5 Great Beach Cafes To Visit On Anglesey

Muscles-e1628596796425.jpg

Did you know that your holiday home is also a base to explore the culinary delights that the island of Anglesey has to offer? What better way to enjoy Anglesey than eating local produce by what Anglesey is best known for, its coastline, strewn with great examples and here, we feature just a few for your enjoyment. Be warned that opening times are often dependent on both the weather and the availability of local produce so it’s worth checking in before you set off.

Some of these cafe’s and beach huts don’t have websites or a Facebook presence so we’ve done our best to provide links where we can! Of course, you might choose to walk or cycle to any of these from your holiday home, but to give you an idea of distance, we’ve measured it by drive time. 

Lligwy Beach Cafe
Rated the No1. beach in North Wales by The Sunday Times, Lligwy Beach is truly stunning with very shallow waters. The cafe itself serves wonderful home-made pastries, cakes and hot drinks. The neighbouring shacks house wood-fired pizza and an ice-cream parlour.

Licence To Grill

You’ll catch this memorable mobile takeaway on the picturesque Porth Dafarch beach, near Trearddur Bay with lovely spots that are sheltered from the wind. They have the first word in local produce & you can keep up with them via their Facebook where they post which fresh seafood they are serving day to day. Popular dishes include catches of the day such as lobster, dressed crab and mussles. In addition, for those after something meatier they serve locally sourced meats and to finish off if there’s still room, they also have a wide selection of locally baked cheesecakes for dessert.

Ann’s Pantry

Situated in the well known village of Moelfre, close to the beach sits Ann’s Pantry – a quirky cafe that’s been serving fresh local food since 1926. Dog’s are welcome and according to the reviews. The scones served with jam and clotted cream are not to be missed.

Coffee Cups Toll House

And of course, nestled on Silver Bay beach (Rhoscolyn), we have our very own Beach Shack, home to great coffee and snacks during peak times, whenever the sun is shining. 

Finally, even though it’s not, strictly speaking, a beach cafe, we need to mention the Marram Grass where, one could argue, the most recent foodie revolution on Anglesey started. This grassroots caravan site cafe/bistro elevated the Barrie Brothers to stardom.
