“Please support this wonderful independent coffee shop”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Popped in today and had the most wonderful coffee, beautifully presented, along with a slice of warm pear, brown butter and chocolate cake. It was absolutely sublime. All then cakes are home made and a real treat. In a world of chain coffee shops we should support the independents - individuality in the face of uniformality.

“Small but beautiful.”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

It was a wet Wednesday afternoon in Abergavenny and we were looking for somewhere to dry off and warm up. At first from the outside the Fig Tree looked like a dress shop, but the tempting cakes in the window were the give away. Inside it is a small but very welcoming place. The atmosphere was great and the coffee was excellent. There is a garden out the back which even in the rain looked like a nice place to sit. Next time we are in Abergavenny it will be coffee and cake in the Fig Tree

“Abergavenny or Paris?”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

If they were smoking Gauloises or drinking absinthe you'd think you were in literary Paris, but this is Monmouthshire. The Fig Tree, or as it is inevitably nicknamed the "Fig Leaf" seems to be the haunt of the writing, talking and publishing folk, but it's not surprising why such time is spent over such a good range of teas and all sorts of coffee. Cakes are good,as proved by a small but changing selection, always fresh. Only problem, it's tiny so if it's full of the literati where can you go for as a good a coffee?

“Absolutely amazing cakes and wonderful coffee”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

One of the best coffee shops I've visited, anytime, anywhere. A weekday afternoon in late April, my husband and I had lovely decaf lattes, and a slice of cake each - the coffee was terrific, the cakes were fresh, moist, rich, just sweet enough without being too much so. I really wish we had a place this good closer to home. Well done Fig Tree!
