This café, run by local charity, GISDA, is my regular stop off when in town, even though I live only a couple of minutes walk away. Many of the staff are young people in training, and they provide a good range of hot and cold snacks and the ususl drinks. A bonus is the chance to buy ‘suspended coffee’ for anyone who needs it - the receipt is put on a board outside. There’s usually a lively atmosphere, be it local ladies sharing the gossip, or the kitchen staff flapping to deter the gulls from dive-bombing the tables outside - where you can sit with a view of the castle and watch the comings and goings on Y Maes (Castle Square). Who could ask for more? Well, they also host and facilitate groups for young people, and last year opened their doors at Christmas to street homeless. I heartily recommend Te a Cofi - why not skip the fancy chain coffee shop and share the love!
