Since first opening in 1927, Cadwaladers has built an impressive reputation. Over nine decades their ice cream has become famous for its rich flavour and luxurious texture. From humble beginnings as a family run general store in Criccieth, the company quickly grew thanks to the success of Hannah Cadwaladers' original vanilla ice cream recipe - a closely held secret to this day. Perhaps even more impressive is that the recipe is 93 per cent fat-free, so you needn't feel guilty for indulging. Flavours include familiar favourites like vanilla, strawberry and mint choc-chip, as well as creative options like salted caramel popcorn and pecan and caramel swirl. The selection is updated seasonally and each café stocks a different combination. There are several venues dotted across Wales and England, so there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy Cadwalader's offering.
As well as serving ice cream in cones by the scoop, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy it. You can, for instance, spoil yourself with a sundae such as the hot muffi n melt, strawberry meringue tower or classic Knickerbocker Glory, or indulge in a refreshing ice cream cocktail, smoothie, iced tea or milkshake. If you prefer hot drinks, the tea and coffee options won't disappoint. Cadwaladers' espresso incorporates a special blend of Mexican Arabica and Tanzanian Robusta beans for a deliciously rich and smooth cup, and each café stocks a range of fragrant loose-leaf teas from across the globe, including a delicious African-blend black breakfast tea. Don't miss out on the coffee liqueurs or chai tea latte either, or the Italian-recipe hot chocolate.
Cadwaladers also serves a range of delicious breakfasts, as well as freshly prepared panini, baked potatoes, sandwiches and cakes to eat in or take away, and welcomes families and four-legged friends. All of this, coupled with excellent customer service, makes Cadwaladers a great choice for fun times with family and friends
