Great coffee and cakes

We were in Cardigan looking for a light bite and a cup of something hot. All agreed that the cakes (home made I think) were really worth coming here for and the drinks were well received by all

We went here on the strength of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. It was all very nice, just nothing special. We expected more.

I'm quite a regular here but that will come as no surprise to anyone else that's been there. The setting is superb, range of food in my view cannot be bettered and the friendliness of the staff is the finishing touch. Four of us called in on Friday night to sample their new Mexican night which is running through the... More

We had lunch here last week. We ordered two toasted sandwiches, a kids ham sandwich and a kids meal of ham, peas and potato croquettes and a drink each. All of the food was lovely and the kids portions were generous. I have to admit though, the best part of the lunch was the caramel iced coffee we ordered. It... More

Very tasty food although be prepared to wait for a table as it does get very busy. Huge choice but not so much for the children although a good basic children s menu

Called in for a quick snack and cuppa. No wonder all the cafes in town are empty everyone in food for thought. Food and service as you would expect without breaking the bank. Great hosts.

Having just had terrible service at Coffee 1, we gave up waiting in a queue and found this lovely restaurant. The staff were attentive and polite coupled with excellent food at a reasonable price.

Visited today with my dairy free 1 year old. No Allergy folder but waitress was very thorough at checking for me what I could feed him. Restaurant was comfy and bustling and each member of staff we dealt with were very friendly. The food was presented very well cooked to a great standard and a real bonus for us is... More

I rate service and frlendliness just as much as a great Tea Pig Selection, superb coffee, delicious chilli hot chocolate and the most varied Specials Board - all beautifully presented. But then don't forget you'll also be tempted by the wonderful selection of cakes and biscuits. Lousie and Luke have got this place buzzing and rightly so. As a journalist... More
