Coffee and cake at this rather sweet place near the beach in Cricieth. Lovely home made carrot cake for me and delicious Welsh cakes for hubby. There are steep steps to the cafe and disabled access is difficult. Dogs are allowed in certain areas.

We called in twice last week for breakfast. We had the regular fried breakfast and it was great. Delicious, quality bacon, lovely sausage, not greasy and good amounts. And the staff are very helpful.

Sat on their balcony with a cold beer, a view over the sea and a meal if wanted is a nice way to spend the day.

This must have one of the best views in Wales while having a smashing lunch or ice cream. You can take the doggie on the balcony too

Lovely little spot on a clear day but have to say coffee very expensive and not very good. Lots of good coffee shops in Criccieth.
