We enjoy coffee or hot chocolate at Cafe Contessa after a walk on the footpath from Trefriw and some time to enjoy views of River Conwy. Small and cozy, with friendly service, we recommended it highly. When I've had a toasted teacake with my hot chocolate or something from their delightful lunch menu, everything has been delicious.

We popped in when we visited Llanrwst and was pleasantly surprised but the quality of coffee, certainly not your standard instant we have come to expect. The service was pleasant and quick. Will return the next time we visit.

Eating here was an absolute delight. Popped into LLanwrst for a couple of hours whilst visiting family in the area and made a lucky decision to eat at the Cafe Contessa. I had the most perfect welsh rarebit for lunch. It was made with local ale and leeks and topped with bacon and perfectly poached eggs. It was so tasty!... More

In my opinion, this is the best place to have breakfest in the whole of North Wales, the produce is amazing, and the staff are very on the ball. Would even travel from England each weekend, just to have breakfast here.
