We had the traditional Welsh cakes and they were simply delicious! In my opinion, it is a must to visit when in Betws-y-Coed.

The very best coffee sponge I've eaten! Welsh cakes delicately flavoured with cinnamon and custard creams to die for!

Great little coffee shop and a tasty choice of cakes. Lucky it was a nice day, only draw back was no indoor seating. But recommend the cafe.

We stopped here for drinks and a snack before setting out on a walk up the river. We got a selection of Welsh cakes, both sweet and savoury, and ate some there and some later. The seating is all outdoors and dogs are welcome. There are no toilets but public ones just across the road.

Been here several times now and never been disappointed. Coffee is simply outstanding along with the cakes. Seems to be a hidden gem in Betws-y-coed as most people choose the larger establishments, their loss!
