No longer a cafe and has moved just across the road BUT most definitely OPEN. The best bread and croissants around. An absolute dream of a bakery that also does pizzas and other occasional items. We love it.

We visited Cardigan and went to have a coffee and a bite to eat, but the bakery is no longer there. I don't know if they have moved or are a casualty of the Covid pandemic. Very sad to see them gone.

Stopped here in the morning and had a lovely tortilla, bread (best I’ve had in a while) and perfect flat white. Food excellent and service was great. Will definitely be back. Even the music was perfect. In fact booked in for a couple of days...away.More

These guys really know their bread - and it shows in everything that they make; whatever shape it comes in and whether a loaf, a sandwich or toast - it’s incredible. Simply perfect sourdough. Given the circumstances we couldn’t enjoy the usual fare (hence the...4 spots rather than 5) but instead procured through the hatch to enable distancing etc. Coffee was awesome, had a couple of sandwiches with local cheese and homemade chutneys (both excellent and that made for a great little picnic lunch) and a loaf for tomorrow’s breakfast. Folk were lovely, hygiene and COVID practices were all excellent...More

Friendly staff and amazing pastries, bread and breakfasts. An open fire during the storms was an added bonus. We cant wait to come back!

Fantastic lunch, real food from the heart. Borscht was perfect after a drive along the Teifi with my best friend DK. Ceramic cups perfect for a flat white. Thank you.

We came for lunch in desperation, as places were closing down and we were running out of options. I have a severe seed allergy, and could not find anything to eat in this place. In the end, I settled for plain toast with homemade beans....This was basically the only option suitable for me. It was tasty beans on toast, with rustic bread. I know this restaurant does not intend to appeal to the demographic of seed-allergics, but it was hard to find something safe and non-contaminated to eat. I’m not saying this is a bad restaurant, I’m just warning you, if you have a seed allergy, it’s not a good idea to come here.More

Staff rushed off feet as it was raining and people had taken refuge. Got table for 3 and chose smoked cheese hot pressed sandwich with sauerkraut which was excellent, chunky and tasty. Also had scrambled egg on toast. All veggie options and baked on premises...bread. Chose treat to take out for later. Not many covers so I bet it is sometimes hard to get in but well worth it.More

The food here was great but there was quite a queue to order food (and it wasn’t immediately obvious if it was table service or not) and it was quite expensive for the portion sizes. Definitely good food though but a little cheaper and we’d...have come back every day we were in the area!More

We stopped for tea and cake and were blown away. The cakes all looked so beautiful I struggled to pick just one! Also bought a loaf of bread to take home which was just delicious. Lovely setting and atmosphere, highly recommend.

We came here today for some lunch, it was 11:15am, upon being handed a menu we did not realise that the lunch menu was not served until 12:00am! This seems bizarre as the breakfast menu is served until 3:30pm. When the server came back we...inquired as to whether it would be possible to order from the lunch menu, but were told it wasn't possible as they hadn't prepared for lunch yet. However, many of the items on the lunch menu were using very similar ingredients to the breakfast menu e.g. bread and cheese so I struggle to comprehend how that could be possible. If you are going to be so strict on your lunch menu policies I suggest you make this clearer to diners entering the cafe. I also would suggest that they serve the lunch menu from at least 11:30, if not preferably 11:00 as this is not an unusual time to consume lunch by any standards. The server who informed us of this information did not offer any help, advice or apologies and was generally unfriendly and cold. It is safe to say we will not be back here again to sample the lunch menu any time soon!More

On a positive note, the food here is very nice. It is homemade and they use quality ingredients. However, this amounts to nothing as the positive side is greatly spoilt by the fact that dogs are allowed where diners are eating and also close to...where their bread is baked and food is prepared. This is very unhygienic. Why anyone would go to the trouble of cooking really good food, only to be let down by creating an environment (where dogs are allowed) in which to consume it, is a complete waste of time. This place could really be something special, but sadly, the unhygienic environment caused by having to sit close to smelly animals spoils it. They claim (I did ask) that they have a designated area in which dogs are allowed, leaving the main eating area and baking and food prep. area, dog free. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to stick to their own rules as I witnessed dogs being allowed in to the so called no dog section.More
