Have recently been here a couple of times for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. Bread of Heaven has been a Pontypool place to eat for many years. It's a cafe, nicely decorated but nothing special to look at. But don't let that put you off. The service is superb, and nothing is too much trouble. Their meals are excellent, served... More

Had jacket potatoe and curry, the curry was homemade and very nice. Had a pot of tea which came with a pot of hot water the meal with tea came to £5 which was very reasonable. The staff were very friendly would recommend.

Visited today for lunch. Served really quickly. I had lovely scrambled eggs on thick toast - really enjoyed it. That and a latte came to under £4.00 - great value!

Waited 50 minutes for an omelette lunch time. So slow and had to cancel it as I had to be back in work. Don't go there for food unless you have over an hour to spare. Be prepared for a long wait. I will never go back

So, first things first, this is a family run business. It's open short hours, all food is freshly cooked and requires a wait. And it's quite quaint and quiet. Not that any of those are bad things.

Lovely people that run the restaurant, good selection of food, very clean tidy and the bogs are super clean. Toast is nice and other meals, however, they tend to sell small potions of McDonald's type chips, they could improve with real spuds and chips this was my only fault I found the chips let them down. Friendly atmosphere with newspapers... More
