“Gorgeous cupcakes, lovely peole working there”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We were in Brecon on honeymoon and came here 3 times in the week! The cakes were beautiful - I'd specify one to try, but they were all delicious.

The staff working in there (one man and one woman), presumably the owners, were a real delight to talk to - so friendly.

“"Perfect"”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Visited today following other reviews on trip advisor. Absolutely gorgeous cafe, very friendly welcoming owners. Proper china teacups, beautiful decor and the cakes are to die for !!!!! All made fresh daily on the premises, couldn't finish my scone so it was packaged safely for me to bring home, thank you so much. Pot of tea, a latte, huge slice of delicious carrot cake, scone with cream and the best raspberry jam I've ever tasted, and chose a selection of 4 cupcakes to bring home and all very reasonably priced. Made our day. Slightly out of town, but easily found if you head towards the canal area.

“Thanks”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Our visit to this very welcoming cafe made the trip to Brecon worthwhile. Cupcakes, tea and coffee were all delicious and the service was warm and friendly. We were in no hurry to leave. Made all the more satisfying by the fact that it is so clearly a real local gem, so a good feeling accompanied our satisfied sweet tooths.

My cousin has ordered lots of cakes from here, and the latest being her wedding cake in 2 weeks time, she introduced me to the delights of the cup cakes here and oh my word it was like heaven in my mouth! Never have I had a cake so gorgeous. Recommend everyone to go there and enjoy a gorgeous cake
