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.

A steady flow of smiling customers speaks volumes on this very wet and windy day. The bacon sandwich is more like a gammon meal.

Visited today. Busy as always, queued to order, always a good sign that a place is good. Great atmosphere, very chilled out. Food is fab. So sad this cafe is closing in January. It’s the best cafe around, hope the owners fine a new venue...not to far away.More

We're local and like to pop up to the cafe now and again for a bit of lunch. It can be quite a busy place and during the height of the season can be hard to get a table. It's a no frills place for...walkers and the outdoor enthusiasts so it doesn't sport 5 star luxury. It is however, clean, tidy and well looked after. The food is nice, I always tend to have a jacket potato of some description which is served with a nice salad and choice of topping. Always a good selection of cake on offer here with a good brew. The only slight let down for me as a Welsh speaking local is the lack of bilingual signage and menus. Considering the cafe is in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, it lacks that local, Welsh feel to it.More

Called in for some Welsh rarebit but we’re on the early side so settled for a scone, jam & cream. Freshly cooked and still warm to the touch. Beautiful and they are massive

I live in the area and have been coming here on & off (b'fast/lunch) for three years. Always had decent/good service & the food is very good. I think the cooked breakfasts are great value & quality (best bacon in the area) Lots of walkers...- the path up Moel Siabod commences across the street - & the place has an extensive amount of guide books/maps/equipment for sale. Looks like they now have an EV charger as well.More

I am a local person to the Conwy area and also a local guide for Google, I used to love visiting Siabod cafe as it had such a lovely atmosphere, was clean and great food and friendly staff. I did visit a couple of years...ago and thought it had changed and Today the penny finally dropped, it definitely had changed owners. After standing at the (recent to me), area for waiting, a very pleasant lady told us to sit anywhere and gave us some very grubby & scruffy paper menus, my partner and myself made our choices and I went to order and pay at the counter, the lady owner was okay, not particularly friendly or smiley but I couldnt say she was rude (to me), although i would have given her a talking to had she spoke to me as she spoke to some other local people after me, about not serving mushrooms after 12pm due to health and hygiene reasons!!?? When she then told the ladies "dont even go there"! I found this a bit much, also i had to order toast (at an extra cost), to go with my partners vegie breakfast. The coffees arrived shortly after I sat back down, whereby the tray of these and condiments were just dumped on the table by a very surly staff member without a word, and she walked away, rather than unpack the tray, now don't get me wrong we all have off days but come on I'd just paid shy of £30 for a very mediocre vegie breakfast and ploughman's lunch (with tastless cheese and not the mature variety as advertised, which yes, I will be taking up with my local Trading standards office), at least give us a smile love and pass us our drinks, this was a well deserved treat for us! (Supposedly). By the way the coffees were luke warm and not hot! The toilets, which unfortunately I had to use twice during our time there due to chronic, longterm illness were absolutely disgusting, with old stains and dirt marks on the ladies toilet door, aswell as the "unisex" ones stinking of urine. Not good enough! The chef looked very unkempt in chefs whites, which were more like chefs squeezed into, unironed greys! No beard or head covering, although I'm not positive if this is a requirement. I know furniture and fittings in front of house arent examined during a food hygiene rating but is it acceptable when you have a current award of 5 which was received in November last year, to have loose, trip hazard carpets fitted throughout your venue. Had I have seen and smelt the state of the toilets before ordering and also noticed the chef, there is no way I would have ordered any food here. I think if you are charging the same or in some cases more than the local average price, you need to up your game Siabod, yes, you get people leaving good reviews who have come off the mountains after hours of hiking, cold, wet and hungry, a lot of them would be grateful for anything to fill their bellies, but for a local person looking for a nice place for lunch then it's a big fat no from us!More

They serve really delicious Paninis that are bursting with flavour. The carrot and corriander soup came in a generous bowl with lovely thick slice of white bread and butter. Could not recommend them more. Very friendly and helpful.

Is their nationality important, that could be the tag line of the Moel Siabod because no matter who or what you are, there is always a welcome there.
