We ate lunch in the cafe on Saturday. Soup and a sandwich seemed great value fo money with home made soup and freshly made sandwiches. Tea came with extra portions of hot water and we got about 5 cups between 2 of us. The atmosphere in the cafe was really friendly and welcoming. There were obviously many regulars calling in,...

Great for a quick bite or a sandwich. Breakfast here was OK (not sure if they were value for money) not great, but the sandwiches excellent with lots of filling and a great side salad.

Small but very welcoming and always excellent food. The daily list of soups is mouthwatering and served with warm fresh bread. Called in for a late lunch with a group of friends and treated to a warm welcome and great food.

Stopped off in Denbigh en route to a week in Towyn. The Glass Onion was a welcome place to stop for lunch. I was made to feel like a regular customer, although this was the first time (and sadly, probably, the only time) I will visit. The welcome and the atmosphere were brilliant, and then the owners were the icing... More

Excellent coffee. Always a warm welcome and very relaxing. No feeling of "hurry up, get out" even if you're only having a coffee.

Wonderful little cafe. We just called in for a take away coffee while the Tour of Britain cycle race was starting. We were instantly made to feel most welcome and part of the family. A very special find for future visits!
