“Delicious cakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

A great cake & coffee shop among Abergavenny's otherwise distinctly average offering. Try a slice of home-made Bara Brith, served with butter!

“Friendly service delicious cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Odette the owner couldn't be more friendly, the coffee is definitely the best in town, and the place has a lovely vintage theme.
Cakes are to die for !!
There are quite a few coffee shops in town, with more on the way, but "For the love of cake" is definitely our favourite.
Well done Odette and Lewis, keep up the good work.

“Yummy cake and lovely welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We were having a girly weekend away in the Brecons and the rendezvous was Abergavenny. We arrived at lunchtime strolled through town and were instantly attracted to For the Love of Cake thanks to its name!

We somehow managed to squish ourselves, with help from the lovely lady in the shop, around the table outside and had a lovely lunch :-) call me a snob but in this era of gastronomy the days of just having ham sadwiches on the menu are over, so I was thrilled to have something more interesting!

If you are on a diet don't visit because I challenge anyone to reist all the cakes! I bake cakes as a hobby so I am a fussy cake eater but these were scrummy....no sign of dry and/or greasy cakes in sight! worth every fatty gram!

loved it, can't go wrong for a spot of lunch here

“Not just great cake....!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Visited for the first time with my husband recently and will be back again soon hopefully, maybe for afternoon tea!
We started with sandwiches which didnt last long and were made with great quality ingredients (that chilli jam!!! wow) before moving on to tea and cake.
You get china cups and saucers with vintage teapot and a very generous slice of cake. The only problem is choosing which ones to have!!!
The owner (sadly didnt catch her name) is super friendly and we chatted away throughout our visit. I enjoy the pictures that they tweet regularly.... just wish it was a bit closer to home for us (Cardiff) although maybe not... i'd be the size of a house!
