‘Nestled on the main street as you pass through the charming little village of Llanbedr in Snowdonia National Park, is Wenallt Deli and Tea Room…’
Starting life as local deli and off licence, Wenallt Deli and Tea Room was refurbished and reopened in August 2016. Keeping the deli counter and the ability to sell wine (yay!), it has expanded its offering to serving breakfasts and lunch. It also has as a range of tasty cakes, local cheeses, meats, and drinks.
I’ve driven past a few times recently and had been keen to stop off. The exterior is so inviting and I was interested to have a closer look. After escaping early from work, I grabbed my husband and drove over, happily finding a parking space right outside (that NEVER happens to me).
We were warmly greeted as soon as we got inside. On entering, we were immediately struck by the gorgeous decor and cosy feel of the Cafe. The owner explained that she and her business partner had done the work themselves.
They’ve certainly made a brilliant job of it. It has a lovely atmosphere with a mixture of lacquer and wooden tables and chair; fat cushions, and a spotless glass deli counter with gleaming cake cases on top, which had Les instantly mesmerised.
We grabbed a table by the cute window box. A few minutes later, we realised that we had just plonked ourselves in rocking chairs. From here, we could look out across the village. We ordered cappuccino (to feed my addiction), and a pot of tea and big fat slice of chocolate cake (to feed my husband’s). He tells me he’s just boosting the local economy, but I don’t buy it.
One of the things I loved about Wenallt Deli and Team Room is that it struck me as the perfect place for me to write on a quiet afternoon. It just has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and cosy interior that draw you in. It’s also great place to stop off for a hot chocolate and donut on a cold Sunday. I’m fairly certain this will happen very soon. Quite possibly tomorrow.
