We dropped in for an ice cream but decided to stay and have a Sundae as they looked so appetising. Love the different ice cream flavours (Squashed Beetle and Squirrel - you have to go to find out what they are).

Quirky and resolutely independent, this café has a great selection of ice creams. Friendly staff and good value, a must if you visit Borth.

Hello, no I'm afraid we're only open Saturdays, Sundays and then everyday during school holidays. So I'm sorry we won't be open next Friday.
