Live locally and had lunch here with friends again last week. The service is fast and the food lovely, and excellent value. Why aren't all cafe's as good as this?

A perfect lunchtime stop on our canal holiday. We both ordered toasted sandwiches, tuna and cheese and ham and cheese - both were stuffed full on tasty brown bread with a fresh side salad with homemade coleslaw. We sat outside and enjoyed watching the world...More

Great location for those navigating, walking, or cycling the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal. Next door to Bikes+Hikes. Coffee was from a push-button machine, rather than hand-crafted by a barista, but all things considered was pretty good. Cakes on the counter looked good (not sampled). A...More

Positioned alongside the delightful Mon and Brec canal this cafe, shop and post office is an absolute gem. The service was great and the food was brilliant. We had an all day breakfast and it was perfectly sized and well cooked. Well worth a visit...More

A wonderful cafe, combined with a shop and post office. Most food is made on the premisis or by local companies. The custard slices are to die for. The full breakfast is a challange, to say the least.

Wow, this was a pleasant surprise! Not just a cafe as the name says, but an obviously wel-run little restaurant with the freshest food we could have hoped for in a drop-in establishment early on a Sunday afternoon. I had a tuna melt jacket potato...More

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...More

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

From memory, I don’t think they do. It would have been my choice too, but it wasn’t on offer. Things may have changed though (visited Sep 2017). I’m told the breakfast panini is very good though.
