It was New Year's Day and there were a few people about but three staff. We hung around for about 10 minutes before anyone came near us. No eye contact or any greeting at all. Once we were served, service was quick and the food and coffee good. We chose a local place over the Costa nearby, and I regretted... More

Had a bit of a revamp and still as comfortable as ever. Coffee superb and this time treated myself to a pancake concoction. Waitress really appeared to enjoy creating these confections and it was delish!

Cadwaladers is probably best known for its Ice cream, though I did not sample that this time - it was not really the time of year for it. However, it's a nice place and I liked their coffee. I did not try the food here, but we did have a nice lunch at their branch in Criccieth.

My happy other half sampled the delights of a strawberries, ice cream and meringue dish with lashings of sauce! the staff were knowledgeable about their products not that he needed convincing to try one The portion was huge and he thoroughly enjoyed...

Saw people eating outside so had to give it a try.We had two large sundaes,and they were to die for.They had a large selection of flavours ,and a variety of ways you could have the ice cream presented.If you like ice cream and who doesn't then this is the place to go.

The ice dream here is very good with lots of lovely flavours, cones & tubs to chose from. They also serve other cakes and ready made sandwiches. The sandwiches are nicely presented but that's where it ends. It's a bit like the popular coffee shops where they come pre packaged and just get toasted as required. Go for the ice... More
