Fabulous place in every way. All the family love it - from grandkids to granddad. And there always seem to plenty of local folk there.

I visited this cafe Monday after Trip Advisor recommendations. I had a 2 year old and a 4 year old with me so wasn’t sure what the reception would be like. I needn’t have worried! The cafe was busy but we found a table and...the other diners were really chatty and lovely with my little fellows, one of the men even let the boys have a sit on his tractor as they are just a bit obsessed! The owner was also lovely and chatted with the boys taking their orders and accommodated the extra butter request from one and the sausage on toast with no toast order from the other 😂. We were only in Wales for a couple of nights and called to the cafe again today before heading off. The owners remembered us and even remembered our order. Excellent food, exceptional value and amazing service, I think this will be our regular pit stop in Snowdonia, thanks guys!!More

Popped in for a bacon sandwich and coffee...food was great, as were the guys who run the place. I would recommend and will visit again in the near future.

Best ever breakfast roll in a lovely location. Seating inside and out, excellent choice of food freshly cooked to order. Lovely and friendly owners, will definitely visit again. May have had a new paint job since pictures on site were taken.

Stopped here as good TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Breakfast was cooked to order and was tasty. It is a place that what you see is what you get. Loverly and friendly staff. Was hoping to visit again but ran out of time.

Literally just passed it while on way to Llandudno. Stopped off for a coffee and ordered a cheese toastie. Was “banging” and must of had four different cheeses on it. 😋 Seriously best toastie I’ve ever had. Programmed into SatNav so when near in future...I’m popping back for sure!! 🥪🧀More

We found this place while driving along the A5, Betws-y-Coed was very busy so carried on through. Discovered this place in a layby a couple of miles down the road. Ordered a bacon bap with a mug of coffee. It arrived, freshly cooked, in minutes....If there is a better bacon bap within 20 miles, I would be surprised. I don't know where they get their bacon, it was delicious. A real friendly fellow behind the counter made us feel at home. While we were there people were coming and going all the time, this café comes highly recommended. Will definitely call again.More

We'd read the reviews on this layby caravan and thought we'd call in on our way to our holiday in Caernarfon, oh my word, were we glad that we did. What a brilliant little gem this 'cafe' is. The new owners are real characters and...obviously take great pride in customer care and their food. It's a different caravan to the one in the photo. The menu is flexible, I don't eat egg so asked for it to be put onto my hubby's plate, I do however like lots and lots of butter on my toast, hey presto loads of it arrived without hesitation. Mark the owner and chef personally cooks to order in front of the customer, on a proper cooker with proper utensils, no microwave here. Our breakfast was piping hot (see my photo's and check out the steam coming off it) it was also absolutely gorgeous. Our best ever fried breccy. We can thoroughly recommend this layby caravan to anyone, it's on the Padog Bends just before Betws y Coed on the A5. We've marked the location on our Ordnance Survey map, so next time we're passing by we shall call in for a good belly buster breccy.More

Today (Wednesday) me and Hubby were driving along the main A5 when we saw this quirky caravan cafe on the layby (it's on the same side as the Conwy Falls Cafe). We decided to pull in for a quick lunch. The T-Bar was very small...and basic inside. The sitting down area was full of satisfied customers. There was a friendly fella behind the counter. We ordered 2 x big breakfast baps which were freshly cooked whilst we waited. They each consisted of a large round white bap spread with brown sauce and filled with 1 thick rasher of bacon, 1 sausage split open and 1 juicy fried egg. They cost £3 each (paid cash). You can have extra fillings @ 50 pence each. Because we were eating them outside, he put each of them on a paper plate/serviette and wrapped them in silver foil. They were very tasty and filling. I recommend this stop-off if you want no-frills food at a reasonable price.More
