What a great idea to have a bowl of Dhal and mini- naan as a lunch option mid winter, quite set me a for a yomp up table mountain afterwards. Pastrami bagel was very tasty too. Service was friendly and efficient.
Only sadness - no Bruce Chatwin 'On the black hill' - missing a trick here - i am sure it would sell as well as the tasty hot cakes!

Simply the best coffee in Crickhowell, and a nice place to finish a walk. The cakes were lovely. The 'melts' looked good, and we could have chosen many more of the cakes.

Went for a snack lunch; food was good but service was chaotic and glacially slow. Hopefully these are teething problems that will be overcome. The venue / ambience is very pleasant.
