“Visitors Welcome”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

When I visit Aberaeron I am always pleased to pop into Friends Coffee Shop for a cup of coffee, a breakfast roll or lunch. The staff are always friendly; Friends is open from early in the morning if you are travelling through, and the whole shop is sparkling clean. I am completely surprised at the comments about lack of facilities for visitors. I have seen people rush in whilst waiting for a bus and they are always welcome just to use the toilet.
Of course staff chat with their regulars, but a warm welcome awaits for anyone even on their first visit, and in my experience everyone gets served in their turn. No complaints

“Friends?”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Fantastic selection of good quality takeaway baguettes- always fresh and usually still warm. You won't find better take away lunch anywhere in town.
But-
1. The staff are really exceptionally sour and often make you wait until they've finished chatting before serving.
2. Drink prices are really steep.
3. The toilet is apparently out of bounds to non sit down customers (according to a youngish blonde lady serving at the time)- a bit petty to my mind.
4. The staff seem to choose who they serve first according to their own liking- I've often been served after people who have come in after me and seem to know the server.
5. The cafe always looks grubby.

Could be really amazing with a change of attitude- hate going in to Friends at the moment but the lemon chicken baguette is worth it.

“Smile you might enjoy it”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

Popped in for a coffee and breakfast and to be fair got both, not bad but could have been better a bit school dinnerish. No atmosphere and stone faced staff.
