Thank you very much for seeking us out and choosing to eat at Breaktimes and for also taking the time to leave a review with your lovely comments. Our location is somewhat out of the ordinary and this makes it even more special that people like yourself find time to tell others which in turn helps our business grow.

We fully understand that we are nothing without you and will at every level possible work harder than anyone to ensure your breakfast experience with us is met to not only an exacting standard, but with a level of service second to none.

We open each day looking forward to greeting all of our customers, many of which have gone on to become friends and look forward very much in welcoming you back upon your return. Thank you once again for you custom and kind review.

“Do not miss out!”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

My husband and I have just spent 3 nights at the Travellodge in Porthmadog, North Wales (splendidly average) but were lucky enough to have three breakfasts at this spotlessly clean and very friendly restaurant in the industrial estate (one minute walk from the hotel). Three excellent breakfasts they were as well, with complimentary orange juice and refills on tea and coffee. When they say that nothing is to much trouble they mean it, and all for an average of £5.50 per breakfast. We shall certainly be back next time we are in the area. Many thanks to all the staff therea for a great experience.

“Great reputation, well deserved, but avoid busy periods.”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

Stopped here for breakfast based on these reviews. Clearly word has spread about this place, it was packed, but we did grab a table for two which had literally just been vacated – the seats were still warm! As soon as we sat down, someone was over to clear the table and wipe it over.
There is a great choice of breakfast to suit all appetites, the place was a mix of tradesmen and families. We had a 20 - 25 minute wait for our breakfasts due to the number of customers, but the quality was really good and the bacon bap was enormous – so much so that my wife piled all the bacon into one half and ate that - which was sufficient for her.
We noticed that there was a hygienic gel station on the wall near the counter for staff and customer use. The staff used it quite regularly.

“Lovely cafe, helpful staff, we will be visiting again.”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 via mobile

Lovely little cafe not far from Porthmadog high street. Great breakfasts and food options available, but not only was there great food but The people working there were absolutely brilliant and couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. I took my young daughter and we were greeted by crayons and sweets, there were ample highchairs and they were imacculately clean. Would definitely recommend this cafe and will be visiting again soon.

Firstly thank you for choosing to eat at Breaktimes and for taking the time to leave a review with your lovely comments.

At Breaktimes we firmly believe in offering freshly cooked quality meals at affordable prices coupled with friendly and attentive service and to us children are important little customers too and are never overlooked. We have yet to find a child who does not enjoy colouring and giving them a little treat at the end of their meal is a simple, pleasurable gesture and the look on the childs face is, for us, a joy to see.

We pride ourselves on both this and everything else that you have kindly noted that we offer and look forward to welcoming you once again when you are in Porthmadog.

“A little Gem”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Stayed at the Travelodge in Porthmadog and saw a sign pointing into an Industrial Estate advertising breakfast. Thought it would be the usual 'butty-wagon' but followed the signs to find a proper little café serving brilliant breakfasts and lunches. The range and quality of food was excellent and the service was prompt and pleasant. I would recommend this café to anyone staying in the Porthmadog area and we will definitely be going there again anytime we are in the area.

Our location is somewhat out of the ordinary and and we thank you for pointing this out and for your kind recommendation of us to others.

At Breaktimes, our aim from the outset was to prove that we could achieve all that you have kindly noted regardless of location and we thank you for your kind reference to all that we offer.

We look forward to welcoming you back when you are next in Porthmadog.
