Over the 50 years I have worked out on the road, this is one of the cleanest, sparkling, cheapest café I've frequented. Like the others have remarked, don't be put off by the outside appearance and location. Nothing is to much trouble to cook for you, a trait that is well known form the where the proprietors come from , the midlands. Well done.

Visited twice during a short stay in Porthmadog. The outside appearance is deceptive, the cafe being on an industrial estate. However, once inside, it is very clean and well organised. A wonderful selection of breakfast fare ranging from a basic bacon roll through to a "Goliath" which appeared to consist of four of everything! Staff were friendly, jovial and polite and would cater for all breakfast needs. Reasonably priced food including orange juice and unlimited tea or coffee. Overall very good value. 10/10.

What a find this was! Found on Trip Advisor and it was every bit as good as its reviews. The food was superb and at very reasonable prices. Egg, Sausage & Chips was 3 of each with a huge portion of chips, combined with unlimited coffee/tea & bread & butter. The toilets get 6 out of 5! Very impressive.
Not easy to find, look out for the Aldi store as it's nearby and parking is in the industrial estate entrance road, but don't be put off, this is special. Thank you fellow Trip Advisor's for pointing out this hidden gem.

We go here at least once a month, the breakfast is fabulous, spotlessly clean, nothing too much trouble, always hot and made to order, fab staff who greet you as you arrive and leave, well worth the 40 mile round trip, I can't recommend this wonderful cafe enough
