The mountains, valleys, lakes and rivers of Snowdonia are an absolutely wonderful place for walking. And if you are also a dog owner, a little local knowledge about where you and your four-legged friend can enjoy a cafe stop along the way could be really useful.
Not all cafes will accept dogs. So to make life easy for you, we’ve pulled together a useful list of dog-friendly cafes in Snowdonia. This is by no means exhaustive but gives you some ideas around local establishments to try out!
This dog-friendly cafe is set in beautiful settings in Brondanw Gardens in South Snowdonia. Located near the village of Garreg Llanfrothen, just five miles from Porthmadog. Open between April and September, Plas Brondanw Cafe offers a seasonal menu which champions local Welsh produce. And they even have their own unique ice cream flavour – Brandanw Blue, made by Môn ar Lwy of Anglesey!
Designed by Sir William Clough Ellis, who is most famous for creating Portmeirion, this cafe is in a wonderfully relaxed and picturesque setting. Think comfy sofa, dog-friendly and fire roaring in winter months! And sitting outside, with your four-legged friend, looking out over green grass in the Summer. Choose from tasty cooked breakfasts and lunches along with delicious cakes and filling snacks. With good options for all dietary requirements and open all-year-round, Conwy Falls is a fantastic place for filling up in!
With cafes in both Llandudno (Big Prov) and Llandudno Junction (Little Prov), Providero is the place to head for if you are looking for a great cup of coffee or excellent pot of tea. With ethically sourced and traded coffee and tea, artisan hot chocolate and cakes. Providero has a friendly vibe and is dog-friendly to boot!
Climber-friendly, walker-friendly, outdoor enthusiast friendly and dog-friendly, Moel Siobod Cafe is a great place to factor into a day’s walking, biking or exploring in the heart of Snowdonia. It serves really good sized meals, with plenty of choice for all dietary requirements. Their enormous scones are legendary! And they will even make you up a packed lunch to take with you. With a welcoming, warm atmosphere, a large car park and a lovely small photography gallery on the side of the cafe with some awesome pictures of Snowdonia, Moel Siabod Cafe is well worth a visit.
This is a lovely cafe based in a converted schoolhouse. Set outside and you’ll be treated to stunning views over Llyn Padarn. It welcomes well-behaved dogs and there’s plenty of seating, comfy sofas and a stash of board games and books to dip into. Tuck into a choice of tasty breakfasts and a wide range of lunch options, from burgers to burritos, salads, soups and sandwiches. And then there’s always the option of cake! Just five minutes from Llanberis, Lodge Dinorwic is ideally located to cap or collar an adventure into Snowdonia.
