Excellent value breakfast in spotlessly clean café. As the many notices around their walls say "nothing is too much trouble". You can change any items you like on their set menus.

I had a 'best', which was delicious and perfectly cooked, I was expecting a bigger portion after the hype - but that's just me being a pig. On the flip side, my 3 kids shared an adult meal which came out as 3 separate... More

The cafe was spotlessly clean. The food was brilliant value for money with orange juice included with most breakfasts and unlimited tea/coffee. We could not fault anything and would thoroughly recommend... More

Don't be put off by its location on an industrial estate. This café is spotlessly clean with friendly staff and excellent food at good value prices - cooked while you wait so it reaches you piping hot. So glad that we sought this café out after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. We both opted for the B.E.S.T. breakfast at £6... More

Great Service, great value food,very clean. Mega/challenge breakfasts available to. Only downside is it is not open on a sunday,but I suppose the very helpful staff do need a break. A must to stop at even if you are not in Porthmadog it is well worth a detour
