Welcome to Characters Teahouse and Hot Stone Restaurant. A secret to be found. Tucked away in a side street we are not easy to find. But when you do you are in for a big surprise. We are different to say the least..You could say quirky and you would be right. Old second hand china, cups, saucers, plates, glasses, furniture etc all bought from charity shops and completely mismatched giving the place character and ambiance hence the name Characters. Food is wholesome and unpretentious ,soups, sandwiches, hand made cakes & scones of different flavours forming the basis of our now famous Afternoon Tea. Accompanied by proper loose leaf tea & coffee of your choice we are open daytime 11am to 4pm Monday
US$5 - US$28

Hostess owner was very friendly, food was OK but nothing special. Although the mismatch of every piece of China is quirky, some pieces had seen better days. The basin in the lavatory was dirty and it looked as though it hadn’t been attended to for...several days, which made me concerned about the overall cleanliness. As my husband commented, “ there are far better cafes elsewhere in the town”More

This is a lovely place for a light meal, full of character with pleasant helpful staff. Very quick service as well. As we were staying across the road we would have liked it to be open every day! Pay a visit between wednesday and Friday...and you won't be disappointed.More

We absolutely loved our afternoon tea at Characters. I would definitely recommend. Staff were very attentive and the food was fresh. Will be visiting again next time I visit Llandudno.

Very hospitable owners and friendly too. Lovely eclectic mix of crockery with a kind of 50's ambience. Superb beverages and delicious scones, some with different flavours - like Turkish Delight and Ginger, the latter I particularly enjoyed. Great for a cream tea or afternoon tea....Loved this place. Thank you.More

We stopped here for lunch and some cake whilst exploring Llandudno and what a lovely experience we had! The staff are all so friendly and the service was top notch! All the food was lovely, I had a jacket potato which is one of the...best I've had. The cakes are the main show though, I could have happily had more than one! My partner had some choc chip scones and I'm told they were also delicious. Would deffs recommend for a light lunch or afternoon tea.More

We’ve been here a couple of times and the welcome is always friendly. A cosy, comfy tea room near the coast. Serves a good range of cakes and nice tea/coffee. Staff are always friendly and go out of their way to help you. Very reasonably...priced.More

They have tables outside, so I'm sure the staff will allow dogs outside.
