coffee

Coffee directly from Finca Buena Vista in El Salvador, a distinct sweetness and fantastic cup for those gruelling rides

taste

Although visited during an early morning ride, the winter spiced fruit loaf was terrific (it's never too early for cake), alongside fresh sourdough with jam and a great cauppuccino

selection

A fantastic selection of homemade cakes, traybakes, pastries, cookies and scones, alongside freshly made toasties, wraps, sandwiches and soup. The giddy figgy and Billionaire shortbread are highly recommended

value

Cappuccino (£2.60), cakes/traybakes (from £2.50), Welsh cakes (£1.00), tea cake, butter & jam (£2.95), scone & clotted cream (£3.50), cinnamon/sticky buns (from £3.50), pastel de nata tart (£2.00), muffins (£2.50), toasted sourdough (from £2.40)

groups

Inside (and out in their courtyard) there's plenty of space for larger cycling groups although at weekends it does get busy with locals grabbing their caffeine fix

location

There's quiet scenic roads aplenty, with Buckholt Hill directly north leading past the girls school and in the direction of the city of Hereford. If looking for route suggestions we'd highly recommend heading south for 10 miles to reach the village of Tintern and it's famed ruinous abbey

Coffi Labs’ first coffee shop of a growing collection, based in the market town of Monmouth on the banks of the River Wye. Their ethos as the name suggests is inspired by their love of coffee and labradors, however the great news is they’re also extremely cycle friendly too.

It’s all about the sweet treats here with so many delights to deliberate over, during our last visit through the winter months we were spoilt for choice with winter specials… Giddy figgy cake, Bakewell, mulled apple crumble cake and winter spiced fruit loaf (which we can highly recommend!) to name a few. Other treats include their famous Welsh cakes, pastel de nata (a Portuguese egg custard tart pastry), sticky cinnamon buns (a local favourite), blueberry or banoffee muffins, ultimate brownies, dark & fruity flapjacks and billionaire shortbread.

As for savoury you’ll find freshly made toasties, sandwiches, wraps and soup, alongside freshly baked sourdough & jam and the cyclist staple of toasted tea cake with butter & jam.

To ensure the best coffee around, Coffi Lab have teamed up directly with Finca Buena Vista in El Salvador, providing a coffee with a distinct sweetness and fantastic cup every time – we can certainly testify that.

Inside the modern and light interior, there’s plenty of space for larger cycling groups with additional seating out in their outdoor courtyard. Public bike racking is available out on the High Street, directly opposite the cafe on the other side of the road.
