Lovely ice cream as usual. Lots of different flavours and variety which is always nice. Although sometimes too much, so many to choose from! Beautiful location and Amazon scenery.

I was enjoying a sunny day in Betws so I decided to treat myself to something sweet. After much deliberation (too much choice), I opted for the standard cone topped with a small scoop of coconut flavoured ice cream. It cost £2.20 which I thought was a bit pricey. I went across to the green opposite, sat in the sunshine,... More

Stopped for a refuel before walking back to our campsite which was about a mile outside the town, very glad we did. Lovely coffee and a fresh tasty scone with jam. Delicious. Thanks

Not a huge a point of choice at Betws-Y-Coed but if you fancy a decent icecream and cone this is probably the best in the area. Choice isn't bad, but there could be more considering its only selling icecream and hot drinks but perhaps I'm just greedy for choice. Cones and icecream good though, my family loved it.

We stopped by this lovely little place on a cold rainy Sunday afternoon. The biggest plus about this place was they are dog-friendly which is a huge bonus. The staff were friendly and helpful regarding the drinks menu, and the ice-cream (of which there many flavours to choose from) was delicious.

A lovely place to visit. Pretty village clean and tidy. A nice little chip shop quite busy but they are fast. And worth the small wait. Plenty of seating or theres a large grassy park opposite.

Stopped here for a cup of coffee on our way home after a good day out. The young man on duty ignored us when we went in and carried on pottering about doing noting in particular. He was polite enough when we went over to the counter for service. But a friendly hello would have perhaps given it a 4

Coffee great but still poor choice of cake. Only scones. Spoiled by staff still keeping glove on to take money after serving ice cream and then using same glove. Much better layout, cosy, and staff friendly
