“Our second Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

Cant say enough about this cafe,We feel like one of the family now as we have spent many years enjoying our Meals here,First thing you notice is how CLEAN the cafe is,The service is next to non
the staff are well trained,Food is always cooked fresh,The chips home made and a popular choice,The roast dinners are very nice the meat is so tender its the only place that i dont pass over meat for my husband to finish off,The Ice cream dishes are to die for,
we have taken so many friends and family to this cafe over the years and its become a winner
We notice that so many people come to the cafe every week just like us ,that you become friends
I would like to point out the toilets are kept SPOTLESS that tells you alot,
See you soon Mary and bryan.

“Must visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Recently visited 'John's Cafe' in Barry Island, stands out far and above the rest Barry has to offer, this will be immediately evident as soon as you walk in, the cleanliness, the quality of the food and the price is very good, but what makes it for me and my family are the 2 beautiful girls that are at your service, Zara & Charlie, so professional and totally efficient, they are very friendly, funny and in complete control from the second you walk in, they are an absolute credit, as long as the girls are there it will always be 'Johns Cafe' for us, cheers girls see you soon, Sam & Michell.

“Good food, friendly staff - Barry Island's must visit cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

If ever I visit the island, any time of year this is my favourite cafe. First class ice cream (honeycomb is my personal favourite) with waffles, and a latte with real coffee! Lovely views, friendly staff and mega clean compared to other places on the island. It's a must visit, even if it's for a bag of their finest chips before a walk on the beach.

“Gorgeous Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

Boxing Day our whole family ate at John's Cafe. We all had different meals and all came out at the same time, piping hot and just perfect. The chips were simply amazing. Wonderful value for money. We had a warm welcome and the atmosphere was great. This is a great place to visit. You'd be foolish not eat there as the place is just great as are the people who work there.
