cawl and home made soups are delicious with good portions. My husband loves the cockles and lava-bread dishes. The home made cakes are delicious. You must try one of their frangipane cakes. I've tried... More

This is a locally owned Cafe/Coffee lounge in Cardigan. I have never had such excellent customer service . The staff are the friendliest, most helpful I have ever come across in the whole of the UK . The food is always well presented, really tasty and always hot on the plate. The food is always homemade and not bought in... More

I have come here for years, even before it was food for thought & have always been a loyal customer. I enjoy the food but the service is just terrible. Except for Grant (I know his name as he went to school with people I know!) He is always efficient & friendly, but if I am not being served by... More

I like the convivial atmosphere and good selection of interesting food and drinks. They serve 'Tea Pig' teas, every variety possible by the looks of it. Some of the staff seem a bit young and occasionally inattentive (chatting and having in jokes between themselves rather than looking after customers), but the owner (I assume he was the owner) is clearly...

This has become a regular Saturday haunt for us and some friends. The coffee and tea selection are brilliant. The food menu is detailed and beautifully cooked. Friendly service and a great atmosphere makes it the perfect place we called in on Saturday 6th December about 3.00 and instead of being told as so often happens in this area, we're... More
