I dropped into this cute little enterprise on a steaming hot day in search of some refuge from the heat, a cold drink and a nice time to pass until my coach tour would take off again from Brecon. I got all of that, a nice chat with the owners and the best Welsh Cakes I've ever had. It was too hot to dare taking one or two of the fabulous looking cupcakes along so I must return when it's less hot and I'm craving something sweet from the oven! The interior design is a bit like Barbie gone polka dots, really sweet. Definitely worth stopping by or seeking out when you are in the area, just around the corner from the boat trip place.

Popped in for cake & tea whilst killing some time in Brecon & very glad we did. All fresh baked on site & lovely & moist! Nice selection of flavours despite having had a busy morning & running low. Scones were in the oven but unfortunately we had to leave before they were ready. Will definitely go back if we're in the area again :)

Charming shop, nice people, and the best cupcakes we have ever tasted. Children are making sure cupcakes disappear fast.

We were in Brecon on honeymoon and came here 3 times in the week! The cakes were beautiful - I'd specify one to try, but they were all delicious.

The staff working in there (one man and one woman), presumably the owners, were a real delight to talk to - so friendly.
