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.

The food at Uncle Albert's cafe is delicious, fresh, and beautiful! It's amazing value for money with the very reasonable prices. Good, generous portion sizes. The chunky chips are the best chips ever! Interesting things to read and art to look at while you're there, and often some friendly locals including those who work there to chat to. A fantastic...

Usually difficult to find options on vegan but ample choice for both sweet and savoury on the menu ! The owner, I think , was lovely, very helpful with options , she also let my grandson use...
