Visited for lunch whilst on holiday in borth. We both opted for baked potato but there was plenty of choice on the menu and the self serve salad looked delicious. Staff were very friendly. The gift shop is quite nice too and not badly priced. We would come here again if we are in the area.

Over the years we have visited here we have never been disappointed. The food is all fresh and prepared to order. This is not fast food but well worth the weight. The staff have always been helpful and friendly and will mix and match if there is a particular ingredient you don't like. Baked potato with ham and apple is... More

The bathroom is lovely on every level, as are the staff, as is the coffee and the food. It's a lovely, cosy, relaxing experience. And you even get a flower pattern on your cappuccino if you ask!

Been coming here for years with my late nan so it holds a special place in my heart! Always lovely service with a smile and the added bonus of a wander around the craft shop afterwards. Good old fashioned customer service with lovely food x

Nice food and atmosphere. All appears to be home-cooked and prepared. Not the cheapest but still good value.

This is a delightful, family run café come shop that has a varied menu from a simple cake, through some delicious Panini to a light lunch with salad bar. We chose the BBC (Brie, Bacon and Cranberry) Panini for this visit with a very nice decaff coffee made how we like it (we ask!). Served by friendly staff, nicely presented... More

If you want a gift of Wales, then visit Pennau Craft centre. We stayed in Borth ad the few miles drive was well worth it. There is a great choice on the menu of Welsh foods and drinks. The gift shop has some great items, from coasters to lovespoons, and from socks to hats, as well as a geat choice... More

It feels like a cafe from the 1970's with boring decor awful bric a brac for sale. The staff were not hat helpful or warm and definitely didn't take to Welsh speaking customers. The coffee was terrible.
