    Had a great traditional english breakfast @7:45 on a Sunday morning on the high street in Bala.... Remarkable given that nothing else opens till lunchtime..
    Can't remember the name but just follow the big line of canoes, mountain bikes and GS, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Aprilia, Ducati and other owners..

    Hang on, what's that funny little portacabin at the end of the car park?

    The Wizard - Alderley Edge Cheshire on the B5807

    They do great bacon butties and there is plenty of parking beside the cafe and in a dedicated car park.

    Also another one to look out for is a cafe on the left as you ride up to the Cat & Fiddle pub from Macclesfield on the A537. I'm almost certain it's the last bend on the left before you make the final climb to the pub. They do great breakfasts in there and they have an open fire as well.

    Blind Beck farmhouse, just ouside Horton in Ribblesdale on the road to Ribblehead/Hawes.

    Eat inside or out, friendly service and good value for money.

    Tarporley (Cheshire) & Hawes.

    The No.6 Cafe in Tarporley Cheshire (middle of the high street) medium size place. sort of posh - Its not a rough/greasy spoon! Doorstop toast, crumpets & great coffee & papers, specials at dinnertime right till afternoon homemade cakes etc.
    Parking is free & right outside the door. Doesn't open till 11am on Sunday tho. recommended to anyone in cheshire, pay a visit.

    Hawes - The cheese factory Resturant, I have had great meals from there, not cheap but brilliant food, sit down job with all types of cheese on toast upto roast dinners, applepie with cheese (it's a Yorkshire thing!)
    free parking on-site.

    If you go let me know what you thought, NAB.

    Arrow best stop near Bala

    Call in at LL23 7LG Caerau Uchaf, best Bikers stop b4 Bala. Great Cafe, amazing views when you can see them. I'm biased, its our open garden signposted off the A494 but its a bit different. Cafe serves Tai Chicken Curry, Bolognaise, Burgers etc. I can send you away cross country when you leave if you like!
