Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stopped for a drink and cake on the way up the Watkins paths then came back for lunch when we came back down. Lovely place, run by lovely people and serving lovely food!

Travelled here for lunch after reading the reviews and it did not disappoint!! The burger was by far the best burger I've eaten in years. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was epic. Definitely worth a visit.

First time coming here in a while i.e since change in ownership, and it did not disappoint. Food was fantastic, portions were fab and the service (particularly from the young man whose name I forget - ironic as it was very memorable) was wonderful! We've...been here many a time before and the food and service has remained fantastic since change in ownership. On a miserable, rainy day in Nant Gwynant the food and service was a wonderful tonic.i had the venison burger with charred peaches, the peaches were not what I expected and we're PERFECT accompaniment! Diolch Mawr!More

Lovely little family run business, perfect if you wish to fuel up before a hike or need to refuel after! Brilliant food with something for everyone (I had something off the special menu - chips, chicken and stuffing baguette), staff were great with a particular...shoutout to the young man who served us and made sure our food was okay, very polite, friendly and welcoming.

Myself and my family had the pleasure of visiting this fantastic place for breakfast. The people here are very welcoming and friendly. We had breakfast and the food was just as good as the people who work here. My girls ( 11 & 15 )...were over the moon with their fluffy pancakes and Biscoff French toast. We can’t recommend it enough and we will be back next year when we climb Snowdon again. Thank you Caffi Gwynant team.More

We went for vegan options and were not disappointed. I had lovely spring rolls with coleslaw and salad, and my husband had a 'cheese' toasty with soup. The chef told us about the options not listed on the menu, and said they would be able...to modify most things if needed. We ate everything too quickly to be able to leave photos! Also a nice setting in an old chapel in Snowdonia. We're staying nearby in a little cottage and are looking forward to coming back to try the other options during our stay.More

Been here lots of times in the past while out walking. Different owners and different standard of care. We called in today after a long walk and looking forward to our usual coffee. Although still serving people food at their tables, when I asked if...we could just have 2 coffees the answer was a resounding NO we are closed. It was 3.50pm. We would have been happy with a take out coffee but again the answer was no. Obviously the people who were still eating would have been there longer than 10 minutes and I understand they didn't want to take food orders but would it really have been that much trouble to make 2 coffees. In g Future we will give our custom to the Prince Llewellyn in Beddgellert who even when really busy greet their customers with a warm welcome and great service. Caffi Gwynant only opens 4 days a week and you would think they would be glad of the custom. Obviously not!More

We were staying at the campsite next door and cam here a couple of times. In short, great food, at a fair price point, and great service. What's not to like. I'll be back next time I'm in the area.
