Description: Our 5 star food hygiene rated Cafe has been a part of the Aberystwyth cafe scene since 2004 when we operated from premises in Cambrian Place before moving to 26 Chalybeate St where we established a reputation for great coffee and excellent service. Expansion took us to our current location at 6 Chalybeate St in Dec 2012. The new premises has 60 covers and enables MG's to bring our excellent service, coffee and food to a wider customer base. MG's is a truly independent and local business with an ethos of buying fresh produce locally and providing a Welsh biased menu with delights such as Welsh Rarebit, Cawl and Glamorgan Sausages. We use meat from the famous and award winning Rob Rattray's butcher (next door) and are developing a reputation for our MG's Burger as well as Gails cheese and potato pie.. All our coffee is ethically sourced and we only use the very best Arabcia beans from Colombia.At the heart of MG's is a customer service ethos that always puts the customer at the heart of everything we do. Customer comments, good and bad are positively encouraged to ensure MG's is always at the leading edge of delivering great customer service.MG's has disabled toilet facilities as well as baby changing and high chairs available.

“A very late Christmas Meal review...”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

The Christmas meal I had has to be one of the nice meals I have had in a long time. The food was plentiful and it all tasted amazing whether it be the parsnip and cranberry soup for starter or the main of a classic roast it all tasted amazing. The staff were super friendly and they didn't hesitate to come out to see if we needed anything this only added to the friendly atmosphere of the place

“Bara Brith!!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

We only had coffee & cake but from what we observed and over heard, the food was excellent. Lovely atmosphere. Friendly happy staff. Coffee brilliant. Bara Brith was probably the best I have tasted. Lovely lady who made it even gave me some tips on how to make it.

“Just amazing little gem”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

I had attended for an early Christmas dinner. The building remained open after hours for our party which was a delight. It was great that the chef came to our table to see if everything was ok with each course and if we required extra, just above and beyond. The food was the best tasting food in the aber town. The local draught beer was just the cherry in top.

“Great for University Social Meals!”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

I am a University student, and we held our Christmas meal at MG's. The staff were lovely and welcoming, and were also able to accommodate for the fussy eaters within our group. The food was gorgeous! I'd definitely recommend coming here in a group/for social meals.
