Really lovely homecooked food in a fantastic uncorporate setting. If you want an alternative to Starbucks or Costa, come here!

My and I dropped in for a treat and that is what it was. Great atmosphere and amazing cakes; the cappuccinos we had were beautifully done.
There wasn't a huge amount of seating but that created a cosy feel.
I would thoroughly recommend a visit for so many reasons.

Cake! cake! cake!
The service is very good, the garden beautiful and the coffee excellent. Good read with free proper newspapers not comics.

Great little 'cake shop', lots of interesting - and very tasty - cakes, slices, tarts, cookies etc. Lovely setting as well. We visited with local friends and were impressed. This is the sort of place you would go to often if you lived in Abergavenny or nearby!

We visited Fig Tree Espresso for the second time today, prompted by a previous visit and ongoing great reviews. As last time, the coffee was fantastic, and the cakes delicious - chocolate brownie and a gorgeous lemon, almond and raspberry cake. My one comment would be that service was most definitely not "with a smile". A previous reviewer has commented on something similar, and sadly, we felt a bit uncomfortable today. There was no welcome or smile, and when asking for the money, it was simply "£8.00", not "£8.00 please" or any other pleasantry. It will not stop us from visiting again, but was simply small minus point to the visit. Otherwise, very good.
