Been visiting here for several years and it just never disappoints. Simply the best bread I've had anywhere. Great little cafe for brunch, lunch or a coffee and cake. I love introducing visiting friends and family to this place. It's a real gem!

Wonderful fresh food and lovely ambience. The building is beautiful and the menu is delicious. They always try to use local organic produce and the bread is baked in house.

Down a side street, so stumbled across this wonderful little Cafe/Bakery by accident, when looking for somewhere for breakfast. Certainly one of the best places in Cardigan for breakfast.

Expensive for Cardigan and the lack of meat may go against it in the long term, but lovely cafe with very limited but tasty menu. We had the Frittata of the day for lunch, which was served with an excellent slaw and salad and great...More
