“No excuse in this day and age for poor coffee.”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

I was driving by, had little time and needed a coffee and sandwich so I called in here. The person serving was not exactly welcoming but hey it was late in the afternoon and raining, so perhaps it had been a miserable quiet day?

I do reflect when leaving a poor review especially when its very likely to impact on somebody’s business and a small one at that, but hey I am the customer and expectations are higher; in all parts of the world. The sandwich I purchased was basic; unimaginative white sliced bread with very little filling. The coffee was watery, weak, lacked any flavour and far too hot; if I had not driven several miles away then I would have returned it. I ended up tipping it away.

Apologies to the owner but it’s no wonder the branded coffee chains are now so prevalent, I am afraid they are providing superior products for much the same price.

“Good brekkie...”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

Decent brekkie and good service!

Family run place who obviously place a level of care into the delivery of your food and general customer service.

It is a bit small, but you can sit outside on a nice day taking the sun in!

“Nice lunch”
Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

On a misty and rather cold March day we visited Aberdyfi in mid afternoon. The pubs had finished serving lunch so we found the Sunflower. Food was good and a pleasant view made for a nice visit. Had to correct the gentleman serving as he had under charged us but overall a reasonable place for food during the day
