Came here for breakfast on our way to velocity zip-wire. Breakfast for around 20. They managed great. The food was lovely and tea/coffee. The surroundings are really great and the cakes looked enticing.

This cafe is inspirational - I can't remember ever having eaten anywhere that gives such attention to environmental & sustainability issues - all the food is palm oil free for starters which is a massive achievement in itself. Donations are made to various wildlife and educational charities and the non-meat choices on the menu are many and varied...this is only... More

This is a great and very popular coffee shop with a wide range of snacks, cakes etc. If you are visiting Betws-y-Coed, this is perhaps the best coffee shop in the area to visit. You won't be disappointed.

Lovely shop to relax and have coffee and cake. Set right next to the train platform and part of the station, it is a smashing little shop.

The Alpine is such a lovely little cafe, warm and cosy with its log burner and big sofas, cool and funky with its interior design. Its great to see a cafe that caters for such a wide range of tastes and dietary needs, with its 'free from' home made food, without being ridiculously expensive! My sister and I shared an... More

Lovely cafè which does vegan and vegetarian food. No palm oil which I think isn't advertised enough! £20 for afternoon tea for 2. Got lovely fresh bread sandwiches and homemade chutney. A cream tea scone, meringue, brownie, bara brith, lemon drizzle and matcha green tea cake! could only eat half. Double the amount for half the price compared to what... More
