Pete’s Eats is a classic Llanberis establishment. Originally opened in the 1970’s, it’s been providing pints of tea and hearty breakfasts to walkers and climbers ever since. Although the founder, Pete Norton finally retired in 2018, its local owners still maintain the name and the quality food.

Many of its customers have depleted energy reserves when they visit and therefore large portions are a major feature of the business! Where national chains might have a standard portion of around 4oz for french fries Pete’s Eats is about 12 oz cut as a half inch chip. There is always a good selection of healthy eating options as well as a number of choices for both vegetarians and vegans.

Pete’s Eats was one of the first establishments to receive the ‘Heartbeat Wales’ award for eating places offering a full range of healthy eating options. Most of what you’ll find on the menu is made and cooked on the premises – soups from fresh produce, cakes from raw ingredients and specials made on the premises and not bought in from a frozen food wholesaler.

The cafe uses use locally sourced bread and rolls for sandwiches, toast and burgers and there is always a good choice of cakes, soups and specials.

Its painted front is difficult to miss right in the heart of the village where you’ll also find basic accommodation options.
