Great place to eat, watching the world go by. Service and food was spot on. Dog friendly (at least if one eats outside).

Beautiful village and this cafe was the high point of our visit. We stopped for a small lunch (we had a large Welsh breakfast!) which was excellent. We sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine. We will definitely visit again.
