Sited inside this historical church and occupying one of the naves the Tower Cafe definitely shows the enterprising side of religion. Because of its location its obviously quite atmospheric, but quiet it ain't (unless you visit it when empty). The high ceilings are made to amplify sound, so the already commented 'play area' occupied by some screechy children may make this venue somewhat less conducive to a tranquil break. The food is your basic fare of ciabattas and paninis, with some salads and soups. There is nothing radically wrong with that, nor is there anything to write home about it, but the service is terribly slow. When we arrived several tables had mountains of dirty crockery piled up on them (eventually and slowly cleared), the short queue to order food took an inordinate amount time and almost 15 minutes elapsed since the food order and the deliver to our table. Putting a few leaves on a plate and heating up a panini takes a couple of minutes, so this is obviously due to either severe staff shortages or inadequate management, or both. Anyway, there isn't an awful lot of choice in Brecon... so you may be better off bringing your own sandwiches!
