But clearly you have to have been eating here for years, as i've been going for the past year regularly and often get served after their regulars, even though i've placed my order before they have arrived, that aside, they do wonderful food, the brie and cranberry panini is the best i've tasted, the coffee is excellent and the choice of cakes quite scrumptious. All in all an excellent cafe, and reasonable priced.

Went here for a spot of lunch with my partner and we both ordered jacket potatoes.

He ordered brie and bacon and myself tuna melt - both looked absolutely delicious.
The portions are ample and it even comes with what tastes like home made coleslaw and a unboring side salad (baby toms, lambs lettuce, grated carrot, cucumber) - a wonderfully refreshing change to plain old iceberg lettuce and cucumber that normally grace the plates of other places.

The fillings in both jackets were big and very very tasty - quite possibly the best jacket I've ever eaten :) Well prices at just over £5.00 a portion.

Will definately come again next time to taste the cake selection :)

We have been to this cafe before and always loved it! Good food.

I visited today with my parents. The restaurant was dirty, the table wasn't cleaned from the previous customers until we asked. The waitress' t-shirt even looked filthy, dust all over the counter and the little bell which was a nice idea. We had to clean off crumbs from our seats. The toilets were filthy and the seat clearly not cleaned. The waitress never smiled and didn't seem bothered we were there.

Having said this the food was ok but was expensive for what we got. It was served in good time.

We will not be returning.

A very nice homecooked meal was had in Y Gegin Fach, and have returned there since, and we were not dissapointed the second time around either! A very nice portion and freshly cooked.
