If you’re walking up Snowdon along the Llanberis Path on a summer weekend you might be lucky enough to be able to grab a snack from the Halfway House cafe which you’ll find, unsurprisingly, half way up the path. (It’s actually a little bit more than half way along the Llanberis path and in fact refers to its height above sea level which is 542m – halfway up Snowdon).

However don’t be expecting a caramel macchiato or cream frappuccino. It’s more likely to be instant coffee and orange squash. But if you’re gagging for a drink halfway up the highest mountain in Wales then your choices are somewhat limited.

The Halfway House cafe typically stocks a small selection of chocolate bars and sweets, canned and bottled drinks, juice cartons and drinks.

It first opened in 1873 and in its early days was run by local mountain guide Moses Williams. Today it’s owned and managed by local Alwena Jones; read more about her at Wales Online ‘Meet the woman who’ll make you a cuppa in her cafe – halfway up the side of Snowdon‘.

Oh and before you ask, no there are no toilets at the Halfway House!
