We called in whilst on holiday, the lady asked straight away did we want hot food as her delivery driver had had an accident so there was only toastys and home made soup. The leak and potato soup was beautiful, the ice cream which is all home made is to die for. As it wasn't to busy we got to... More

Didn't think there could be ice cream in GB that could compare to real Italian ice cream. Palas Caffi has proved us wrong - spectacularly! All ice creams made 'in-house' with excellent range of flavours and it is delicious plus it's very reasonably priced!! Owners/staff extremely friendly and helpful. If you're going to Caernarfon don,t miss it - you won't... More

Went for a quick lunch whilst the Porthmadog Steam train took on coal!! The place is owned and run by Mrs. Jones, ably assisted by Mr. Jones!!! The food, service and surroundings were wonderful and there were so many lovely and tasty leeks in my leek and potato soup. On the way out we had to sample an ice cream... More

Palas Caffi is the best place to buy ice cream in the Caernarfon area - with plenty of flavours to choose from, the variety of delightful types of ice cream is a very good! However, some of the flavours advertised were not available the day we visited. A bit of a let down, but it did not negate any of... More

Having visited Italy over the summer and the kids enjoying homemade Italian ice cream every day - I can honestly say that the ice cream at Palas is even better!!!! Firm favourites for us include New York cheescake and haribo!!! Friendly service and reasonably priced! You know somewhere is great when you see a long queue over spilling to the... More

Red haired lady offered a rude and unfriendly service - not expected in this good rated cafe. Despite of the service the ice creame was excellent.
