We were visiting for the first time and asked a town worker where he would eat for good value and taste. He mentioned one on the main tourist drag and then quietly add, "or you could try my brother's just down the street there. You won't be disappointed." And we weren't. The menu has a wide variety of freshly prepared... More

The food was nice, but the hours are limited. They only serve afternoon tea after approx 2.30pm, but they close at 4pm, so get there early if you want scones and tea!

This is a good little place for Porthmadog. The food seemed quite good quality. My boyfriend had a burger which he was really pleased with and looked good. I had a chicken 'Ciabatta', the chicken was very good but it was less Ciabatta and more big floury soft bap - which was a disappointment as I had paid extra for... More

This place was on my list for a visit, ideally for an evening meal, on our recent break in Porthmadog.However, it is no longer open in the evening. So, lunch it was. The menu offered a fairly average selection of sandwiches, salads, wraps etc plus all the usual 'cafe' items. The specials board did provide some relief from the norm... More

I live locally and eat in many local cafes but Yr Hen Fecws is my favourite cafe for lunch - because of the quality and choice. The menu is changed regularly and many dishes are more exciting and unusual than all other cafes offer. The food is freshly prepared and homemade. Last time I had one of the best garlic... More

The sausage was a bit of a let down, i would have expected a better qulaity as all... More
