“We stoped for coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We stopped for coffee at this lovely café the lady was realer nice and friendly and the view from here over Llanberis was outstanding, we looked at the menu and next time we walk round the lake we will definitely have lunch here. You can come half way with the train and walk up for lunch a bit steep but well worth it.

“Perfectly placed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Take a walk around Llyn Padarn starting from Llanberis. Follow the white trail markers. About half way, on the opposite side you will come to Caffi Padarn - go in! Warm welcome, good food, fabulous views to Snowdon, and a charitable social enterprise so you will be helping local people. Could you wish for more? I always go for the poached eggs but the cakes look good too. Worth getting your boots on for!

“Cafe Padarn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Charming little cafe and staff to match - a view over to Llanberis and Snowdon to die for.The day I came across it, on the round the lake walk,the unexpected Easter snow made the view extra special - as good as anything in the Alps.Lovely coffee and cake.

“A must visit for walking around Llyn Padarn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We started out from Llanberis and did a full circular walk of Llyn Padarn, stumbling upon this delightful little cafe which is about half way round, just past Fachwen. We were informed by the manager that this was a community project run business. The fare on offer was a delight with lovely home made cakes and hot chocolate. The view from the tables outside is simply stunning, looking over the Llyn towards Llanberis and the Snowdon Range. We are in this area quite a bit and even if we do not walk around the Llyn, we will certainly visit this lovely cafe again - they even gave our dog some home made treats and water. in sum, this place is a delight.

“Coffee anytime of the day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

We thought this looked like a lovely café although it seemed that one of the ladies' humour had gone out of the window. Beautiful cup of coffee nonetheless after a trip to Mt Snowdon and a brief walk back to the hotel.
