Dropped in today first thing you notice is the strong smell of old cooking fat. Ordered full breakfast which was average in quality but was at least pipeing hot and to top it off almost got a smile of the waitress!.

This place has a history - its Bala's oldest Cafe.

But the decor is set in a period or cyfnod as the Welsh name suggests.

Its popular with the locals, and its great to hear them gossiping about this and that - there are some characters in this place.

Food wise its ok, I recommend the Paninis.

There's also free wifi - but you'll need to ask for the code.

I will be returning.

Lovely little cafe and had a coffee there while waiting to start work. Very friendly staff. Cafe was beautifully set out and very clean. Didn't eat there but cakes on display looked very nice

What a catastrophic lunch . I ordered the roasted vegetarian panini and was served frozen peas and carrots mixed with mozzarella in a hot baguette .. It was vile .. The salad garnish was slabs of white onion and wet lettuce .. It would have been lovely to have experienced some nice welsh hospitality but this was not forthcoming either so all in all a poor experience .
The pot of tea was nice though . This cafe has the potential to highlight the wonderful produce wales has on offer but instead chooses to hide behind poor quality ingredients and lacklustre service .
