“A wonderful discovery”
Review of The Little Treat

The Little Treat
Ranked #2 of 4 Dessert in Abergavenny

Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 February 2018

Loads of sandwiches to choose from, and grilled ones are available. The light snacks menu is a joy - Belgian Waffles with blueberries & maple syrup, toasted bagels & teacakes, scones (with clotted cream and jam if you like). There is sourdough toast (with jam, marmalade or Marmite), or crumpets.

A signature dish is their Welsh Rarebit – a sourdough toast the topping of which involves mustard, Welsh ale and a “secret ingredient”. (This was recommended by a local and, although I didn’t have it myself, I did ask about the dish. I was given excellent tips about how to recreate a good approximation at home, but the final ingredient remains their secret!).

However tempting those all are, think seriously about the focaccia style pizzas which have thick but feather-light bases and are the best in the area. They come with a side salad, of the currently fashionable mix of leaves, but with the clever addition of a portion of balsamic vinegar & oil as a dipping sauce cum dressing with the pizza. This was a new experience for me, and it worked very well. It made it something really special.

A good dessert menu to finish with. The coffee’s good as well – a reasonable, unpretentious selection that would suit most people – and a lot of other drinks available as well.

Overall, a cleverly balanced menu, with lots of little gems to tempt the unwary, and even a good selection for the kids - perhaps let them have tasty but healthy options while Mum & Dad indulge?

I had coffee and welsh rarebit here on Sunday and I have to say it was great. Customer service was above and beyond, coffee was very nice and the rarebit was pretty damn good as well. My only real regret was I didnt try any of the Guinness cake but didnt think it would be the best idea just before climbing Sugar Loaf.
