“Worth visiting”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Independent, quirky, high quality, good value and deceptively spacious. This is an artisan bakery and a surprisingly competent coffee shop rolled into one. It can look a little cramped on a cursory inspection, but there is further seating available deeper into the shop. It is well worth visiting this place, and it is worth the wait if there is queue out of the front door. Loved the Dinosaur bread : )

“Great little cafe”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

This place is a real treasure, excellent food, great kids sandwich bags with lots of choice (even soya which I struggle to find for my 5 year old) and the coffee is delicious. The bread and cakes were amazing. Definitely worth a visit.

We called in for lunch on Saturday with our family. What a lovely place, great selection on tea's and coffee's and home made food.

“great little cafe”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

My husband and I were recently looking for somewhere nice to have coffee and cake in Porthmadog and chanced upon the Big Rock Cafe. What a great find, lovely coffee and a fab selection of homemade cakes, a really original selection it was too! There were some great looking lunch options too, next time we're passing through we'll definitely be back.

“Lovely find in north wales”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

Saturday in March at the seaside! This was a lovely find very rustic and homely, we had coffee and cakes, coffee a little hot. Home baked breads looked tempting. Hope they do well in this quiet town.
