Actually part of Talybont Stores & Post Office. We ended up here, as we were uninspired with the choice that was open in Brecon itself on a Monday and drove past here and decided to stop. There is a reasonable choice of food - many seemed to go for soup or all day breakfast. We opted for toasted sandwiches, which... More

While we were moored up in Talybont, we stopped here for a lovely cooked breakfast with good toast and a nice cuppa.

Stopped at this lovely spot on a Sunday walk. Great homemade food and cakes. Lovely people who served us who had great local knowledge about where to go. Will visit again when in the area.

We have used this cafe for the last 9 years on a regular basis enjoying its usually good food and friendly excellent service by the staff, although standards have been gradually dropping lately, which is a shame. However, we stopped for lunch here as we normally do during our walk along the Breco/Monmouth canal on the 1/9/16. The cheese ploughmans... More

The shop attached, is stocked with all the essentials and more. There is even the local post office. Thanks to all who make this establishment what it... More

Stopped here for a well earned drink at the end of a walk along the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal from Llangynidr. Perfect location, right by the canal. Located opposite the bus stop which was handy too. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Lovely selection of cakes, and a nice hot cuppa, all served with a smile.

This is a pleasant cafe and the food is above average.We enjoyed our lasagne and home made cake and crumble. Prices at the upper end for a cafe. All looks very clean. The service is laid back to the point of sleep and the coffee comes from a bean to cup machine (so we didn't bother). I am not sure... More

My son and I had lunch here today, we only live up the road but it was his treat to go out for lunch. The service was amazing and the food was just as amazing. Great size portions, very tasty and reasonably priced. Will definitely go again!
