Heard a lot about this venue so came especially one day for a lite lunch. Nice interesting things on the menu. Good service and a friendly welcome. Seems lots of locals use the place. Looking forward to a return visit.

Stopped here for coffee and a huge cheese n herb scone. It is in the cutest house with crafts on display for you to purchase. Very welcoming and friendly service.

Popped in here on the way to Hay on Wye. Food was truly excellent. Probably the best BLT I’ve ever had. Carrot n Coriander soup was delicious. The staff were superb. Funny.

Even though it was a hot day we couldn't resist the pea and mint soup served with a cheese and herb scone and butter. Delicious. We'll definitely visit the cafe again when in Bishop's Castle and will recommend to others.

Had my usual flat white but the coffee was so good a cappuccino would have had enough flavour. Lovely atmosphere, eclectic mix of decor including crockery, friendly kind owner

We were camping in the area and visited this cafe for a hearty breakfast. We were not disappointed. Thick tasty bacon, gluten free toast, tasty coffee. All of us enjoyed our breakfasts. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Lovely take away mocha and flat white coffees and freshly made sandwiches. Homemade cakes looked great too!

Very friendly staff in a tiny old house. Good soup, sandwiches and scones. Can get busy with small children but there are 2 floors.

Popped in en route to Porthmadog mid afternoon. Extremely welcoming staff, quirky decor and most importantly delicious cakes. We had the marmalade cake and carrot cake both were moist and full of flavour. Loved the vintage feel lots of things to reminisce over.
