Travelling to Caernarfon regularly we visit Jakes a couple of times a month. It is a small Cafe with freshly home cooked food at a reasonable price. Being a small Cafe, it is sometimes full, if so there is always Caled's in the next street (at the other side of the market hall) which has the same menu (shop belongs... More

Jake's is one of the best places in Caernarfon to eat, night and day. We love that we can bring our own wine and the food, Breakfast or Dinner is divine. We recommend this wonderful eating experience.

We recently spent few days In Caernarfon and returned to Jakes Bistro for our breakfast. The full English is still delicious and very filling. There was a group of children in who were given a brilliant welcome and promised to return soon. Nothing was too much trouble. We decided to return the following day for an evening meal and were...

Small friendly place with extremely welcoming owners. Food is reasonably priced and of good, if not outstanding quality. It's good cafe rather than good restaurant standard I would say. The only unpleasant thing about dining here is the aroma of cooking fat - it does rather detract from the ambiance.

Monday night is not a good night for finding food in Caernarfon, most places being closed. But Jake was open and, as we stepped through the door, the welcome was great. Good humour, pleasant clean surroundings, a flexible menu. Immediately we were told the premises were unlicensed but soft drinks were available, great for me, and alcoholic drinks could be... More

Five of us were looking for a restaurant in Caernarfon on a Saturday night. After perusing menus in nearly every restaurant during the day we opted for Jakes as it allowed you to take your own wine. We popped into the restaurant early evening to check availability and were lucky enough to get the last table that the owner Dave... More

We stopped in here today while we were passing for some lunch. The staff were really nice and chatty and the food was incredible. I had a wonderful all day breakfast and my partner had, what she called the best baked potato she's had for a long time. The kids menu is good and they got surprisingly large portions. I... More
