Below are a selection of my favourite places to eat each with their own character, ambience and plus points:

CAFES DESCRIPTION DIRECTIONS
Bistro Moelwyn

Blaenau Ffestiniog
This restaurant has views of the Moelwyn mountains, hence its name. The menu is designed to work with seasonal produce, which is organic where possible and sourced from local retailers and farmers, ensuring a Welsh flavour to the dishes.

Special events and music at times.

Croesor Cafe

Bryngelynnen farm
Croesor
A beautiful café has been created by the villagers as phase one of a plan to convert the old Bryngelynnen farm into a centre for both the walkers and the community. Here you can relax beside an inglenook fireplace with a slice of delicious homemade cake and tea or a soup served by one of the volunteers.

The tasteful restoration using traditional materials and has won the 2007 Rural Award from CPRW - The Campaign for the Preservation of Rural Wales (Meirionnydd). An additional award was presented for traditional slate fencing.
