Ice Cream

The Cadwaladers Ice Cream story began in 1927. The Cadwalader family lived in Criccieth in Gwynedd, North Wales and sold their closely guarded secret recipe Vanilla ice cream, from the window of their CrIccieth general store. The recipe is a traditional 93% fat free gelato recipe from Hannah Cadwaladers’ 1927 recipe and has a wonderfully soft and rich flavour. To ensure that the unique flavour remains, the recipe is regularly and continuously taste tested by loyal customers, including some who started enjoying Cadwaladers vanilla ice cream in the 1930’s. Cadwaladers also offer Gluten Free and Dairy Free (suitable for vegans) ice cream flavours including other flavours which change throughout the year. However we always stock our famous vanilla ice cream in all our stores and this is also used in our delicious cold drinks and tempting sundaes.

Coffee & Hot Drinks

Here at Cadwaladers we understand that there is an art to producing the best in hot beverages. This is why we only serve the best products for our customers. We work closely with our supplier to ensure the same quality and pride we put in our ice cream shines through in our drinks. Our coffee and loose leaf tea is bespoke, made to our own special recipe 28/3. You can purchase this in store in our café along with our other delicious herbal and fruit loose leaf teas.

Cadwaladers is always looking to be more eco-friendly and if you bring in your own hot drinks mug (or use our own) we will give you 20p worth of loyalty points every time you decide to reuse. PLUS we will clean your mug for you, so you don’t have to!


At Cadwaladers we believe that it’s important for our food to taste as good as it looks. That’s why we have taken care to select the best of the best using locally sourced products. Warm up with our delicious chilli con carne or enjoy the crunch of a toasted Panini. We have scrumptious gluten free soup available as well as our NEW freshly baked 10” Margherita Pizza which is also available dairy-free and Vegan!
Whether you tuck into a pancake stack for breakfast or grab a quick lunch, our food menu is available all day so you don’t miss out!
