We visited here on a midweek lunchtime, having been on the Ffestiniog Railway, planned to have a quick lunch and then catch the train back.
We sat outside as we had our dog with us, but going upstairs to order, the inside of the cafe looked really attractive. The menu is simple - burgers, sandwiches, jacket potatoes - just what we were looking for.
Perhaps it was because we didn't have all day, but we did feel the service was very slow. We ordered at the counter and it then took over 35 minutes for our food to arrive (1 sandwich, one jacket potato & salad and 1 kids meal) despite there only being one other small group in the place. Wouldn't like to be there when it's busy!
The food was fine, but it would have been nice to be offered some basics: any sort of dressing for the salad, ketchup for the chips, butter for the jacket potato, or even better if these arrived with being asked for.
As it was we only just had time to eat up and get out.
So nice place, but could make some improvements with the service

Cellb Cafe-Bar with its European Brasserie vibe & convivial approach to dining & drinking is by far the closest trendyest in Town!
The art center has City vibe but with a unique twist of Welshculture
!All the staff ar local welsh spoken young people who shine in providing local knowledge on the area & whats cool in blaenau ffestiniog.
Its menu boasts full local produce - the only place in town serving fresh hand made food and local ingridients.Cellb Cafe-bar is Funky-arthouse-boutique-chic and truly is one of a kind!

sure where to start as I never write reveiws, but fron entry to exit this was a great experience, the suprising "off key" setting is an old police station tucked behind the main street in a quaint welsh style mews, We all had starters mains & a 2 out of the 4 had desserts, all had lagers, and 4 bottles of wine we had change out of £120, and we're decent drinkers too!, I highly recommend this for couples and groups of friends its soo chilled without being slack, staff and owners we just class and so attentive, the only crime here is that we had to leave!, a great place to spend you're hard earned swag.

What a welcome! Our group of 10 and a dog were served in a fantastic room where we were served with delicious food and some background to the building and how it had evolved. Thank you so much- the only place to accommodate us on a rather dull drizzly day.
