More than just coffee on the menu at Barista’s Coffee Shop
Barista’s Coffee Shop is situated in the heart of the Aberafan Shopping Centre, near Bodycare and Poundland. It is a favourite hangout for a diverse array of diners within the Port Talbot community and has been a popular eating place for the last 15 years.
The decor is a classic mix of black and white canvas prints (of the shop and its warm and welcoming staff), giving the café an ambience of affordability and modernity. Each table provides a clear view of the food counter and coffee facilities. No reservations are needed, and diners are encouraged to walk in and make themselves comfortable before ordering from the extensive menu at the counter.
The menu offers a wide variety of delicious and mouth-watering snacks and meals, varied fillings for baguettes and sandwiches, and of course the popular jacket potatoes with a choice of fillings. The menu will appeal to youngsters and adults alike. The homemade corn beef pie with gravy comes VERY highly recommended, as do their popular selection of ice cream sundaes.
Everything made is both fresh and delicious and presented invitingly to their diners. The best quality ingredients are used to produce various home cooked dishes, that are both appetising and filling, to suit all tastes. The menu rotates the inclusion of some homemade dishes monthly; currently, for example, chicken tikka and rice with naan bread, and vegetable themed soups such as leek and potato or carrot and coriander are available.
The cafe also offers a very competitive children’s menu (under 12’s only). Indeed, a child can eat from the children’s special menu, located at the counter at the front of the café (including a main meal from the choice provided, a drink and pudding), for as little as £3.45! This meal deal was previously only available during school holidays but has now been introduced as an ongoing popular feature until further notice.
The service provided is of the highest quality, and the staff take great pride in their work when engaging with customers – many of whom are regulars. The owners Lynne and Debbie are very warm and thoughtful individuals, who authentically engage with all their customers.
It is definitely worth visiting Barista’s Coffee Shop at the Mall. The food is extremely plentiful and tasty, and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming……what more could you ask for?
