“Great food, friendly service, great atmosphere”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Contessa is a breath of fresh air offering good food and excellent teas and coffees. As part of the local Cilydd cooperative they really take their teas and coffees seriously with new blends all the time.

The relaxed atmosphere complements the food, with free WiFi and a central location in the market square this is "The place to be" if you are passing through Llanrwst. Bilingual in Welsh, Danish and English you will find yourself surrounded by locals and tourists alike. With a daily changing menu all meals are cooked to order from fresh with a passion by Rob the chef. On a cold day I highly recommend the soup of the day as it has never let me down yet.

“Faulty towers cafe!!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

I came here with my girlfriend a few weeks ago, we had a small and a large breakfast, the large breakfast, for £6 the plate was full! For the small breakfast that's £5, I got one sausage, one bacon, one egg and one toast...WHAT A JOKE!? I was still hungry after we left, mainly because the smell of fat and fryers had stuck to our clothes resulting from the kitchen being open and so close with no extractor fan! We had to go and change our clothes they smelt that bad :/, they also left one of our dishes with a 15 minuite gap between them! We sat in there for about an hour and a half just for a bfast, won't go back, ever.. And wouldn't recommend, go 4 miles down the road into betws y coed and find a proper cafe like Caban y pair or the alpine coffee shop
