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.

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…

The Conwy Falls café just outside Betws-y-Coed 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 stone's throw away from Conwy Falls, a walk your dog will love.

2. Ebenezer’s Chapel Coffee Shop, Barmouth

Ebenezer’s in the seaside resort of Barmouth is a little different to the café you may come to expect from North Wales! Set in a chapel conversion, this eccentric 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.

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 Dog New

L’s Coffee & Books, situated on Conwy High Street and Llandudno Junction (near the train station), is a lovely little café which is perfect for lunch whilst planning the next route, or just a rest.

Dogs are very welcome at L’s and they even organise a Sunday dog walk around Conwy which ends at L’s for coffee, and a bacon butty!

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.
