We just wished we had not eaten our lunch that day and had room for some of savoury dood, too.Great coffee, too and very friendly service. Local folk bands music playing, adding to the atmosphere. We even ended up buying... More

Lovely quirky cafe with great coffee, food and ice cream. Very welcoming and just delicious food. If you are in the area there are some very boring typical seaside cafes, so try this one instead:-)

Walked past this place many times not thinking about what's on offer. Popped in today with the good lady and boy, so glad we did. Gabrielle was very welcoming and helpful, and the Vegan options were great. After our meal we managed to squeeze in desert. I had a Raw Raspberry tart thingy with a date and almond base that...

Love this friendly place which has scrumptious veggie mains and all day breakfast. Welsh ice-cream sundaes worth detour-ing for, can't recommend highly enough!

Called in to Uncle Alberts for ice cream and I was not disappointed! I had Squirrel ice cream? Actually creme brûlée also a beautiful vanilla and fig & honey that was simply sublime! Well worth a visit.

Stopped in before embarking on the costal walk to Aberystwyth. There were two vegan options on the menu a soup with salad and bread or a falafel burger. I opted for the burger and was not disappointed! Fresh, flavoursome and filling. This is a little vegan gem. Definitely one to visit.

Great service, lovely well presented homemade food. I had quiche, coleslaw and lentil salad. My teenage daughters had cheese and bean toasties with lots of salad. This is our third visit this year and is our favorite cafe in Borth, we shall definitely be returning!

We love Borth and we adore this place. Fabulous food - the best ice-cream for miles and miles - good coffee, attractive premises and charming staff. The prices are great too. A must if you are lucky enough to be in glorious west Wales.

I Love this Place Its been bit hot over the last few days and what better way to cool down than to have one of Uncle Alberts Ice Creams Plenty of different types to choose from, Tried Four types this week and Liked them all. If you like Ice Cream then this little place is the place for you.
