A little off the beaten track but worthy of a visit for nice food well presented by helpful staff. Hot baguettes were the order of the day for my guests and I and all were generous portions and nicely presented. I'm sure an excellent place for a break during a walk with outside seating for visitors with animals.

With welcoming, friendly staff and a nice, pleasant atmosphere, I was pleased to find that the food lives up to the rest of the place! I had the lamb burger with chips - wow! Served on a sourdough bun (and... More

When walking the circular route around Lake Padern from Llanberis heading north, at first, do make the slight diversion to Brynrefail for coffee, cake and a comfort break. Excellent - the meals looked good and the staff were great

A bit difficult to find but well worth finding. The food is home made and delicious and they can also cater for large parties. Enjoyed a 70 the birthday here for a member of the family here several years ago and the food was fantastic. Highly recommended.

Been coming to Caban cafe for many years and never been disappointed. Had 3 lovely pancakes with Wavells bacon and plenty of syrup. Couldn't resist but to have a rocky road afterwards. The waitress was lovely and we (my mum and I) were served very quickly that we were very impressed. We were also intrigued that one of the waitresses... More
