Had the goats cheese and onion tart and it was the best I'd ever had. As was the salted caramel ice cream

We visit Borth quite often as a family and have never noticed this place before (oh the crime!) We popped in, before we were due to drive home, to get an ice cream. I wasn't too keen on the idea as I was a bit upset I wouldn't be able to enjoy one, until I entered! I asked about the... More

We even ended up buying... More

Lovely quirky cafe with great coffee, food and ice cream. Very welcoming and just delicious food. If you are in the area there are some very boring typical seaside cafes, so try this one instead:-)

Forgive me. Who... More

Walked past this place many times not thinking about what's on offer. Popped in today with the good lady and boy, so glad we did. Gabrielle was very welcoming and helpful, and the Vegan options were great. After our meal we managed to squeeze in desert. I had a Raw Raspberry tart thingy with a date and almond base that...

Love this friendly place which has scrumptious veggie mains and all day breakfast. Welsh ice-cream sundaes worth detour-ing for, can't recommend highly enough!
