Description: We run the cafe in the Leisure Centre in Bala. It is right by the lake with free parking if you leave your registration number in the book at reception. We sell great coffee, homemade cakes and prepare really good food on the premises using local produce whenever possible. Excellent burgers, sausages and steaks from T.J.Roberts for example. We have tables at the lakeside and run a BBQ at weekends when the weather is fine. A family run business with very welcoming staff, we look forward to welcoming you!

Looks unlikely from outside but really nice food- eg. decent burgers and vegiburgers, and proper chips! Coffee really good too. Overlooks lake, lots of space for kids to run around. Owners v friendly

A no frills,clean, bright and spacious cafe that serves great food with a smile. Black coffee is part of my staple diet and it was delicious. Nuff said :-)

I often use the cafe after circuit training and can highly recommend it. Excellent home made food and friendly service. Great views of the lake and more.

“A warm welcome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

A varied menu and friendly staff, combined with amazing views make this one of the hidden gems in Bala. No need to battle for parking in the town, the large car park at the leisure centre is free for cafe customers. Will definitely call again.
