visit Wales, Llandeilo

I may be a wee bit biased about Llandeilo as it’s our local town but it does have a few good things about it that I think worth sharing with you.

We have several good places to eat and many excellent places to shop.

Cafi Salvador does an excellent cup of coffee and offers tapas or ‘small’ plates of food including many fish dishes. We stopped by and as we sipped our coffee we spied plates of sardines, fresh bread and other delicious things wafting past us on their way to expectant diners.

Sarah, who owns the Cafi also owns a deli just a few yards away called Salvador Deli. I understand she has made one of the top 50 independent delis in Britain its interior is filled with wooden shelves offering all sorts of treats, whilst the fridge profers up hams, cheeses, fish and fresh food.

We have several ladies boutiques with good quality clothes along with a very nice shoe shop.

Other eateries include Baritas, where the very friendly staff will serve you with soup, sandwiches and cakes. The Angel pub serves good value, tasty lunches, sandwiches and icecream from Heavenly ice cream parlour who produce all manor of wonderfully inventive ice creams, pastries and chocolate.

  1. The ‘Salvador Deli’ made me smile. We are sadly lacking a really good deli in Ayr – with respect to food shopping I cannot wait until I get back to university. Ayr does have Renaldo’s ice cream parlour however, where I go to buy Old Fashioned Vanilla during the summer.

    St Andrews lucky enough to be home to not one but TW0 ice-cream parlours: Janetta’s and Luvian’s. Luvians is properly a wine cellar that also has an ice-cream branch, but Janetta’s is The Real Thing. They do all kinds of ice-cream, as well as various sundaes.

    For cheese we have an I. J. Mellis cheesemonger, with rounds of cheese stacked up high on the counter, shelves of spices, and different salamis which they are happy to slice as thin or as thick as you like. (they used to keep my sliced salami in the fridge so that I could pick it up after my last class at 5pm, once they had shut down the slicer).

    The east coast of Scotland is famed for being the home of Fisher and Donaldson – bakers of bread, rolls, Dr Floyd’s seeded loaf, croissants and extremely good cakes.

    Just a short hop across the road is Butler and Co. – floor to ceiling shelves stacked with biscuits, pannetone, crackers, honeycomb, chocolates, chutneys, jams, oils, vinegars… They run a wrap bar at the back of the shop, and most of the students can be seen at lunchtime clutching one of their wittily named sandwich wraps.

    There is also a small Italian deli, who sell nougat cakes by the slice (or sometime whole!) and have jars of brightly wrapped Italian sweets and chocolate that they are happy to measure out to any amount, however small.

    The grocers is one of my favourite shops. They are still family run, and are very friendly. Their fruit and veg are of extremely high quality, and very well priced. Also they will sometimes sell only slightly bruised oranges and grapefruit for 5 and 10 pence.

    St Andrews is also home to many other pleasant NON food shops – but I seem to have written an awful lot so will now desist and leave to write on my own blog.

  2. Howdy! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to look it over. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Terrific blog and terrific design.
