Where’s your favourite Welsh cafe?

Economy Minister Edwina Hart

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 12.17.10A STRIKING new book giving a taste of fifty exceptional cafes in Wales has recently been published. 

‘Caffis Cymru’ by Lowri Haf Cooke was launched on Saturday (Jul 9) at Another Festival, Caernarfon and will be launched again on Saturday (Jul 16) at Sesiwn Fawr, Dolgellau.

Across Wales, there’s a wealth of cosy, cool and quirky cafes to suit everyone’s tastes.

Behind every teapot and cafetiere, there’s a treasury of personal stories, anecdotes and snippets of local history.

Lowri Haf Cooke said: “Welsh cafes in their various guises have been meeting points and great social hotspots for many years. From the 18th and 19th century, coffee houses, Victorian tea rooms, Bracchi cafes and Milk bars (established in Colwyn Bay in 1933), have all played an important part in Wales’ social history.

“By the turn of the millennium, a number of local cafes were usurped by the high street giants. But there has been a new trend in recent years as we turn back to independent cafes, tearooms and artisan coffee. And as I discovered on my travels, there’s a new cross-pollination too – the cafe – restaurant-deli-bakery-bar.”

“Whichever cafe you enjoy visiting at the moment, you’re sure to discover a new favourite in ‘Caffis Cymru’. This is a book for everyone, and at the end of the day you don’t need to spend a fortune to enjoy yourself in one of these cafes. So, reach for a cuppa, sit back, relax and arrange your own whistle-stop tour of cafes in Wales!”

Caffis Cymru will be available at your local bookshop for £6.99 or directly from the publisher, Gomer Press, on www.gomer.co.uk.
