“Great local cafe. Friendly and welcoming independent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Having visited this cafe twice now whilst en route to Betws - y- Coed, I have really enjoyed the food here. When you enter, the furniture does look a little tired and it could do with a freshen up perhaps but it offers a nice homely feel. There is a nice selection of toys for children to play with on the tables and the service was very friendly.

The menu is in both languages and offers lots from sandwich, jacket potato, soup, lasagne, pannini, cakes and coffee to full breakfasts. We each enjoyed every mouthful of the food as was lovely to hear that all the ingredients are sourced locally - the bread from the local bakery was divine with the tuna sandwich.

There is a good choice of drinks too, not just the usual pepsi etc - Homemade lemonade, orange juices, flavoured teas and coffees.

Already looking forward to our next visit so we can call in and enjoy another lovely lunch in a nice cafe which is averagely priced and offers friendly service as well as free wifi!

“No talk of underwear !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

A former lingerie shop called Contessa now a nice little town centre cafe. Very laid back, good service good price and top quality breakfast - 10/10 for bacon, sausage and toast. Good coffee was worth a second mug. Excellent bilingual service - highly recommended - will be visiting again.
