Love everything about Kismet....quirky and unique stock for sale envelopes a comfy seating area both up and downstairs serving lunchtime snacks and coffees. Baguettes, homemade soup and poached eggs on toast to name my favourites. Kismet also provide afternoon tea which is served on bone china crockery, with yummy cakes and fresh sandwiches and plentiful tea or coffee. 10/10 for... More

If you are looking for chatting with friends amongst a bit of Shabby S**t this is ok. Good decor and service ok. Food disappointing. A lot of work done on fancy presentation but little substance. My sandwich could have been made with supermarket sliced value bread. Gift shop below is good.

This is a lovely place for a light lunch. Homemade soups, tasty sandwiches and toasties all served with side salad and coleslaw. Good coffee and extremely friendly staff. I'm a regular.

This is my favourite little coffee shop in the whole of Caerphilly. It has such a lovely character and friendly staff. When I visit from Surrey I tend to visit everyday. The food is reasonable priced and I love how the coffee comes with a little biscuit. In addition the staff are so accommodating, when my daughter was sick in... More

Lovely for brunch / lunch - this little gem hides in a higher-end gift & jewellery shop just off Blackwood High St. I live locally and (as a rule) if I need a "special" gift for someone, I come here. They stock beautiful cards & gifts as well as ranges like Nomination & Kath Kitson. Tables are available downstairs &... More

Fabulous little place. Classier than the other coffee shops in the town. Food is fresh and place is clean. Added bonus of a vintage atmosphere. Great for a lunch break, food can be pre-ordered. Friendly staff, always smiling 😊

Was really looking forward to visiting after reading the reviews but sadly very disappointed. Went upstairs at around 1.15pm as downstairs was busy, sat at a table for 15 mins and no one came to serve us so decided to leave but as we walking out noticed it was quiet downstairs as all but one table was now empty so...

I was drawn in by the lovely retail items and once inside I saw there was a teashop. We stopped for lattes and teacakes, its a quaint little place, well worth stopping by.
