Having read such great reviews we thought this would be a great place for a walk & lunch stop on our way to Dogellau. Unfortunately the Cafe is now closed and the leisure centre said the lease was still available and they did not know...More

It is shut and has been since March. I tried to close the trip advisor site then without any luck and have done so again now so hopefully that will work. We are now at Gorwelion at the other end of town and open 364...More

Would never have thought of going into a leisure centre here to eat but we were tipped off following a chance chat. Very basic seating etc., simple menu but food well cooked.

We only nipped in here to grab a couple of drinks while visiting the lake. The view out of the window to the lake is great and the price of the tea and coffee was very reasonable.

This is *just* a café in a leisure centre beside Bala Lake/Llyn Tegid, and its menu reflects that - soup, burgers, sandwiches, panini and baked potatoes - but the quality and value are very good. I'm a vegetarian, and enjoyed a nicely-done baked potato with...More

We run the cafe in the Leisure Centre in Bala. It is right by the lake with free parking if you leave your registration number in the book at reception. We sell great coffee, homemade cakes and prepare really good food on the premises using local produce whenever possible. Excellent burgers, sausages and steaks from T.J.Roberts for example. We have tables at the lakeside and run a BBQ at weekends when the weather is fine. A family run business with very welcoming staff, we look forward to welcoming you!
