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

While traveling I always hunt down the best espresso as soon as possible. I knew I had found it when I was served the perfect little cup at Food For Thought. They also served a delicious pastry. Though they do have a full cafe with a large menu, I was there for the coffee...several times.

I realized recently that I forgot to review this place after we visited in May - my husband is still raving about the burgers we had when we were there, swears it (venison burger) was the best he's ever had. I would concur that they were very good - huge portions so beware if you have a small appetite!! We... More

Lovely relaxed atmosphere. We both enjoyed our meals and even though it was busy the service was good. Loved the chocolate guiness cake. We are on our way home this morning and are going to pop in for breakfast.

Once again escaping a Downpour where better to go than Food for Thought for Excellent Service and a Great Fried Breakfast as a treat on a Wet Morning

Having tried several of the cafes in the town, we visited this one on the final day of our holiday. By far the best atmosphere, and the cakes were good. The pear frangipan was better than the coconut slice though. Great selection of teas to try -shame we couldn't go back. Will have to wait for next year! Always good... More

I am a local but I work away during the week, so it is a joy to come home and see my wife each weekend. So - when we wonder into Cardigan to do our weekly shop, we like to stop for a coffee and chat nonsense, to relax and enjoy one another's company. We used to visit '25 Mile'... More

We always visit Food For Thought whenever we visit Cardigan. Having visited several other cafes in Cardigan this is by far the best. The cafe is always busy and service has always been excellent. In fact on our recent visit we ordered meals from the specials menu, within minutes we were advised that our choice was still in the oven... More

Very interesting place for a little town like Cardigan. I like the food variety and the coffee selection is good. I visited the cafe on a Monday afternoon for lunch and I got disappointed by the slow service. I had been served food faster than coffee and still water and I had to finish my lunch without even having a... More
