“just what Porthcawl needs”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

A stylish building with an equally stylish interior - love all the glass.
And the coffee, pastries and desserts surpass anything else in the area.
It's about there were more places like this little gem around the South Wales coast!

“Excellent Coffee”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Love the Piccolo Bar, excellent coffee and delicious ice cream. The service is lovely, and they have by far the best views and seats in Porthcawl to enjoy a coffee or ice cream on a sunny day.

“Excellent food, service and staff.”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

We stopped off here on a Sunday afternoon for coffee and cake. The choice of desserts are amazing. You have to self service the desserts from the dessert cabinet, but there was a young member of staff there, I think his name is Nathan, who very kindly plated up the desserts for me. We enjoyed our cakes and coffee, and it is in a lovely location on the Esplanade with fabulous views of the sea. Since this bar has been newly refurbished, there is now a large indoor seating area in addition to outside seating, which is great when the weather is not so good. If you are ever in Porthcawl do give this lovely restaurant a visit, you wont regret it. The staff here are first class, very helpful and polite.
