I often visit Nicholls Coffee shop for a lunchtime snack and end up having a meal. The food is all locally sourced and is of good quality. Its popularity is evident in the number of people queuing for a seat, even mid-week. I always visit with my daughter, who is a vegetarian and there are always several well- conceived items, a rarity in most restaurants that often offer nothing more imaginative than a quiche. This week's vegetables were exceptional, in fact, I could have eaten a whole plate of the red cabbage. There is a limited, but good range of desserts, all of which are locally made.

At the back of Nicholls in Abergavenny is a wonderful, modern, comfortable restaurant, Its an absolute must to visit if you are in the area or even a place worth a special visit. My husband and myself make this a regular treat for ourselves. Everything is freshly prepared and locally sourced. The staff are professional and really polite and friendly. You really feel spoiled. We had eggs Benedict and coffee. The coffee comes with a little heart shaped, home made shortbread biscuit on the side. It was a pretty little touch. The whole place is so pretty, modern with contemporary décor. The toilets are clean, fresh and very smart. This is so much more than a department store cafe. More Harrods than Tesco.

Having moved to Wales fairly recently and while out shopping in Abergavenny I came across Nicholls Coffee Shop tucked away at the back of the department store. Waitress service and properly served. Great food and nice for a morning coffee or afternoon tea too. We go everytime we go to Abergavenny now and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend you try it and I'm sure you won't be disappointed either.

Tucked away at the rear of the department store, this coffee shop has comfortable seating and a relaxing ambience. The menu is varied and extensive, including both cooked and cold snacks & lunches, great cakes to accompany a coffee and a range of drinks to suit all tastes.

With so many gastronomic choices in this area, you might not consider a department store cafe.Yet, everytime that I have eaten here I have been impresessed.
The decor has been renewed, it is light and airy.The menu is more snack than main meal, but varied. Ingrediants are locally sourced and it shows.The cooking and presentation are both consistent and good. Finally, the service is both efficient and friendly , the result of good teamwork.Everyone is well presented and attentive.
