Visited a few times during a short break. Very friendly owners who are very hands on. Nothing to much trouble. The fact they are not from Wales originally but learning the language is commendable . Would visit again for sure.

I don’t have a sweet tooth but this place is fabulous. The Bara brith and welsh cakes are scrumptious and the service is great.

Pleasant little tea room just around the corner from Harlech Castle. The staff are very friendly and they allow well behaved dogs inside. Excellent choice of hot drinks, including fantastic selection of hot chocolate drinks. We also had the Welsh Rarebit, which was very tasty....More

A cosy cafe with nice views of the nearby castle. Had some Welsh rarebit which was very tasty. Good place to warm up, have a cup or tea and some proper Welsh food. Free wifi and veggie options.
