“can't beat the quality and service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

We have lived in Wales for many years and can't fault this place for GOOD food that's cooked well. The staff and owners have always made us welcome. Must say when we first started eating in the Maengwyn I thought it was a little like a transport cafe: But dont let that make your mind up. We have family in the Midlands and they always say; can we go the cafe jn Mac.

“Fab home-cooked cafe food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

This cafe is always busy and very popular with the Welsh speaking community. The staff are great. Food is typical cafe fare but home made, well cooked and good value.

“Possibly the best cafe in wales!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

I've been stopping at Bwyty Maengwyn for breakfasts, lunches and snacks for many years while travelling up and down Wales and have never been disappointed; simple food perfectly cooked every time. Breakfasts are never greasy - just delicious. The beef stew (cawl) just like home made. Food always freshly prepared, good and hot, very reasonable prices, lovely staff and café always full of local people. It is a perfect café and I hope it is there for a long time to come!

Fantastic sausage egg beans bacon and chips. Lovely. Kids loved beans on toast and cheese on toast. Nice baguettes too. Cakes look nice.
