We stopped here for drinks and a snack before setting out on a walk up the river. We got a selection of Welsh cakes, both sweet and savoury, and ate some there and some later. The seating is all outdoors and dogs are welcome. There are no toilets but public ones just across the road.

Been here several times now and never been disappointed. Coffee is simply outstanding along with the cakes. Seems to be a hidden gem in Betws-y-coed as most people choose the larger establishments, their loss!

We stopped by to get some great coffee and cake, we were not disappointed. Also bought a box of the fabulous fudge, as my wife loves the fudge. You must try the custard creams. Staff are also really friendly and helpful.

The welsh cakes you buy here are so lovely . They were on one of the British cooking programs on the television a few years ago and looked good on there
