Yes, another Sunday and much need coffee after walking in the snow for 3 hours. This is my usual cafe when in Betws-y-Coed. Unfortunately as I had already made my evening meal at home, I didn't treat myself to a plate of chips. I have in the past and you get a decent portion of very nice chips. Looking at other folk tucking into food I was very tempted!

Not the cheapest place in Betws-y-Coed (which generally isn't cheap anyway) but one of the best cups of coffee I've had in town and apart from the height of summer it has ample setting. The staff are efficient, very polite and helpful. The boss must be proud of them.

We called for a late lunch on our way home from Portmeirion. We had stopped off at Halech , but the whole place seemed closed so it was nice to find Betws-y-Coed open and thriving.
There is a good choice of food on the menu - my husband had the scampi and I had a veggie pizza . There was a bit of a wait for the food , but when it arrived it was piping hot and obviously freshly cooked.
Staff were friendly and efficient - would recommend

The food here was decent enough - we ordered a couple of burgers. But it did seem expensive for what it was - especially as pretty much everywhere to eat in Betws-y-Coed offered Welsh Black bugers. They also had lots of lovely looking cakes and things - which unfortuantely I didn't try.
