Friendly staff and good quick service. Homemade cakes and reasonably priced. All the Covid measures in place and with an option to sit outside

Found by chance after turning to take some photos of the closed Magnox Power Station. This is a nice little working cafe. Looks like it may have been a canteen for the power station. The views are fantastic and I enjoyed my visit. Prices were...excellent £4.50 for a slice of cake, pot of tea and another drink. It’s a chilled out place and a cafe that does just that. It’s not a tourist cafe but a cafe for locals and those fishing. Does a good pot of tea and a slice of cake. What more could you want sitting looking out over the beautiful lake and hills. Staff were very nice and quick service. Noticed some retro original 60’s light fittings in the toilets. Hopefully they can put these back into use.More

Stopped off for tea and scones. Staff pretty indifferent only at end when I’d paid did they announce no cream left for scones. Scones disintegrated into crumbled powder on trying to cut. No apparent bother to collect details for track and trace. Use as a...last resort will be better eateries nearby no doubtMore

Only stopped for a pot of tea, but the cups were dirty! Inside and out!. We had just been debating whether to have a slice of cake, but thought best not to when we saw the cups still had residue of tea inside and they...were sticky on the outside. Not impressed and didn't feel welcome, either.More

We stopped at Prysor cafe by the lake on the way to Ysgwrn in Llan Ffestiniog. I had never been before. The cafe was very busy, which is a sure sign that the food must be good. And it was very good. We'll be stopping...there every time we go that way in future.More

Called by for a late breakfast and chose a bacon sandwich with a Cappuccino coffee. Both were excellent and the bacon was of very good quality. The staff were friendly and courteous and the service was fast. Sitting by the window I was able to...enjoy the wonderful lake and mountain views too. This was my first visit for many years, but I will not hesitate calling again when in the area.More

We called here twice this week and the food, cakes, prices, staff and above all location beat anything or anywhere. I’m not a fisherman and within 15 minutes of sitting down we saw 3 fish (trout apparently) being caught.

Great location , with nice freshly cooked meals served by friendly and courteous staff. The whole place was spotlessly clean --- we will call again when in the area .
