Situated beside the Vale of Rheidol Railway station at Devil’s Bridge is a family run tea room serving up a wide selection of treats including freshly prepared sandwiches, filling breakfasts, jacket potatoes and paninis alongside a huge selection of homemade cakes, drinks and ice creams.
There’s no need to worry about finding a space here, there’s plenty inside their railway themed and cosy interior (including a warm conservatory) and a huge number of tables out front alfresco.
Early risers until 11 will find a range of filling breakfasts including their Cambrian Mountain (3 of each) and Two Hoots (2 of each) alongside a range of ‘on toast’ options, big brunch baps, toasted teacake and homemade bara brith.
At lunch there’s a wide selection of paninis, baguettes, toasties, jacket potatoes and wraps, in addition to homemade soup, pre-packed homemade sandwiches and range of warm savoury snacks (sausage rolls, pasties). The coffee is freshly ground and tea is Welsh.
Those with a sweet tooth will love their popular Welsh tea served with a buttered slice of bara brith, two welsh cakes and pot of Welsh tea. Additionally all cakes displayed at the counter are homemade and on our summer visit included a moreish lemon & blueberry (pictured), butterscotch & walnut, lemon drizzle, apple crumble, carrot, lemon & poppyseed, double chocolate, almond slice and yogurt coated flapjack to name a few.
The friendly cafe is a stones throw from Devils Bridge Falls and located in the stunning Cambrian Mountains, just twelve miles from the hip town of Aberystwyth and twenty miles south of the famous and very steep (25%) road cycling climb of the Devils Staircase. Do try out our very own circular Cambrian Mountain road cycling route which passes Llyn Brianne with it’s famous spillway and onto the tricky but rewarding climb.
