I like ice cream and this is as good as it gets. Different flavours are mixed in with traditional favourites. The que moves quickly and the product is quality.

We were a group of 7 , including a 3 year old, turning up late afternoon weekday out of season, and were made very welcome.The small one was happy with the duplo table- very thoughtful, as small children really welcome familiar play when they are on holiday and so much is out of the ordinary for them. There is a... More

We stopped in here for a light late lunch after completing a four hour trek. The service was friendly and the food freshly made. Not cheap but reasonable considering the location. The free Wi Fi worked perfectly. Good.

Best ice-cream shop I have ever been to. A vast range of flavours to choose from, the proprietor ha won many awards for his ice-cream. Very tasty, experience and chill a while.

Glaslyn Ices is by far the best ice cream shop parlour around. My family and I have been going to North Wales for over 30 years, and every single trip has to involve at least one visit to Glaslyn Ices (if not several). The location by the river and walk is perfect, but no-one can argue with the quality and... More

Visited Beddgelert on 29/9/16. Was looking for somewhere for lunch and visited a nearby pub but noticed a "No Dogs" sign above the door. Went a little further up the road and saw this café. We were very pleased that we did as the vegetarian choice here was quite good, not just the "take it or leave it" choice that... More

Generous portions of delicious food, I had quiche with salad and my partner had the welsh black beef burger with chips and salad - all very nice and at a very... More

Me and my family have been coming back to this restaurant for years and years, since we were young children. The staff are very friendly and there is a pleasant.
