Reviewed 20 November 2013

Great food prepared by a very friendly people in a small but quaint cafe in the centre of the village.

Although the owners always seem to be very busy, they always make time to have a small chat with you, and everybody in there seems to know everyon else.

I hope this place does not suffer too much with CJ's opening recently just up the road, I'm sure that there are enough hungry people in Blaenavon to keep both places open for many years to come.

A marvellous gem of a cafe. Great Coffee including decaff! Great tea loaf and friendly staff. A really great place to start and finish a walk.

You get a real friendly Blaenavon welcome at this cafe where Carol and Paul produce tasty snacks and nice drinks. There are daily specials and everything is amazing value for money.

We have visited on several occasions. Food is cooked to order by only two people so when busy you may have a wait but this is a good opportunity to relax on your visit to this small but very historic town.
Value is very good, hot and freshly cooked. Staff are local so have a great loyalty to the town of Blaenavon, its people and to its history. Certainly well worth a visit.

This was a great find. We (4 adults and 2 children) had lunch here for 27 pounds. This is the cheapest you will find anywhere. We had: 1 x tomato soup, 2 x toasted cheese sandwiches with chips, 1 x f@ggots and peas, 1 x ham roll, 1 x bacon and sausage sandwich, 2 cups of tea, 1 latte and 3 milk shakes.

The food was very good quality and the service was very friendly as well.

Café and Cards is very close to the Big Pit which is a great tourist attraction.
