Lovely cafe with a courtyard area which is perfect for dog owners. Delicious cake and hot chocolate. All the staff were friendly which is always a bonus!

“Best bacon sandwich ... ever!!!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

As it says on the sign outside they make THE MOST delicious bacon sandwiches - lovely thick bacon and gorgeous fresh bread, we couldn't have done better ourselves!! Thank you, it really set me up for the day ahead.

There was one little (but important) thing that distracted me from my delicious sandwich - the incorrect use of the apostrophe on the sign on the door. Yr Hen Efail owners, if you read this, please, please will you remove the apostrophes from customers and toilets (both of them), they should not be there.

Highly recommended - don't go anywhere else!!

“Granddaughters birthday”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

A party of fifteen of us , including six children went to have a celebratory tea for my granddaughters 4th birthday today. We had excellent pleasant service throughout. Everybody chose different things ,and the food was piping hot with generous portions.. Anne had even made jelly for the kids puddings. Also we took our own birthday cake, to which they provided candles , and brought it out singing Happy Birthday. Roy cooked non stop to give everybody their choice, ranging from a brekkie , to roast dinners, jacket spud, beans on toast, egg n chips etc. The young assistant was also a very polite and helpful young man too. We live local and have been in the past for a quick lunch , or their EXCELLENT large brekkie before a long journey, to just a cuppa with a mate. Every time service is friendly quick, and food fresh. On a warm day it is really nice to sit outside too.

“Best breakfast ever!”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

We live locally and have had the pleasure of taking our family to Hen Efail because we knew they needed a good breakfast before setting out on a long journey home.

I know my brother feels that breakfast can be the best meal of the day. He was not disappointed and had great difficulty in finishing his plateful... but he managed. I had the small breakfast & struggled with that, but it was so tasty I couldn't bear to leave a crumb either. I must ask Anne where she buys her bacon because its so tender and tasty. just thinking about it makes me want to pop down there now.

The hot chocolates are so rich and delicious too, especially after a walk along the beautiful Mawddach estuary. The walk starts/finishes about 100 yards from this lovely café so be sure to sample both and you won't be disappointed.
