“Almost turned!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

Now this place almost turned me Veggie!
A fantastic cafe with friendly staff and good hearty and tasty home cooked food and salads to die for. I enjoyed every mouthful and will be back for lunch again when next in Mach.
A real community feel and love the big tables to mix with others. Coming from the north east we don't have places like this and everyone keeps themselves to themselves.
Hope you have continued success as you deserve it!

“Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Nice friendly Cafe with really good quality food. Enjoyed it very much for a really healthy lunch. Really appreciate having a wholefood, healthfood Cafe in Town. Would have given 5 stars but think it is just a little expensive.

“Cheese and honey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

Stopped here en route to Aberdovey. Just my sort of eatery although I'm not a veggie myself. Got chatting to another customer (in a lovely coat!) who recommended the cafe's 'goat's cheese and honey', served on a roll with salad. Unusual and very tasty. Hubby liked their soup. Just wish I'd had room to sample the lovely cakes on offer. And they serve Barleycup, always a plus for me. It's the sort of place where one shares table with strangers which I don't mind in the least, though some might. The decor was colourful and rustic. Hope I get to go again.

“Great food, great cafe!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Stopped here for breakfast before driving home. Friendly, helpful staff, well cooked food using good local ingredients, great coffee. And a very comfortable homely feel to the place. Would definitely recommend it - and the daily specials looked amazing. Yes, it's vegetarian, but don't let that put you off!

“Best cafe for miles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Great food, especially the pizza and the baked potatoes and the trifle .... Christmas dinner is fantastic. It closed for a while but is now back better than ever.
