When it comes to delicatessens in Abergavenny, it’s all change in the last year or so with closures and new openings transforming the town’s deli options. The good news is we have a superb range of delis selling all sorts of delicious food and drink. Check out our recommendations.
Madame Fromage, formerly of Cardiff, has taken over the premises on Nevill Street that were formerly home to Marches Deli.
They have an absolutely fantastic cheese counter, plus fresh breads and cakes, and a delicious signature menu of sandwiches, pies and more. They also sell a range of high quality deli products.
There are two tiny tables inside, but they currently have several outdoor tables set up out front. Their Croque Monsieur and Welsh Rarebit are really excellent!
The Angel Bakery
The Angel Bakery has moved from their small store on Lower Castle to a much larger shop on the corner of Monk Street and Cross Street, enabling them to add a wide range of deli products to their own-baked breads and pastries.
They also sell fruit and veg, raw meat and charcuterie, a small selection of cheeses, posh pasta and other dried pantry goods, and chocolate. Their pickled clementines are amazing!
The Gaff Coffee Shop & Deli
Dan and Dannii, founders of our much loved local restaurant The Gaff, have opened a Cafe-Deli on the High Street (where Coffee No.1 used to be). As well as their much loved scotch eggs, fabulous sausage rolls and other savoury pastries (which make the perfect lunch), they sell homemade sweet treats including brownies, flapjacks and doughnuts.
Also on sale are homemade chutneys, sauces, compound butters, as well as a changing selection of fridge items such as smoked salmon, black pudding, local cheeses, and a few other items from local producers that they champion.
Upstairs are plenty of tables if you want to eat or drink in.
