Inventive menu, with lots of variety

I love this cafe. Lots of choice and vegetarians and vegans are catered for too. Add to that some delicious gluton free food and for those with a sweet tooth - cake. Staff are always very friendly and helpful too.

I always know I'm going to have a good meal when I visit Food for Thought in Cardigan! The staff are always friendly and the food good. They genuinely care about their customers, and always make me feel welcome. My daughter recently celebrated her 13th birthday there with her friends, and the staff made sure sure she had a birthday... More

Food For Thought is now my 'Go to' cafe, when its one of our birthdays we come for breakfast, when I'm in town I meet Becky and we have cake and lunch, my husband meets me for lunch here and I have never once had a bad meal or received anything less than amazingly friendly service. My 2 little girls... More

Whilst visiting Cardigan my wife and I were advised to visit here, well, we were not disappointed apart from one very slight thing, m,hat was that having been pointed to the daily board on making my choice was advised that my choice was no longer available, please erase meals from the board once sold out. However all this was soon... More

Food for thought do great breakfasts. The service is quick and the latte's are good. We've also been for lunch and that was delicious aswell.

We came across this 'little' unassuming café when travelling, what a surprise. Fantastic food, excellent customer service, speedy service and good value for money - one we will definitely search out for when we travel south again. Well done to the business for providing something different, tasty and memorable.

we popped in here after stumbling on it in the High St. In Cardigan. It was pouring outside, but we found a seat and picked from a very nice selection of homely cakes. I had the chocolate fudge cake, my hubby had the raspberry bakewell slice. Lovely and fresh, went down a treat with the hot chocolate. Staff were a... More

My wife and I eat here at least once a month. I usually have the cockles in cream special. Today (07-03-2015) I decided to try the Venison Gourmet burger. Wow! So many flavours hitting my taste buds! Brie cheese, venison, red currant jelly! An amazing salad and chips. I had no room for it all but there was no way... More

Have eaten here on half a dozen occasions and food was poor, at best, on 5 visits. The worst experiences involved a kind of rissole/scotch egg that was not properly defrosted and tepid soup. The problem lies with the fact that the menu is vast, so food cannot possibly be freshly cooked. We continued to give the place another try... More
