Fantastic food, great coffee, friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. Would highly recommend a visit if you are in the area, or if your not, then its worth the trip simply for lunch and a browse round charming Crickhowell!

We had the Welsh breakfast, afternoon tea and lunch at the Cafe over a week visit to Crickhowell and enjoyed each one. I was very impressed with this cafe.

Called into Number 18 with my sister was very surprised how big it is inside. Beautiful Coffee and fantastic poached egg. Sat downstairs and watched the chefs cook our food very professional and very clean kitchen. All the staff are friendly and the cafe is very clean.
