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!

We stopped by to get some great coffee and cake, we were not disappointed. Also bought a box of the fabulous fudge, as my wife loves the fudge. You must try the custard creams. Staff are also really friendly and helpful.

The welsh cakes you buy here are so lovely . They were on one of the British cooking programs on the television a few years ago and looked good on there

We had already eaten elsewhere but couldn't resist the baking here and got some goodies to take away. Superb Bakewell Slice and a really fabulous homemade custard cream. We had already sampled the White chocolate and strawberry Welsh cakes the day before which were delicious. Will go for lunch the next time. Lovely place.
