Compass Coffee on Penarth Marina has been judged the overall winner (for the whole of Wales) of the title Cafe/Bistro of the Year in the 2017 Food Awards Wales ceremony at the Cardiff Marriott Hotel last night.
The owner and catering manager of Compass Coffee, Craig Pugh, said “We are all over the moon we are a small place who goes under the radar quite a bit by the local press so it means so much to get this recognition.”
The popular waterside cafe also took the award for the South East region of Wales.
The new Etc…Restaurant on Stanwell Road Penarth took the title “Restaurant of the Year South East”.
Owners Julia Bakshi and Alex Mules said afterwards “We’re thrilled to have achieved this top award, especially so close to our first anniversary. We’ve achieved so much in our first year and this is just the beginning. This fantastic award is testimony to the hard work put in by our whole team who should be extremely proud of themselves. Thanks also to our customers and all who voted for us.”
The winner of the title “Chef of the Year” was James Sommerin at Restaurant James Sommerin on Penarth Esplanade
