We were passing through Abergavenny on our way back from holiday, and fancied a coffee, so parked up in the pay-and-display car park round the corner (£1 for 2h) and popped in. Was happy with my choice - my cappuccino was nice, as were the raspberry cake and Eggs Benedict.

Cosy atmosphere and friendly staff.

Having read a recent review which commented on the state of the toilet, I can report that it was clean and in working order.

Thank Rousers

We visit cwtch cafe every time we go to Aber, and their tea is delicious and their eggs on toast are second to none. Friendly staff, good prices and excellent selection.

I'll openly admit to being a bit of a Maple Syrup snob....selling it for a living means I taste it a lot and know when it is not 100% Pure Maple Syrup. As our normal brunch establishment don't have Pancakes on the menu at the moment we decided to visit Cwtch and were grateful to know that our little dog is welcome too! The Pancakes arrived with bacon and eggs, looking delicious with a little pot of Syrup...sadly not Maple Syrup as detailed on the menu. Perhaps Maple Flavour Syrup, or a Golden Syrup but definitely not Maple Syrup as far to light in colour and too thick for real Maple. The Pancakes were good, the espresso was great and lovely cosy atmosphere but please amend the menu to avoid future disappointment.

The selection of cakes here is amazing - have tried several different types and all good. There is a good and interesting choice of light meals and breakfast items. Soup is delicious. Service is quick and staff are friendly. One little thing we find disconcerting - and which seems to apply in a lot of café style restaurants nowadays - is that they allow dogs inside the café. We were there one rainy day and a group arrived with a large wet dog and sat next to us - there was hardly any room for the dog between our tables and it had that "wet dog" smell. We like dogs, but not near the table when we are eating.

Hello Aliceloyd
I never normally respond to reviews but feel this is quite harsh,I would like to say that our toilet is disinfected and cleaned every day when shop closes ready for the next days use.we can't control the personal hygiene of our customers,and how they leave the toilet after they finish we cannot be expected to visit the toilet after every customer has used it to check thier hygiene level!!!Saying that,we have on many MANY occasions had to leave what we do best,i.e. taking care of our customers wants,and with rolled up sleeves cleaned up mess that would turn your stomach!!! It's a shame you didn't come early to see that out little toilet starts the day clean and bright.
I waned to answer your review but wished you had spoken to me personally,don't think this is a fare way to complain,
Best Regards Graham
