To all of us at Pete's Eats the food is
the cornerstone of our business. Even though we operate at the
cheaper end of the catering market we achieve a high standard
and quality. Many of our customers have depleted energy reserves
when they visit us and therefore large portions are a major feature
of our business. Many national chains have a standard portion
of about 4oz for French fries cut thin so they seem more. Our
standard portion is about 12 oz cut as a half inch chip.
There is always a good selection of healthy
eating options as well as a number of choices for both vegetarians
and vegans. Pete's Eats was one of the first six places in Wales
to receive the "Heartbeat Wales" award for eating places offering
a full range of healthy eating options.
We use butter, not a spread.
The following brand names are also familiar for their quality rather
than cheaper catering alternatives: Typhoo, Nescafe, Cadbury's drinking
chocolate, Ribena, Pepsi, Kraft Wesson oil, basmati rice and are
in daily use in the café.
We are one of the few cafes left in the
area still making our own chips, buying over a ton of fresh maris
piper potatoes each week. Most of what we sell is made and cooked
on the premises - soups from fresh produce, cakes from raw ingredients,
not mixes, and specials made on the premises and not bought in
from the frozen food wholesaler.
The café does buy in items
such as beefburgers, cod, sausages and bacon. We are also still
using Sunblest bread, though that is under review, for sandwiches
There is always a good choice of cakes,
soups and specials made on the premises. Here is a selection of
what has been available in the last couple of months:
sticky toffee pudding, apple pies,
date slices, flapjacks, carrot cake, chocolate cake
lentil, spicy tomato, mushroom, vegetable, leek and potato, carrot
spinach and chickpea curry, lasagne, veg & butterbean domada, provencale casserole, spinach and cheese pie, chilli, spaghetti
bolognaise, spicy bean casserole, hummous
And, of course, we are well known for
our pint mugs of tea, coffee and drinking chocolate.
