Great freshly roasted cappuccino


The bakewell blondie is perhaps the best blondie I've tasted! Soft and sweet and just what my legs were craving for after the hilly route into Aberaeron. Their mac n' cheese pies are also much talked about


Great selection of homemade tray-bakes and cakes (around 10) in addition to cheesecakes, quiches, breakfast rolls, toasties, jacket potatoes, paninis, pies, sausage rolls, baguettes and sandwiches


Cappuccino (£2.50), cakes (from £2.00), sanwiches (from £3.95), baguettes / paninis / toasties (from £4.50)


No bike racking nearby however there's plenty of space around their outdoor undercover seating area situated out front


Plenty of seating both inside and out for larger groups - if looking to sit indoors do phone ahead


Aberaeron is known as the Jewel of Cardigan Bay with quiet roads all around offering panoramic views of rolling Ceredigion countryside - if a little hilly at times!

Situated in the seaside town of Aberaeron, famed for it’s Georgian character with brightly painted town houses, a delightful beach and bustling harbour is a superb cafe serving up some of the most delicious cakes we’ve tasted – the bakewell blondie is a must try!

Inside you’ll find a tasty selection of tray-bakes and cakes including brownies (caramel, double choc, honeycomb, biscoff, GF), blondies (biscoff, bakewell), lemon drizzle, toffee sponge, cheesecakes and shortbread to name a few, with gluten free options available.

There’s also a superb savoury selection including their famous mac n’ cheese pies, tasty quiches, sausage rolls and a great range of fresh sandwiches, breakfast rolls, jacket potatoes, baguettes, toasties and paninis – the crispy sweet chilli chicken is a favourite of ours (see pics for more flavours)!

With plenty of seating in their undercover marquee it’s ideal for larger cycling groups, there’s also seating indoors for those cooler months too.

Once refuelled there’s quiet roads aplenty nearby, if a little hilly, offering fantastic views out over rolling countryside and across to sea.
