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.

Very nice little cafe. There is inside seating from the street side, and there is a very nice open patio for outside seating right on the river. Good food. Had a jacket potato and a melt. Very good. Bottled beer. Nice staff. Was rainy the...day we were there so sat inside, but if the weather is better, eat out on their riverside patioMore

After a long walk we were looking for a lunch stop to refuel before we returned to our car. We were really pleased that the cafe was dog friendly, and we found a lovely table in the window. There was a good choice of sandwiches...and jacket potatoes, but we chose the Chicken Burger from the Specials Board. The bun was fresh and tasty, burger golden and crunchy, served with crispy chips and creamy coleslaw. We had traditional lemonade and were really pleased with the quality and food and drink and value for money. We will definitely visit again.More

Stumbled upon this cafe and so glad we did! Cute little cafe with a gift shop section. Two adults two children, we had four meals and four desserts plus drinks. Every single item was amazing. The chips!!!! Get the chips!!! Owners were absolutely lovely and...very accommodating, letting us stay despite it being past their closing time. They just pottered and cleaned as we finished up. So kind. Food and ambience were just perfect. Highly recommend.More

When we saw this place after lunch somewhere else, we sincerely regret not having lunch there. It looked very inviting, and they had authentic meals, not just fast food. But he had here a perfect espresso and discovered the menu for dogs. Nice places outside.

Lovely little coffee place and nice service. The coffee wasn’t too good though….I did ask for the milk in the latte to not be made too hot! Instead I got a hot latte with a jug of cold water to cool it down!!

This is a fantastic cafe with friendly staff, great service and delicious food and coffee. We stopped here for breakfast on one day and it was so good that we stopped for lunch the next! It was a relaxing spot to enjoy some food in...the sunshine and watch the world go by. We had a full Welsh breakfast (the bacon in particular was so thick and tasty) and it kept us going all day until our evening meal. We had a light lunch and enjoyed this very much too. Thank you to the team at Caffi Colwyn and we look forward to visiting again next time we're in Beddgelert!More
