Lovely quick stop today for tea, coffee and cakes. Great coffee, tasty bara brith and delicious cream and jam scones. Staff were exceptionally friendly. The view to Harlech castle from the rear patio was stunning.

We visited the castle which is impressive and stood the test of time. Visited Cemlyn Tea Shop for a coffee and hot chocolate and the most delicious Gluten Free Billionaire Tiffin, the staff are fab too. A must when at the castle.

After getting soaked visiting the castle we stumbled across the cafe. We had a lovely cup of coffee and Welsh cakes which were gorgeous. They had a good selection of cakes and drinks and the service was very good. Recommend.
