We’ve done all the hard work so you don’t have to! Check out our top pics to go for coffee and a slice of cake in North Wales

North Wales offers an abundance of fabulous features; from the rolling green hills to the vibrant seaside, not to mention 4 luxury holiday home resorts, and we’ve explored the area for you to bring you some fantastic hidden gems. Read on to discover our top picks for beautiful tearooms that are off the beaten track, but well worth a visit.

1. Sugarplum Tearoom

One of my favourites! This quirky little tearoom is one you wouldn’t just stumble upon, as it;s so tucked away, but it’s well worth a visit. Everything about this place has been well thought out, from its quirky retro décor to its locally-sourced menu. The food is fab, the coffee is good and the milkshakes are served in retro milk bottles, what more could you want. Oh yes the cake! Save room for cake, it’s amazing!

2. Tea Rooms at the Pet Cemetery

I know what you’re thinking, but it’s an absolute delight! Exceptional service, a beautiful setting and the range of desserts is out of this world! It’s dog-friendly and with lovely touches like quirky salt and pepper pots and fine china, this place is a must-visit. Top-Tip: Order the Welsh Rarebit, but save room for a slice homemade cake – you won’t want to miss out!

3. St Pio’s Café

This place is another favourite! Tucked away not far from the A55, the setting is beautiful. In the grounds of a Catholic Church and former monastery, you don’t have to be religious to appreciate the stunning buildings and lovely walks available from here. The welcome is always warm and the ‘Posh Ploughman’s’ is unmissable!

4 Doris’s Bunker at NCAR

Small but perfectly formed, this little cabin serves lovely food, drinks and cakes. Situated at an animal rescue centre its pet-friendly, the staff are lovely and knowing that profits go to support the charity make the cakes even yummier! It’s one you’d never find without a satnav and definitely worth a visit!

5. Café at Abakhan

Growing up, a family visit to North Wales wasn’t complete without a trip to Abakhan; the ‘big ship’ is still there behind the site like it was all those years ago, but Abakhan’s offering is modern and fresh. The café is great, with hot and cold choices, plus there’s always a mouth-watering cake selection, you’ll be spoilt for choice! (If you can’t decide, I’d recommend the Welsh Cakes). There’s even a play area for the little ones, what more could you want!

Lady M’s Tearoom at Jackson’s

So, it didn’t make the top 5, because it’s not really a hidden gem – the café is large and still almost always full when I visit, so it must be popular! But if you’re not local, maybe you’ve not noticed this lovely boutique garden centre on the country lanes of Flintshire. Give them a visit and you’ll not be disappointed by the choice of cake and the great selection of hot and cold food. I’ll bet you can’t walk through the gift section of the garden centre either without being wowed by this lovely place!
