Great food at a great price. Lovely friendly service. Great cup of tea. Had a really nice lunch here after we'd been to Caernarfon Castle.

“Fantastic great value café”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013 via mobile

Called in here at lunchtime, and had the mega breakfast. One of my kids had the children's bolognese. The food was superb. The portion size was generous. The cost was so cheap that you almost felt like telling them to charge more. Not fair to class this as a greasy spoon - it's better than that - but it combines the value and cosy familiarity of a good greasy spoon, with the friendliness and cleanliness of a well run family business.

“A favourite with my son”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

We have enjoyed eating at this cafe twice when visiting Caernarfon in 2012 and 2013 and my son loves it. Its greatest strength is the very warm welcome and the proprietor has been very kind towards my autistic son on both our visits.

There is a limited amount of indoor and outdoor seating both of which are pleasant, I could imagine it getting extremely busy during the high season. There is a good choice of savoury food including hot and cold sandwiches, jacket potatoes, salads and cooked breakfasts - less choice of sweets. Food is always efficiently and well cooked, tasty, with filling portions which are excellent value for money. I wouldn't say it stands out especially but it is good home-cooked food. There could be slightly more variety for vegetarians than cheese/egg/vegeburger/cooked breakfast with vegeburger instead of sausage and bacon, though my vegetarian partner did enjoy the latter.

Staff are quick to clean tables, especially outside where seagulls can get to the food, and there is an accessible and clean toilet. The cafe is ideally placed down the nearest side street to the castle - we will certainly visit again - my son wouldn't allow us to visit Caernarfon without eating there!

NB Special occasions rated "average" only because we have not experienced this.

“Warm welcome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2013

A small friendly cafe with a warm welcome. Food cooked to order and plentiful. Breakfasts are superb. Plenty of choice on lunchtime menu.A gem regularly visited by locals but strongly recommended to visitors. Try Calleys next time you visit Caernarfon!
