Our Food and Drink

A wide variety of tastes and dietary requirements are catered for including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free.

Come and try our fabulous Afternoon Tea – it has to be seen (and tasted!) to be believed.

The Cafe is dog friendly (ask about our ‘sausages for dogs’ loyalty card) and a great place to meet with friends, family or business colleagues. Celebrate a birthday, recover after scaling a mountain or a shopping trip. The decor of the cafe both inside and out is lively and imaginative with its creative wrought-iron artwork and unusual artefacts. 

There is also a permanent art exhibition of works by Jacha Potgieter, comprising of photographs, oil paintings and prints to raise awareness of apes in crisis.

To see more of Jacha’s artwork visit the Platform Galeri in the basement of the platform, showcasing a whole range of conservation artwork.

Why not visit the coffee shop’s brother Hangin’ Pizzeria a little further down the road, for a selection of authentic palm-oil free wood fired pizzas.

Jacha has also designed and created the Alpine Apartments which offer holiday accommodation in Betws-y-Coed.
