CONWY. Coffee, Bacon Roll And Window Shopping.

Following on from a stroll around the town’s walls it was time to search out something to eat. I wasn’t in the mood for the full on sit down with starched napkin and the best silver but just something to keep me going. I had done a little bit of research before heading out and L’s Coffee & Bookshop caught my eye. You’re a bit spoiled for choice on the coffee/ food front in Conwy so it was a case of either mull it over for ever or dive in and pick one. This time it was L’s, I will work my way around the other options on future visits.

CONWY. Tucked into the High Street is L’s Coffee and Bookshop, quite an elegant combination.

Being a creature of simple tastes and the breakfast menu still running, I opted for a favourite, a bacon roll. I am aware of all the healthy options but I like to treat myself from time to time, bacon roll it was, end of discussion. L’s has a convivial atmosphere, cosy without being cramped, good coffee and plenty bacon on the roll equals happy blogger.

Contented after my break, I decided to explore Conwy some more, this time at street level. Protected and constrained by the walls, the streets snake here and there and occasionally burst out into a square or a green. If you fancy a game of hide and seek, I would put Conwy very much towards the top of the list.
