COFFEE & LIGHT BITES
Idris Stores, Corris
I know we have mentioned these guys a few times but we genuinely love this place. A great place to meet people and to hang out eating a drinking the hours away. Very relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Dyfi Roastery, Machynlleth.
If you like your coffee made by an award winning Barrista then this is your place! Cakes sell out quick so get there early! Simple light lunches and speciality hot and cold drinks.
Wednesday Is Market Day Machynlleth.
Every Wednesday you will be spoilt for choice at the Mach market. Traders, bakers, candlestick makers (ok maybe not those) but it is well worth a visit and you will find food ranging from cakes and pastries to curries and tofu.
Glan Yr Afon / Riverside, Pennal
A 15 minute drive towards the back is a Pennal and there you will find some of the best food in the area. Large gastro style menu with all the local favourites all beautifully prepared. Glyn and Corina the owners have many years experience in the restaurant trade and it shows, having created a warm atmosphere with great food and wine.
Slaters Arms, Corris
Our little local pub. Ales on tap, great choice of beers, ciders and Scrumpys. Simple pub food menu. Pool table and dartboard too. Spend hours meeting the friendly locals and hearing their stories. Check their facebook page for opening times as in Winter they vary.
Tafarn Dwynant, Ceinws
Brilliant beer, steaks and burgers. Locals love it and I'm sure they they want to keep it as their own little secret so don't tell them I told you. 5* ratings on Trip Advisor too if you don't believe me.
Cross Foxes, Brithdir, Dolgellau -
Nice family restaurant with good meals and large bar. It is one of the go-to places for a good lunch or evening meal.
FISH AND CHIPS
Hennigans Top Shop, Machynlleth
Award winning local chippy in Mach, Takeaway just the way it should be.
Sea Breeze, Aberdyfi
It's a restaurant, not a takeaway, but if you want the best fish and chips around and want it on a plate with a glass of wine then pay them visit. Being a restaurant then they have lots of other bistro food on the menu too.
VEGAN & VEGETARIAN
Idris Stores, Corris
Owned by Rob and Hazel, both vegans themselves, they offer a lovely selection of vegan friendly options, pastries and lunches. But they are more than happy to add a few slices of bacon to your breakfast too! Also, the coffee here is great! Saturday breakfast club has already become legendary.
CAT Cafe, Centre for Alternative Technology, Mach.
A real treat for vegans and vegetarians alike. An interesting but simple menu with some great flavours. Wholesome and healthy in a family-kitchen style setting.
Personally not been to these next two yet but have heard good things.
Number 21, Mchynlleth.
Blasau, Royal House, Machynlleth.
