Caffi Castell Harlech Opens its doors!Published on 10 Sep 2015 by Gwion Llwyd
The August bank holiday saw Caffi Castell Harlech open its doors to a great reception! The cafe is part of the fantastic new information center directly opposite Harlech Castle. With lots of glass and metal, this modern take on the old hotel works really well and has given Harlech a great injection of life.
The cafe has been taken on by my good friend Freya. But this article isn’t biased, honest! It really is brilliant. Ask anyone. 😉
So what to expect from a visit to the new establishment? Firstly the views are quite simply breathtaking. Not only are you up close to an incredible view of the castle, but the surrounding Snowdonia landscape is stunning.
The food is all based on good, wholesome home-cooked fare which, where possible, is all made from locally sourced produce. The star of the menu has to be the fish platter which is a delicious mix of shell on prawns, smoked salmon, smoked mackerel pate and smoked trout all served with a salad and crusty bread. Theres a fine selection of tea and coffe naturally and the home made cake selection is out of this world. This includes the famous Llew Glas scones, a delightful victoria sponge and a very decadant salted caramel cake.
