We know how important your four-legged friends can be to you, and often, you will want to take your dog with you on holiday. In North Wales, you not only have a huge range of dog walks, from beaches, to forests, to mountains, but there is also many dog-friendly cafés for you (and your dog) to enjoy some welsh delicacies after a long days walking!
We’ve found some of the best dog-friendly cafes in North Wales for you to visit on your next week away. Take a look…
1. Conwy Falls Café, Conwy
The Conwy Falls café has a wonderful selection of meals, including vegan and vegetarian. In the winter months, Conwy Falls has a log burner to warm you up after an afternoon out in the fresh air. Plus, with a range of home-made cakes available daily, you’re in for a real treat! If the weathers nice, you can sit in an outside area, just a stones-throw away from Conwy Falls, a walk your dog will love!
2. Ebenezer’s Chapel Coffee Shop, Barmouth
Ebenezer’s is a little different to the café you may come to expect from North Wales! Set in a chapel conversion, this eccentric little spot sells a range of teas, coffees, snacks as well as a range of unusual crafts and sculptures. We don’t want to give too much away, but it’s well worth a trip if you’re in the area! Plus, it’s dog friendly so your fluffy friend can come too!
3. Moel Siabod Café, Capel Curig
Known as being a hub for walkers and bikers, Moel Siabod café offers the perfect place to relax after a long day exploring. Capel Curig is a base for many mountain walks, from easy to challenging, so it is a great location for families and hikers alike. Moel Siabod has it all, from breakfasts, to warming lunches and a full dinner menu, they even offer a packed lunch for refuelling on the go. They also provide a lot of expertise and guidance for enjoying the area which can be helpful for those who are visiting for the first time, and will be more than happy to tell you all the best dog walks, too!
4. L’s Coffee and Books, Conwy
L’s Coffee and Books, situated on the Conwy high street, is a lovely little café which is perfect for lunch whilst planning the next route or just a rest. Dogs are very welcome in L’s and they even organise a Sunday walk around Conwy for dogs (and their owners!) which ends at L’s for coffee, and a bacon butty! An idyllic Sunday spot!
5. Pen y Ceunant Isaf, Snowdonia Image Source
Also known as Snowdon Café*, the Pen y Ceunant Isaf can be found on the lower slopes of the Llanberis path on Snowdon. If you’re heading down on this route, it’s well worth a visit! Plus, if you have your dog with you they are more than welcome, too! A very homely café, Pen y Ceunant Isaf offers a range of hot drinks and welcomes you to bring your own food to enjoy with it – perhaps a space to enjoy your picnic with a warm drink if you get caught in the rain!
*This is not the café at the summit.
