So many trekkers with dogs and still no dogs policy. Such a shame. No place to warm up before the way down - you’re welcome to sit on the floor beside toilets. 🤬No chance for a cup of tea or coffee.

So disappointed! After a lovely train ride up Snowdon we arrived at the cafe expecting it to be busy. We did not expect to see every table piled high with rubbish, there was not a clear spot on any of the tables. Some people were...More

A small café and gift shop near the summit of Snowdon. Have a cup of tea or a scone with cream and jam if you've taken the train up and are waiting for the return trip.

When you’ve trekked up Snowdon the last thing you expect is a poorly organised bleak cafe, that lacks any character with limited seats and a policy of not letting dogs in. The cafe is totally sterile and it’s barely warm in there. For those with...More

To the moaners and previous reviewer's, please stop! The cafe is greatly appreciated after the climb to the summit as well as the clean toilets. It's at the top of a tourist attraction so of course it's going to be busy! They also have to...More

This is a disgrace. The walk is wonderful, of course. But when you reach the summit you are greeted, if that’s the word, by a truly hideous building which houses what is optimistically called a cafe. This is the worst service area cafe you’ve been...More
