Don't be misled by the outward appearance of a rickety mobile home in a layby. This place is awesome. The food puts most other eateries to shame and the surroundings just add to the experience. You won't find cheap ingredients dripping in grease but rather well thought out flavoursome meals at very good prices. Go now!

On the long haul from South Wales to Scotland our I-spy book of slow moving traffic was full before we had covered 2 counties. We already knew that we had missed the 18:00 ferry from Oban and it was only 9am. Dejected, and a little stressed we diverted via Machynlleth, just to get away from the convoy of lorries. Our luck then took a dramatic change as we pulled into the Green Goat Cafe.
Our amiable host prepared a breakfast of home made tortillias stuffed with slow roast smoked pork, tasty refried beans and crunchy exotic leaves topped with his secret recipe BBQ sauce. WOW. I have traveled the world over and have rarely had such fine and authentic flavours. All this was local and fresh with lashings of that magic ingredient...... Love.
Undoubtedly the best roadside cafe I have eaten at in the UK and for a price that would only get you a starter in most pubs.
My future trips through Wales will be planned around the Green Goat Cafe. Get there before it gets packed out.

Been here a couple of times now and had excellent food on both occasions. The cooked breakfast is fantastic- the bacon alone worth coming back for. The main meals are also really interesting and - despite the low tech setting- cooked to a better standard than many restaurants. Will definitely be coming back when next in this beautiful part of the world.

What a fab place. Great menu and fantastic value for money. We stopped off on the way home from North Wales...and so glad we did. We had a chickpea burger with such a tasty fresh salad and salsa. Yum!! We also ordered (local supplied meat ) burger with salad, authentic style mexican fried egg tortillas...scrambled egg mixed with yummy things in mini corn tortillas was a big hit with my boys. To finish off we had homemade chocolate brownies and flapjacks...double yum..tasted so homely...and free refills for hot drinks.
The menu is interesting, varied and priced at about £5 for a heartwarming, delicious, tasty, oh so healthy and good for you meal...is a bargain!
I would recommend anyone to visit this..for a meal or for the lovely cakes. Friendly efficient service...it's really something different. It would be...it's in a bright green caravan!
