Good hearty food - sandwiches, burgers and fry ups mostly but done very well and a lot of choice.Also a lot of different drink choices, hot & cold, not healthy at all but enjoyable! Outdoor seating decent by aberystwyth standards.

Unfortunately service is a bit lacking. Was waiting for a friend and approached the till to order a drink, was told to take a seat and the waitress would be over. I sat directly opposite the till but no one came. About 10-15 minutes later, once my friend had also arrived, we both went to the till and order was taken no problem. Didn't seem to remember having already spoken to me.

Seems a bit like the staff are unaware of who is responsible for what, I could hear a lot of discussion about what had been done/not done yet - very loudly too. Having worked in catering, it works best to have say one person responsible for orders, one for making drinks, the other for running tables. This place could really improve if they took notice of this! I still go here, good place to meet friends, but will always order at till as seems to be the only way to get service.

An accidental Sunday morning find having decided we were probably going to have to buy a loaf of bread and some cheese from somewhere for breakfast. Good selection of different breakfasts, good coffee, very friendly staff and great atmosphere. One of the best breakfast cafes I've ever been in.

Had the chicken and chorizo salad. This is proof salads arent boring. A big variety of different salad leaves, loads of chicken and chorizo as well as mozorolla cheese. Croutons and balsamic vinegar to top it . At £6.95 this shows why it gets so busy. If your brave try the luxurious hot chocolate. Service was good too. Only constructive critisism is please clear the tables before people need to use the.
