A great find when we first visited Cardigan back in 2011. The food is delicious and they make a wonderful Welsh cawl. My partner absolutely loves this cafe and has the same meal each time we visit. Bacon and sausage omelette with chips and a deluxe chocolate milkshake. He's always a happy chappy after our visit. Highly recommend this cafe... More

Ate here Saturday lunch time and even though it was busy, the staff were friendly and we didn't feel rushed. Lovely food at good prices.

We are staying in Cardigan for a couple of days, and our first experience was so good we have visited twice in this time! Excellent food, attentive and fun staff, and a lovely atmosphere. Would definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area. Thank you to all for making our lunches such a positive experience!

My wife and girls go here quite often. We wanted to celebrate a birthday so went for lunch. The place was packed. With the help of the staff we were able to put a table together. There was plenty of staff and the service was exceptional considering a full restaurant. The restaurant has doubled in size since my last visit.... More
