Superb food and service

My wife and I were most impressed not only with the extensive menu on offer but also with the speed and efficiency of the service. Quite outstanding - no wonder the cafe was almost full at lunchtime - a great indicator to us as motorhomes travelling to many different towns and cities places to eat.

We were recommended to try it by a lady selling cakes at the local market, she said it was the best cafe in Cardigan. We arrived at 11.40 am to read on the menu that breakfast service ends at 11.30! We asked if breakfast was possible? Of course it is! Just what we wanted to hear. Two full breakfasts were... More

We use to go here alot as a family, food was lovely, prices were good but recently feel as if you pay a lot of money for medioka food and a dull atmosphere.

As usual a good selection for kids and a varied specials board plus the standard menu for adults. Our children love this cafe so much they are always trying to get there for midday to ensure we get a table immediately. Staff are very friendly and helpful. It is great to see an independent like this thriving and doing well.

We had a very bad morning on a day out to cardigan and stopped at the food for thought cafe for lunch and it completely improved our day. They were extremely busy but when we stopped a member of staff to ask if they could reserve a table for us in half an hour he was very calm and understanding... More

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.
