Welcome to The Hours Café & Bookshop
At the foot of the beautiful Brecon Beacons, in the flagship town of the National Park, a short walk from the banks where the rivers Honddu and Usk meet, you will find The Hours Cafe & Bookshop. ‘The Hours’ is the perfect spot to sit and unwind, to catch up with family and friends in relaxed surroundings with the daily papers, scrabble and backgammon close at hand… in fact it’s the just the place to wile away the hours.
Situated in a gorgeously wonky Grade II listed building on one of Brecon’s oldest streets, we stock a fine selection of carefully hand-picked books. Our quirky second floor meanwhile, exhibits art by Welsh and Wales-based artists and houses a selection of literary gifts and used books. Please go to our events page to read about upcoming exhibitions.
Our charming café offers a scrumptious array of freshly prepared food including sandwiches, homemade quiches and hearty platters using local produce where possible, as well as home-made cakes and deliciously smooth fair-trade coffee.
