After walking up Snowdon with my lad, decided it was getting dark too quickly to cook back at the tent; so wandered through the village and ended up in here - mainly because I fancied an 'all day breakfast'.

It was a wet dreary evening and the cafe was about two thirds full, yet despite the grim weather it was clean, warm and had a nice atmosphere. The lad who served was friendly and was trading banter with everyone in the queue, locals and 'foreigners'. Tea was in big mugs and poured from an 'eternL teapot', no individual tea bags, but endlessly topped up and a new bag added when needed - just as I remember from cafes when I was younger.

The menu was large but fairly simple, with some specials such as lasagne and a few veggie options. Orders were taken and a raffle ticket given to identifqho had ordered. I had the small breakfast and it wasn't that small! Bacon was delicious, thick and not too crispy, two hash browns, fried egg, sausage and fried bread. The boy had a cheeseburger and chips, which had fresh salad and proper slices of cheese, not a plastic square. Both very yummy and very welcome after our climb up the mountain.

All in all, a really friendly cafe with nice atmosphere, serving good basic food well.

Basic good food. Gets very busy because its such good value. Bunk house is clean and comfy - worth staying if you're on a budget.

We (tried) to eat in Pete's Eats this week and, quite honestly, it was awful - we had to leave most of it.
The order was taken quite quickly, but we had to wait half an hour for the food. Then, when it came, it was horrible. The bacon was tough and black (think it might even have been re heated).
The bread wasn't fresh. The 'baguette' hadn't even been properly baked. The chips looked as though they'd been cooked 3 days ago.
Quite a simple order - bacon sarnies etc - but total rubbish.
Oh and some staff need a bit of customer training.....!
