Afternoon in Brecon


I’m off to Hay Festival tomorrow with Laree so we headed to Brecon en route to the in laws and went to see Becca in her gorgeous toy and shoe shop Cariad which has recently moved down the road and is now next door up Ty Cariad.

The shop is gorgeously decorated, I love the bright orange lampshades


and the cosy little table and chairs under the stairs


As ever it was lovely to see Becca, but she was working and we needed a cup of tea before heading over to the Valleys. Becca suggested we went to the new cafe in her old shoe shop so we wandered down the hill and found ourselves in Bijou Cafe Deli, which has only been open a week, before we knew it there was a cream tea on our table!

The scone was massive!

Having been in the building when it was a shoe shop it was great to see it occupied and the decorative changes they had made were simple and stylish.


As well as being a cafe and deli, there’s homewares from Susie Watson and Sophie Allport.


Laree gave her cake and my scone a big thumbs up and said it was a brilliant cafe, which is a big thing for a critical 9 year!

We’ll certainly go back when we’re in Brecon and will enjoy seeing their news Facebook and their Twitter feed.
