Great place to eat, watching the world go by. Service and food was spot on. Dog friendly (at least if one eats outside).

Beautiful village and this cafe was the high point of our visit. We stopped for a small lunch (we had a large Welsh breakfast!) which was excellent. We sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine. We will definitely visit again.

A tiny very historic building where the best has been made of the limited space inside. Plenty of outside seating in good weather and dogs welcome there. We had excellent lattes (including decaf) and delicious crab sandwiches and crab panini (generous portions) served by friendly...More
