We visited this lovely little shop/cafe twice during our stay in Snowdonia and on both occasions, it was a delight. I tried the Luxury Hot chocolate made with real chocolate, now powder, and it was delicious. Dark and rich without being too sweet. My wife...was delighted to discover they they served Soya milk so she has a Soya Milkshake and liked it so much that she had a second one! On our second visit, we had the same drinks supplemented this time with a cheese, onion and tomato toastie which was excellent too. Whether you are just looking for a nice cafe or are a card-carrying chocolate lover, I recommend the Riverside Chocolate House - it's well worth a visit. P.S. The cafe doesn't have a toilet but here is a public toilet just across the road - 30p in change required.More

A delightful little stop over surprise. Served the most delicious bara brith I have ever tasted in Wales. Very pleasant surroundings to sit outside and enjoy a break. Lovely staff and great care taken regarding Covid. Will definitely visit again.

We stopped here on route to the Welsh coast and enjoyed hot chocolate with marshmallows in the cafe. Service is excellent and there is a great choice of snacks, cakes and drinks. There is also a small gift shop here. There is a large car...park adjacent to the cafe, as well as a lovely picnic area and public toilets, so this is a great place to stop to break up a journey. Well worth a visit to this unique cafe, which is most definitely a hidden gem.More

Every time I return Home to North Wales I try to visit this little gem. A lovely place to stop for a delicious hot chocolate and to treat myself to some fabulous chocolates! Service is friendly and efficient. We both felt very safe with covid...regulations in place. Particularly liked the way we were to wait outside for a member of staff to come and sit us, given it is such a small little cafe / shop, this is such a sensible way to ensure people aren't wandering around. Thank you!More

The cafe is set back slightly from the main road but has reasonable parking. Staff very friendly. A delicious looking range of tarts & cakes. We went for the healthy salad option which were well presented & tasty. Thoroughly recommended for a quick break.

The best hot chocolate I've ever tasted !!! Pentre Foelas is a handy place for a pit-stop on the A5; easy parking, toilets, and the glorious Chocolate House - will certainly call again, and again !

Owners still as friendly and attentive as they were........ BUT how did they remember everything...about me down to tattoos that I was thinking of getting last year???More

We visited today, and had a fabulous eating experience. I had a corned beef sandwich, loaded with meat, and chocolate orange cake, coffee, and 2 chocolates. The others ate a variety of toasted sandwiches, cakes and pancakes. All was delicious, and well priced, and the...staff were friendly and attentive. I also bought some beautiful artisan chocolates as gifts, and some for myself. I will definitely be visiting again before I leave Wales. Oh. And so very dog friendly, they gave our dog a fresh bowl of water and dog biscuits.More
