Me and my girlfriend ordered prawn sandwiches with coffee and orange juice. The sandwiches were made on order and was served with fresh salad. Everything tasted fine and the service was good. Seems to be a very popular place among the local population.

We had tea cake & Welsh cakes a coffee and milkshakes. The service was friendly and we would recommend it rather than succumbing to a chain like Costa which is round the corner. Diolch yn fawr
