I didn't see any inside the café, but they are allowed in the gronds, if on a lead. There is outside seating, so ok if weather is fine.

The Crew with a view. Were located in Caernarfon Airport, Dinas Dinlle. We are blessed with fabulous panoramic views from our cafe. Serving freshly prepared meals, wide variety of cakes, fabulous barista style coffee. We have a great team of staff always willing to help. And all in aid of one of the biggest charities in Wales. The only one of four helicopters within the Wales Air Ambulance is based here with us in sunny North Wales. So not only can you enjoy a wonderful view whilst having a coffee and cake break, but you may be lucky to see our crew take off or land after attending one of their life saving missions. We can cater for functions - buffets, conferneces, etc. We can also cater for any food allergies, i.e, gluten or dairy free. Any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
