My wife recently needed to take a trip to Llangerynw on a slightly overcast Sunday morning. Having never been to Llangernyw before, and knowing I'll probably never have reason to go there again in the future, I went along for the ride along with the kids. Llangernyw was not surprisingly a little on the dull side on a Sunday morning, however the road from Llanrwst and back was noticeably twisty so by the time we got back to Llanrwst we all felt the need for a break, a bit of fresh air and a drink. What we hadn't realised was that the Llanrwst half marathon was taking place on the day in question so the town was exceptionally busy for a Sunday and a result the cafes were all more or less full. We did however manage to find a spare table in La Barrica, just next to the front window.
Inside it's quite a small place and I'd describe it as being a little quirky with lots of wood panelling and interesting ornaments. The seating was a little uncomfortable to be honest but maybe that's to ensure customers don't clog up tables by dragging out a cup of coffee for a hour! There's more seating outside in the Square which I'd guess doubles the capacity so they must wake up each day praying for decent weather.
We ordered between us one Americano, one tea and two milkshakes along with a selection of home made cakes. The Americano was excellent, on the small side but quality won over quantity. The tea was good quality Twinings and the milkshakes went down very well with the kids, especially as they were served with curly straws. The cakes were all very good, if I had to choose again I'd go for the scone with jam and clotted cream.
This is certainly somewhere I'd visit again, and perhaps next time try out the Thai soup with prawns I spotted on the menu.....
