We go to this place for brunch and you can’t beat it. Great cafe food, great service and dog friendly too. Oh and fantastic value for money. What more can I say.

Visited this café on several occasions and it never fails to deliver. The breakfast was very tasty as was the omelette. Lovely mugs of tea. It has a good atmosphere,plenty of quirkyness and the crew are really pleasant.😁

Thank you Robert, I'm happy that you are so comfortable with us :)

Popped in for just a coffee and ended up having the full cooked breakfast with the best mug of tea EVER. Just how I asked for it. The cooked breakfast was smashing and I'm now very full up. Hubby had the healthier option of porage,...orange juice with toast and marmalade. It's a cafe/bar/small venue and shop all in one, really quirky and will most definitely come again. Highly recommend this wee place to anyone visiting Cardigan. It's right down the bottom by the river and on the Right.More

Burger burnt and not as advertised a special vegan burger but cheap supermarket type. Extra portion of chips was laughable . Even the front of house questioned size only to be told by chef ( I use that word loosely ) that that's a std...size portion. Won't be using again.More

As a family of 4 including two (still) growing boys, we picked an outside bench in the morning sunshine. Breakfasts were absolutely top quality, none of that cheap wafer thin bacon you sometimes get. Vegetarian option looked the part and the filter coffee was spot...on. Great service and a friendly vibe inside, with plenty of customers on first name terms with the staff - says it all, really. Next time we need breakfast in Cardigan, I will be coming here first and will be looking forward to it. Best breakfast I have had out in years.More

We sat outside as some of the tables had little marquees over them in case of rain. Service was very quick and friendly. We had a couple of paninis and a jacket potato and everything was lovely and reasonably priced. Definitely recommend and it was...nice to sit outside and do a bit of people watching on a Saturday lunchtime.More

We wanted breakfast to set us up for the day and weren't disappointed. Many options on the menu and at good value too. Very welcoming, taking covid precautions very seriously, and very welcoming for our dog, who got free sausage from the kind team. Strange(ish)...decor inside, with our table surrounded by shelves of DVD's which I guess were either for sale or a stored collection, which seemed out of place with the rest of the cafe. Has a nice courtyard too which would make for a great coffee spot. Recommended.More
