Great value for location

For what it's worth, not a bad spot at all. Very reasonably priced. I was starving by the time I got there so it didn't matter too much but I got a sausage roll for about 2 pounds... read more

This is the cafe at the top of the mountain. It was swarming with hikers, no place to sit. Terrible drinks and food. Staff was too busy chatting amongst themselves to take drink orders. Just terrible.

Walked up Snowdon during the Easter holidays only to find that the place was closed! There were a lot of disappointed walkers there with children wanting to use the amenities. The train was running too to ferry the staff to and fro. Not good for local tourism.

Unfortunately the website is advertising as being open but beware it certainly isn't at the moment. A number of very disappointed people at the top. Affer defending the mountain, locals advised if the train isn't going to the top, the cafe is unlikely to be open.

Good for refreshments and a bit of a rest after your climb, albeit a little expensive, but a bit too full of train goers who seem to fill all the seats.

If the train or climb is up through the clouds then this place is a godsend to warm up and get a hot cuppa before the descent begins. Hot drinks priced ok

We cheated and took the mountain railway up and down Mount Snowdon, but this summit building was most welcome anyway! It was very warm inside, something any walkers would probably be most thankful for. The cafe looked good, although we didn't try any food or drink there. The small gift shop was well stocked with souvenirs and items walkers may... More

It was misty wet & windy outside. Yes we were packed in like sardines standing at a table shared with many others. However a hot pasty & a mug of coffee has never tasted so good ! Just what we needed after our 3 hour walk to the summit. Bearing in mind the fact that all staff & provisions have... More

More of a visitor centre than a cafe with extensive windows to enjoy the view from the highest point in Wales (and England). Lying just below the summit of 1085 metres, the centre is a welcome respite from the climb, whether by foot or by train, although the views are dependent on clear weather, of which there was none on...

We climbed Snowdon with 2 young children and this place was a godsend. We were able to buy some sausage rolls and hot drinks, use the toilets, get warm and regroup before heading back down to Llanberis. It was also good for our children to admire the views without getting their heads blown off as it was quite chilly and... More
