Visited with family on a rainy day. The cafe is in an ideal location overlooking the beach. The menu was basic, which matched the food. The food was a little over priced and if the staff were a little more friendly and forth coming then they may have had a better rating . The place was empty, which may have... More

I was served a good breakfast, but my partner ordered a bacon bap. It was hardly cooked and contained more fat than bacon! Upon pointing this out, a fresh bap with 'proper' bacon was brought and an apology given.

Came out to Criccieth for a walk in the sunshine and breakfast. Chose to go to Blue China because of its fantastic location. Food was bland and very overpriced for cheap produce. Waitress left a couple waiting over 10 minutes for sugar for their drinks! Unfriendly staff. Location is perfect. Food and the place itself not perfect!

We visited Blue China after a recommendation from a local, and were very impressed with the full English breakfast and the super speedy service. Great sea views over Criccieth sat outside in the sunshine :)

I visited with my husband and another couple for a snack after arriving in Criccieth and following a very long journey. We were given a great welcome and settled down to enjoy scrummy jam and cream scones and tea / coffee. One member of our party ordered eggs on toast as he does not eat cream and he said it... More

These tea rooms have a lovely sea view and provided good quality food and the best decaffeinated tea i have ever tasted. Would recommend a visit here.

We stopped here for a coffee and cake to soak up the views. It was a nice cafe with a veranda set high off the street so you could look out and see the beach. The staff were pleasant seating was a little uncomfy on the plastic chairs but it was what is was. The Coffee was good not bitter... More

Unfortunately only stopped for morning coffee but this is an excellent café and we really wished we were having lunch there. Very envious of what neighbouring tables were having and scones and cakes were huge!
