“Best banana split in Borth!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Sat in Uncle Leo's tucking into an awesome banana split with peanut butter ice cream. My friends are enjoying chunky homemade chips and the coffee is good too. Would recommend for snacks and sweet things - especially good for veggies and gluten free.

“Wonderful atmosphere and Ice-cream to die for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

While on our little trip to Borth today, my husband and I saw an 'award-winning ice-cream' sign in Uncle Leo's and we decided to give it a go. The first thing that makes an impression as you enter the cafe is a very pleasant decor and beautiful pictures on the wall. When choosing our ice-cream we were spoiled for choice, couldn't make our minds up as there were so many mysterious tastes that you wouldn't get in a standard ice-cream place. We have been served by a very friendly and generous chap who treated us to free samples of ice-cream we considered having. And the ice-cream was well worthy of the title, in fact it's the best ice-cream I've ever had and I can't wait till our next visit to Borth so that I can have some more! I'm sure Uncle Leo would be proud.

“Great food, excellent ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Uncle Leo's on the High Street in Borth, Wales, is a real treat. They have excellent vegetarian fare at a very reasonable price - we had the falafel pita platter with wonderful falafel, hummus, and great fresh salsa - and arguably the best ice cream in the world, a local Welsh delicacy. They also have a great selection of coffees. Lovely place, great conversation, really delightful. If you're in this part of Wales this little cafe is well worth a visit.
