“Atmospheric trance of days that have been! ”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

This is my local coffee shop and out of all the places to go this is mine and my friends favourite. A lot of locals come here as your always ensured quick service and a friendly chat, plus reasonably priced lunch and cakes.

Meg's cakes are always good usually there's a variety but very rarely the selection is small as she's not in the kitchen 24/7, much to her dismay I'm sure.

I particularly like the atmosphere of the olden days feeling you get here. The old decor of a former iron monger shop surrounds you and it feels like slice if history has been preserved and recycled for our enjoyment.

“VERY disappointed”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Expected lovely selection of cakes in a really old fashioned shop. What we got, after attending very small wedding in the town, we went there for tea and cakes before eating later in the evening, was not much choice, we went upstairs to find lots of dirty looking sofas,one in particular looked like the dog had chewed it badly. The others looked really dirty. Not somewhere we wanted to sit with decent clothes on, or actually with my jeans on. The cups were dirty, the order came and was wrong, the scones were nice, but the lemon drizzle cake ordered as a recommendation from this site, was lemon sponge not a drizzle cake . It was ok but ridiculous portion for one person. And the final bill for 5 of us and 2 children was not cheap Really disappointed

“Cake!!!!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

As always very friendly in here. Nice homely feeling with comfy sofas and also normal tables (slight wiff of dog though, but this is the countryside so it adds some atmosphere.. that's what i tell myself..)

Games to keep the kids quiet and cake to wake them up!

The cakes are fantastic, not sure why it's not world famous haha

Good coffee and enough choices of syrup to sink a battleship. I've not had then all yet after visiting for years.

“A great place for lunch”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We stopped here for lunch after cycling from Barmouth. We found it by chance after walking around the town trying to find something for my fussy husband and son. A very quaint, quirky building houses a funky, lively cafe/restaurant. Service was slightly haphazard, but we weren't bothered as we were on holiday. Lots of locals use this place - it had a great atmosphere. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. The cakes are ENORMOUS! Loads and loads of choice - and very, very tasty. We were very glad to have found this great cafe - a real gem!

Found this purely by chance and was totally charmed by the building and the atmosphere with all the old store fixtures and fittings :-)
