My fiancée and I popped in, 15 mins before closing time on a BH Monday. After holding open the door for the (presumed) owner whilst he took food out to a table and then opening it and holding open again on his return in, there wasn't even a thank you or acknowledgement! All we got was "only drinks and cakes... More

We ordered homemade tomato soup, which was very nice, as was the warm bread that accompanied it. We returned later with friends to indulge in coffee and cake. The lemon meringue was lovely, but the carrot cake didn't go down so well. Our friends had panini's, which they enjoyed I think.

Popped in by chance for a snack. Very impressed with the Welsh Rarebit. Nice and clean with a good array of snacks. Worth a visit when you are passing.

This little cafe was lovely. It was a busy Saturday lunchtime and obviously popular with locals. We liked the mix of age groups.The two young girls running it were unbelievably efficient. The food was excellent value for money. I had a chicken burger which came with onion rings, coleslaw and salad at under £6. Well done!

Called in bank holiday Monday for lunch. 6 year old daughter had to pop to the loo straight away so our order was taken a couple of minutes behind the group that came in after us - they refused to do a kid's portion of fish and chips (no more cooking so in fact anything from the kids menu) but...

We visited this charming village on the way to Beddgelert to find that it was market day. The whole street was buzzing and we had a very nice cup of coffee in this coffee shop. It's a pity we weren't hungry because the portions of the cakes and the food that was served were enormous. It is a family-run business... More

Looks OK from the outside, and is clean and tidy inside. However, the service was a tad slow. The coffee could have been stronger - too much water added to the brew I suspect. The real stinger was the charge of 25p per cup for a dash of cold milk. This is an outrageous charge. My advice is to shop... More
