A thriving tea room and coffee shop with a plant based focus, found in the bustling riverside town of Betws-y-coed, gateway to the Snowdonia National Park. Boasting over 104 loose leaf teas, a changing menu of tasty breakfast and lunch bites and delicious homemade cakes and patisseries it’s the perfect pitstop when exploring Conwy Valley by bike. You’ll find them located within Betws railway station nearby to the Conwy Valley Railway Museum.

Their menu varies daily but breakfast options during our last visit included a breakfast melt (toasted artisan bread topped with fried onions and a variety of fillings), a traditional veggie, vegan or Welsh breakfast, filled pittas (including a halloumi), granola, porridge and toast.

As for lunch you’ll find their popular filled pittas or hummus chips, alongside jacket potatoes, burgers, sandwiches and toasties – all with plenty of plant based options available.

For those pedalling for something sweet you can’t help notice their decadent cannoli on display; tangerine, lemon & almond, hazelnut and pistachio to name a few. Other homemade specials include a lemon meringue tart, vegan apple, almond & cinnamon cake or rich chocolate brownie. There’s also a large afternoon tea and cream tea option available too.

At weekends due to their prime location it does get rather busy, however inside there’s a good number of tables for small to medium sized groups with a quick turnover and if you’re taking away you’ll find plenty of seating out front or within the nearby park.

The cafe supports an endangered-ape charity in Cameroon through profits and donations raised at the shop, all food is palm oil free and locally sourced where possible.
