Lovely cafe right at the top end of the town across the road from the train station. Great food from breakfasts, baguettes and snacks to a varied meal choice all at reasonable prices. It's run by a charity so all proceeds go to good use....More

Amazing staff combined with lovely service and excellent food. I Couldn’t have asked for more. I also found the prices very reasonable considering it is in a busy spot in Caerphilly. I will definitely return in the future.
