Stopped for coffee , ice cream and Welsh tea before going into the castle. Absolutely fantastic value. All the family got what they wanted. My Welsh tea was awesome. Plenty of cake at a great price. Perfect😃kids loved the ice creams and the coffee was good too.

Visited this place on 2 occasions during our visit to Caernarfon. All the food we had was excellent. Can recommend the soup and the apple pie and ice cream.

The place to have an ice cream in Caernarfon. Huge portions and much better value than the other two main Welsh ice cream parlours. Recommend the vanilla and the mint.

My husband and I visited here on our honeymoon in June 2015. We both had an ice cream cone and it was stunning!!! He had some sort of cheesecake ice cream and I had baileys ice cream....it was divine!!! Well worth a visit!!!

just had a coffee and some ice cream, both of which were very good. Nice to sit outside and look across to the castle. No toilets though.

What a find. A rainy day in Caernarfon made sunny by this woderfully cheery cafe. The ice cream is an absolute must, and locally produced (on the premises to be exact). Made up for the woeful breakfast at the Premier Inn !!

Came here on a rainy, miserable day. It gave off a really positive vibe. I got two scoops of mint choc chip in a chocolate wafer cone. And it really lifted the mood of my day. It was fantastic ice cream that was made on the same day according to the board. The lady working there was very kind and... More
