“Cakes Galore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

A lovely little cake shop which has featured on Best Bakery. Very clean and sandwiches were made up fresh to order. Also, a young man was busy making welsh cakes which gave the shop a wonderful aroma.

“Welsh cakes before your very eyes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We went here for a coffee after the bitter, milky disappointment of the Alpine café. A decent cup of coffee, really friendly service and some great cakes. The welsh cakes which are cooked up on a hot plate in front of you are great.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Called in this little cafe last Sunday and tasted the loveliest welsh cakes ever and will most definitely go there again. Staff were very friendly and excellent customer service.

“Best Welsh Cakes by far!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

I visit this cafe whenever I'm in Betws-y-Coed. The Welsh Cakes are so good (and so obviously made with butter unlike others I've tasted) that I can't resist them.
The coffee served is excellent as is the selection of cakes which my kids and partner have tried. When I first used to visit it was worth a trip just to walk along with a lovely cappuccino and bag of Welsh Cakes. However, when I got there yesterday I was pleasantly surprised to find that they now have a a couple of tables outside to sit at to the right of the shop.
The service is great, really friendly and helpful and the inside of the shop looks so pretty, like a cafe should look.
I would definitely recommend it to someone who is looking for a tea break and something sweet during a day out in Betws. (Betws-y-Coed fan from Liverpool)
