It’s rare to find a place to eat that has everything going for it. This café does, because it offers so much. In terms of dining, there’s a full variety for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus drinks. The interior is very large, airy and well appointed. There’s even an area with leather couches around a wood burning stove. Gaby and Dorina who run things, and are presumably the owners as well, are very hospitable.
There’s a large, free car park, and you can even park overnight for just £5, if you like. What sets this establishment apart is the forward thinking they use to accommodate customers, like climbers and hikers. They can use the car park for free, without being a customer. And if they go inside, there’s a map display table for route planning, and maps for sale. Take that, competitors, with your parking for customers only signs. Siabod Café has got it right, because hikers will park there, get their directions, go hiking, and when they come back, where better to eat, have a drink, or relax in front of the fire, on a comfy couch? Now they have repeat customers, and more from word of mouth. And it all makes sense, because the café is located right in the middle of prime walking routes, so it's a perfect hiking base.
To top it off, they have sensible opening hours, too. I’m tired of trying to find places in Snowdonia that cater to when I want breakfast, instead of when they feel like serving it. 9am is too late, and some start serving breakfast at 10. Not to me, they won’t. Siabod Café opens from 7:30am to 6:00 or 8:00 pm, and all credit to them.
I wish them every success.
