This restaurant has now closed. I liked it when they were open but they claim business has suffered with Costa and Starbucks coming to the town along with many coffee shops to choose from.

University drop off, desperate for food. Shocked by £9.50 for a burger, especially when it was 1/2 the size of the bun and served on a very washed out chopping block. A sign says it is closing due to increased competition. At these prices I...More

One of the saddest things I heard today was that MG is closing down. We love this place, quirky enough to be different, truly wonderful staff and service, but driven out of business by the scourge of the multiples. We intend to visit as many...More

Group of 6 walking around and came across MG's. Apart from not having all the soft drinks on offer the food came relatively quickly and the portion sizes where pretty good. Worth a visit if your passing.

Our 5 star food hygiene rated Cafe has been a part of the Aberystwyth cafe scene since 2004 when we operated from premises in Cambrian Place before moving to 26 Chalybeate St where we established a reputation for great coffee and excellent service. Expansion took us to our current location at 6 Chalybeate St in Dec 2012. The new premises has 60 covers and enables MG's to bring our excellent service, coffee and food to a wider customer base. MG's is a truly independent and local business with an ethos of buying fresh produce locally and providing a Welsh biased menu with delights such as Welsh Rarebit, Cawl and Glamorgan Sausages. We use meat from the famous and award winning Rob Rattray's butcher (next door) and are developing a reputation for our MG's Burger as well as Gails cheese and potato pie.. All our coffee is ethically sourced and we only use the very best Arabcia beans from Colombia.At the heart of MG's is a customer service ethos that always puts the customer at the heart of everything we do. Customer comments, good and bad are positively encouraged to ensure MG's is always at the leading edge of delivering great customer service.MG's has disabled toilet facilities as well as baby changing and high chairs available.
