Hi Sue P, Thank you for you review! Many customers are surprised by the space we have and that we are above a motorcycle showroom. Tell your friends and spread the word :)

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.

Brilliant Cafe above Thunder road on Tremains Rd Bridgend. Many go there just for the food and a chat... Staff are great, food is reasonable and available all day. Can't go wrong

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.
