By far and away the worst toasted sandwiches ever!!!! I don't even think they were actually toasted, just warmed through as they were still like white soft bread on the one side. Iced frappe no where near as nice as Mc Donald's. Surroundings reasonably pleasant. Will definitely not be going there for a snack in future.

long queues, they take so long to make a cup of coffe and have no sense of urgency, rather a complacent way of thinking and it shows.
Will not go there again....

M and S café in Cwmbran is a firm favourite with me. I have coffee and sometimes a snack a couple of times a week on average. Toasted sandwiches and tea cakes are great and the former are especially well priced. There is, however, a problem with the speed of service and it is something of a standing joke amongst regulars. The staff work flat out but still they cannot deliver nearly fast enough and I would never go there if I was in a rush.

Good variety of food, if your eating lunch late you get better chance of a table. A little over priced but its quality food/drink.

Popped into the cafe in the Cwmbran . . . one of the hot days.
Only wanted coffee and perhaps a cake - went to coffee bar and obviously missed any cakes (probably for the best) but there was a huge queue by the hot food and they must have been there. Waited to get served and one person totally ignored me, on enquiring at the till the lady took my order and then gave it to the person who had been ignoring me . . . . clearly they have a process and thou shalt not be flexible and help the customer and speed up service. So by now a huge queue developed of people wanting coffee and/or to pay fortunately i was at the front. Eventually got coffee and went outside to sit amongst the uncleaned tables and flutteringing wrappers.
Even when staff came out to deliver food they left the trays.
So all in all a disappointing experience - more greasy spoon than cafe really.
Cant think of any reason that i would be attracted back
