About Us

Caffi Patio Ice Cream Shop & Parlour

We are a family run Ice Cream Parlour on the beach in Llangrannog where we make all our own Ice Cream on site. Caffi Patio is situated on Llangrannog beach itself.

We specialise in making delicious homemade Ice Cream, Milkshakes, Cakes, Filled Baguette and our really filling and delicious Breakfast Rolls.

Order a Take Home Ice Cream box to pick up as you head back to your cottage for the evening and enjoy after your BBQ or supper.

Treat yourself to a Homemade Breakfast Roll after taking your  morning dip, great with a Flat White and a good start to the day. If your still hungry, polish it off with a Homemade Jam Doughnut with Homemade Jam

From Easter until the end of October we normally open from 10.00am until 6pm. Just as lovely are the Winter months, take a walk on the beach and watch the waves breaking over Carreg Bica, and listen to the seagulls crying as they circle overhead.

Watch the surfers out in the bay as they patiently wait to catch the perfect wave. During the Winter months the weather can be particularly stormy and the tides very high, it means opening the doors can something of a challenge!

Opening Times

From Easter until the end of October we open at 10.00am until 6pm and often much later during the summer holidays. Out of School holidays we sometimes close on a Tuesday. Also, if the weather is particularly stormy or the tides  very high it can be something of a challenge for us to be able to open.

Except for the school holidays we sometimes close on a  Tuesday during May, June, September and October.

Parking

There is a small car park on the seafront, this can get very busy, at any time of the year. At the top of the village is a large free car park, from which a Park & Ride minibus operates during the Summer Holidays for a small charge. Children ride free.

This car park is well signposted, and is a 10-minute walk down to the beach.

Dogs

Dogs are restricted to the northernmost side of the main beach (to the Right of the stream when facing the sea) between May and September which is to the right of the stream if facing the sea.

Dogs are also allowed on Cilborth beach which is adjacent and to the North of our main village beach.

Stay Safe on the Beach and in the Sea

Llangrannog beach holds a European Blue Flag, awarded for the cleanliness of its bathing water and beach. The RNLI Lifeguards are stationed here daily from May to September 10.00am – 6pm.
Do take care when entering the water, always check the Lifeguards Beach Safety Flags for the current safety status if you wish to swim or take a trip on a paddleboard.

Llangrannog

Village and Local Area

Often referred to as the Jewel in Wales’s Crown, Llangrannog, is a tiny village with a history of Ship building, Lime Kilns and Corn Mills and is somewhere to enjoy at any time of the year. The village is set at the bottom of the steep valley’s of Afon Hawen and Nant Eisteddfa which run onto the main beach.

Visit the café’s and pubs and pizza house for great food and drink or just sit and watch the sea roll across our beautiful beaches. Stay a night or two in a B & B or in the village hotel. The Wales Coastal Path leads off the beach in two directions to the north and south. Take a walk northwards towards Cwmtudu or New Quay and keep an eye out for the Cardigan bay dolphins, which are frequently sited, especially around the Ynys Lochtyn peninsula. Follow the path to the south and visit the beaches of Penbryn, Tresaith and on to Aberporth. Either way the views are spectacular at any time of the year.

Llangrannog has two sandy beaches facing out into Cardigan Bay. Traeth Mawr is the village beach and adjacent to it when the tide is out is Cilborth. This beach can also be accessed by a short walk up the cliff path and down the steps if the tide is in.

Visit our café’s and pubs for great food and drink or just sit and watch the sea roll across our beautiful beaches. Stay a night or two in a B & B or the Pentre Arms hotel or book a cottage for a few days.

The Wales Coast Path leads off the beach in two directions to the north and south. Take a walk northwards towards Cwmtudu or New Quay, it’s here around the Ynys Lochtyn peninsula that we frequently find the Cardigan Bay dolphins enjoying the sheltered waters. Follow the path to the south and visit the beaches of Penbryn, Tresaith and on to Aberporth.

Either way the views are spectacular at any time of the year.
