We had several visits to this great ice cream parlour, the flavours on sale always make it hard to make a decision on which to have!

Good value lunch in spot ideal for visiting Caernarfon Castle. Interesting facts about Caernarfon and its castle on the walls inside along with a few basic phrases in Welsh. The staff there were very friendly. Would recommend to anyone visiting Caernarfon, particularly visitors to the castle for the location.

Says it all really, best icecream that we had on our holiday to Wales. The bright green decor means its easy to spot. Well worth it.

Freshly made ice-cream, absolutely delicious....and great prices too! Went back for lunch (yummy) and another ice-cream before our trip to Wales ended. Pristine cafe with lovely, friendly staff would certainly recommend. Love the blackboard with Caernarfon "factoids" too.

Situated close to the castle this ice cream/cafe shop is a welcome visit on a warm day, a good choice of flavours make this shop a popular and often busy location, ice cream can be bought either in cones, small tubs or novelty plastic mugs for kids of any age.

Whilst in Caernarfon for the day we made a return visit to the palas caffi the staff remember us we were made very welcome. The food was freshly prepared and piping hot the place is very clean with lots of information about wales on the big notice board on the wall. The ice cream was adorable. Well done Phil &Uinos

Great flavours like cherry cola and new york cheesecake ice cream this cafe is adorable. Genuinely nice service and value for money. I only wished they stayed open longer. After a day out would be great to come for an ice cream in the evening but places like this and other shops unfortunately close at 5. Come on Wales visitors... More
