Delicious cake selection at Y Crochan cafe

Enjoy a delicious selection of locally baked cakes at Y Crochan cafe


Y Crochan is light, bright and modern with views all around of the densely wooded hillsides of the Corris valley which hide a once booming slate mining industry.

Our menu uses delicious ingredients which have been grown, reared and locally produced. Call in for morning coffee, lunches and afternoon tea; we serve hot and cold food, delicious home made cakes and drinks throughout the day.

Y Crochan seats up to 80 with an additional outdoor seating area which overlooks our small children's play area, ideal for keeping an eye on your little ones. High chairs and a bottle warming facility are available.

Y Crochan cafe is next to the King Arthur's Labyrinth underground adventure, 9 Corris Craft Centre studios, Corris Mine Explorers and Lost Legends of the Stone Circle visitor attractions. Next door to Y Crochan is a Welsh Food and Drink shop where you'll find shelves stocked with a tempting range of items; all of which have been produced right here in Wales.
