Popped in on lunchtime today between Christmas and New Year. Hidden up a spiral staircase from the motor bike show room, two chicken curries with chips and rice soon appeared along with a kids meal. Generous portions and very tasty it was too, all served...More

Great breakfast, lovely coffee. Views of Bridgend from the cafe are awesome. Service can be slow at times. Sausages are not to my taste, they need to change them :-) but thats my only complaint.

I was recommended this cafe by a friend and it didn't disappoint. We had a gold wing breakfast which was massive and great value for money. Fast service and a great stop off when you have a busy day ahead of you.

Hi there, Hot food service finishes at 3.00pm everyday :) But we have a range of cold food items available, freshly made cakes and snacks available all day until our closing times.
