I don’t think it’s a great name for a nice restaurant right on the harbour in Aberaeron.
“Cellar” makes me think of Josef Fritzl.
But Bethan and I had a good lunch at a very reasonable price here, which has given the word positive associations once again.

I have spent a long time grumbling about how Aber’s harbour must be unique in not having a fish restaurant on it.
So now it has one. A smart one.
Yes, it should be in the building that’s now the courthouse, but you can’t have everything.
What you can have is a tasty seafood lunch in a stylish restaurant.

Coffee is getting complicated in Aber.
It takes longer to buy a coffee at Coffee1 than to drink it, my last MG coffee wasn’t great, and I’m not going into Costa because it’s too dark.
And Starbucks is just too chummy: why do they want to pretend to be my friend?
So thank heavens for a small, quick, unpretentious place like Cariad.
