Great food and a prompt service. Their sausage and black pudding rolls are just delightful, everything is also reasonably priced.

Small sandwich cellar with great service and a wide selection of tasty fresh fillings, people travel far and wide for their breakfast rolls. Really friendly staff!

Locals use this sandwich bar, and I don't blame them. There is a wide choice of fillings, bread and alternatives (such as burgers). My favourite is sausage and black pudding!

I was part of a party of 3 who visited Hay on the 07/09/2016 and had lunch. The food taken was a mix of cooked bacon, cheese on toast and sandwiches washed down with mugs of tea. We had to wait a bit because the food was freshly prepared and the result was well worth the short wait. Tasty food,... More

On the walk way to town centre from main car park a nice little place to sit outside and have a snack or to pick up a take away sandwich. Good quality and good prices

This is a lovely little cafe in Hay on Wye. We had a jacket potato and a panini, would definitely recommend both (especially jacket potato with brie and bacon - delicious!). Coffees were good too. This is honest and tasty food at very decent prices (£3.50 for jacket potato, £2.70 for soup with bread etc.) and I would definitely return... More

two really nice people (Mom and daughter) who provide excellent food at a reasonable price. Always stop there for a BLT - almost worth going to Hay just for that

This tiny little cafe deserves fulsome praise as the food is very tasty, filling and reasonably priced. The ham salad baguette was absolutely packed and tuna bap very fresh. We were presented with a big pot of tea which was a refreshing change from some of the meagre dinky cups of the beverage we have been given at other places... More
