Caffi Cwtch

Nightingale House Hospice

Chester Road, Wrexham, LL11 2SJ

FOR a mid-week lunch break, I wanted to go somewhere that wasn’t necessarily the first place that sprang to mind when mulling over Wrexham's many eateries.

So I thought I’d try Caffi Cwtch, the café/restaurant located at Nightingale House Hospice on the edge of the city centre.

Caffi Cwtch is a bright and friendly place to come to eat, drink, and socialise.

Upon entering, my attention was drawn straight away to the variety of cakes, biscuits, and other sweet treats on the counter, but I paced myself and waited until I’d had my lunch first.

The Leader:

The café was busy, clearly a place where many groups come to socialise and catch up, which implied that this place really was popular.

I didn’t struggle for somewhere to sit though, as there were plenty of tables to choose from.

After browsing the menu, I decided to go for the battered haddock with chunky chips and mushy peas (£8.25) accompanied with a mocha (£2.95).

In addition to the lunch menu there was also an all-day Welsh breakfast menu, a selection of sandwiches, and baked potatoes.

The Leader:

My mocha arrived alongside a little Welsh cake which is always nice, and the drink itself was delightfully rich with a subtle blend of coffee – a really nice-tasting drink.

Then, about ten minutes later my food came, which was a very generous portion and looked equally delicious.

The fish was really tasty and the chips were crispy and thick whilst also piping hot, all accompanied with a side salad and tartar sauce.

The Leader:

Once I’d finished my lunch, my next port of call was back to the counter to get a slice of the triple-layered chocolate cake (£3) which I first eyed up when I came in.

The staff brought the slice over to me and I must say it was thoroughly enjoyable.


I’m not usually one for indulging in desserts but I just fancied a slice and I’m glad I did as it was the perfect way to finish off my 40-minute or so stint in Caffi Cwtch.

The Leader:

Overall, I’m glad I called in. It was nice to try somewhere different that wasn’t in the city centre.

I got a real sense of community in there actually, lots of groups of older people laughing and socialising made for a pleasant atmosphere and the staff were helpful and friendly too.

The Leader:

My total bill came to a respectable £14.20 which I thought was fair for a big plate of fish and chips, a gorgeous tasting coffee (with a little Welsh cake) and topped off with a delicious slice of cake.

I’d certainly encourage anyone to give Caffi Cwtch a try whether you’re after a lunch stop, a light bite, or even some coffee and cake.

There’s something to suit everyone, whilst also having plenty of opportunities to donate to a good cause.
