Delightful

My dad and I popped in here for lunch after a bit of sightseeing when I was back in Wales visiting family. I remembered how friendly the Welsh are, lovely friendly staff. Such a cute cafe and great Welsh rebbit. Enjoy a good coffee and was so tempted by the delishus looking cakes but behaved myself!

This is the place to go for a sublime breakfast and cakes to die for....you need to go early as it gets full very quickly.

Visiting Abergavenny, we happened upon this place and we are glad we did. Service was friendly and prompt - as soon as a table came free it was cleared for us. Our jacket potatoes had generous fillings and salad. Cakes looked fantastic but no room alas. If you want identikit, bland offerings - go elsewhere. This place has a nice... More

We went in to get a take away cake, and because we had chosen Banoffee pie, which would go everywhere, they gave it to us to take away on a plate, a proper china plate! The best, kindest service ever. And then we went back for pancakes, bacon and maple syrup the next day and it was delicious. I couldn't... More

You think you are going to this cafe for a snack. Well, think again! Whatever you choose from the menu the portions are going to be very generous but the staff are very accommodating and have told me they will do child portions on request, which you may want to do if you want to leave room for one of...

Came here for a fabulous breakfast. Pancakes with crispy bacon and scrambled eggs. Went back for a way above starbucks type coffee. Now just finished an exquisite parsnip soup with roasted parsnip curls and a swirl of cream on top. With a fresh granary baguette and real butter. I'd come back for supper if it was open. Best cafe in... More

Great home cooked food from a cute, bustling welsh cafe - we had thai chicken curry, baked potato with beans and couldn't resist a yummy victoria sponge for dessert. Good coffee too. We'll be back soon!

Fab cafe, colourful decor, great lighting and a menu that offers light or fuller food. Owner loves a chat but it's clear the focus on service and cake and coffee is great.

We always come to the cafe when we are in Abergavenny. It can be busy on a Saturday afternoon but it is worth hanging around to get a table. The decor is great, the service very friendly and the food good. What more can you want?

A lovely warm little cafe. Great ambiance and range on offer from coffee and cakes (oh such goooooooood cakes, like ruffles and choc orange, yum) to light lunches. If this was in the town centre rather than on Cross St then it would be mobbed so I guess I'm happy it isn't!
