Good coffee and an all-too-tempting selection of cakes. Portuguese pasteis de nata particularly good. Also pleasant to have a welcoming Welsh-speaking atmosphere, though non-speakers treated just as well.

Always a warm and friendly welcome from all staff. Coffee is great and the Portugese custard tarts are a must have if you're visiting. Come and try the food too. Delicious.
