great food and service

Fabulous café, really welcoming log fire in winter. The food is always freshly made and the service is excellent. We always use this café when in Pwllheli and if you only want a snack the scones are amazing. Best café for miles by far, even worth going out of your way to visit

Called in today as the wind had picked up and the temperature dropped. So glad we did the sweet potato soup with chilli and mushroom soup were fab. You can tell its home made and really hits the spot. This was followed by festive turkey sandwich which was the best sandwich I've eaten for a while. Warm ciabatta , with... More

This is a lovely place to eat. The food is lovely and the staff are very friendly and attentive, even providing colouring equipment for the little ones whilst they wait. Have been here time and time again, and will continue to!

From the outside the place looks good, but on stepping inside the let-down begins. It has all the drawbacks of a chain outlet - predictable character-less furniture and fittings, but somehow fails to come up with any of the advantages. Service was aloof and lukewarm at best, the coffee lacklustre and the fittings ill-chosen as the easily showed the effects... More

Had lunch here twice with the kids when staying near Aderdaron. The staff were friendly and chatty without being intrusive and were fantasic with the children.The atmosphere was really warm and inviting with a lounge area as you walk in, with big comfy armchairs and a more traditional cafe area over to the right. There is plenty of choice between... More
