Fantastic in every way

We had lunch here with our 2 young children and it was fab, we had a lovely window seat, the service was fast and friendly, the menu and special boards really spoilt you for choice and the food was really nice and high quality.

We have been working our way through the Porthmadog eateries and decided upon here today. We all enjoyed our lunch. The cafe wasn't overly busy which surprised me. The food came fairly quickly and the service was good by the 2 girls however the man (in charge?) was pretty miserable which took the edge off it. A smile costs nothing!

Bistro style with wooden chairs and tables over looking the park (so the kids can play whilst you wait for your food). I am yet to be disappointed with the food here. The vegetable lasagne off the special board was lovely. My other favourite is the Becws Melt or the goats chees on bruschetta. MMM!

Had pancakes with maple syrup and bacon, and it was amazing! I love the atmosphere here, great places for lunch or brunch.

Great little café with freshly prepared food that is made in house. We had a warm welcome and prompt service. only slight criticism would be there is no kids menu but they will adapt any of there menu to suit taste where possible. I will be going back to try more of their menu!

Is not open in the evening, but during the day this restaurant serves a good range of tasty meals in a very pleasant environment. Gets very busy in holiday times but is well worth a visit

Its not on the main street but a couple of blocks back. Really nice lunch, good specials selection. Food both very good and well presented. Would certainly make the effort to visit again the next time we are in Porthmadog.
