“Great lunch”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Called in here a week ago, it was very busy-due to hot weather. My OH & I had the ham baguette just under £5, and definitely a meal in it's self, succulent home cooked ham and loads of salad, in very fresh bread.
Parents had the ham platter-which was quite dear with home cooked chips and loads of salad, they finished off with apple pie, which looked delicious with loads of thick apple still intact in the pieces it was sliced in-great pastry as well.
Overall, fresh, tasty food, very pleasant efficient service-even though they were rushed off their feet.
Next time we'll go back for the scone, cream & strawberries-never seen one look so big in my life!!

Have been to this place before but only had a snack and cup of tea,this time we decided to have a meal. Went with husband and my Australian friend,who we were giving a tour of the island of Anglesey. As it was a lovely summers day we sat outside and enjoyed the lovely view of Church Bay. We each had a different choice off the menu,mine being fish pie,which was absolutely lovely,packed with salmon,white fish & prawns in a delicious cheesey sauce and a nice little salad. Hubby had gammon egg & chips which consisted of a large piece of gammon,fried egg and the most lovely thick home made "propper"chips. My Aussie friend went for a beef baguette that was stuffed full and the cups of tea were decent size mugs. It's a wonderfull little place,friendly staff and the prices are very reasonable. It's a must visit if you are in the area,as is the Porth Swtan house which is next door.

“Don't be deterred by building!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

The initial impression of the building is not great, but don't be put off or you will regret it.
A little gem of a cafe/ restaurant. Very informal. Seating available outside.

Salmon and crab so fresh you can taste the sea. The scones seemed a real favourite with some customers. They seemed huge.......... The scones I mean!

Worth a visit but does get busy which proves the quality on offer.

Situated a few minutes walk from the beach. Steepish hill down to the pebble beach which might be testing for older or disabled individuals.

This is one of our fav places for a seafood lunch in Anglesey.

“Our local cafe”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We live a mile as the crow flies from this lovely cafe so during the months when it is open we are regulars. Love the cheese pie and salad and my other favourite is the Mediterranean Soup served with a large chunk of bread. Real tummy fillers. Just wish it was open outside of the main season because during the winter months we get withdrawal symptoms.
