During the winter months (November to March) we have a limited menu on weekdays – usually a daily special which might be a soup, stew or hearty salad.  We offer full breakfast, brunch and lunch on Saturdays.  

Please drop us a line or give us a call to find out our daily specials. We’re also more than happy to cater for you with a little advance warning.

Home-made cake and tasty ready-to-eat treats are served every day, year round, as are drinks:

Hot drinks

We serve a range of hot drinks including freshly brewed coffee, specialty teas and luscious hot chocolate.  

Cold drinks

Our thirst-quenching line up of cold drinks includes mineral water, fruit juice, non-dairy chocolate mylk, iced tea and iced coffee, sparkling elderflower and ginger beer.

Packed lunches

Heading for the hills? We can put together the perfect packed lunch for walkers, cyclists and mountain bikers.  Tasty, nourishing foods for slow-release energy throughout the day. Please order the day before during the quieter winter months.

Please advise us of any dietary requirements or food intolerances when ordering.  We will always do our best to cater for your needs.



Give us a call and place an order: 01497 822429 


If you are a local food producer and would like to supply to us, please get in touch.


For certain, larger orders that have been placed in advance we are able to deliver.





Our Food

Local. Tasty. Fair.  Those are our guiding principles when it comes to food and drink. In practice it means:

  • We work with local suppliers and producers to bring you the best that the Welsh border region has to offer, from bread to bacon and from cherries to cheese.
  • Our focus is on real food.  We like to make dishes from scratch using fresh ingredients and we steer clear of artificial flavours, colours and sweeteners preferring to let you enjoy the true taste of good food.   No frozen ready meals here!
  • Ensure our products are ethically sourced.  For us, coffee tastes much better if we know the producer has been paid a fair price and enjoys decent working conditions.  That’s while you will see the Fairtrade mark on many of our products and ingredients.
  • We only serve eggs from hens which are free to roam and only use free-range meat bought from our local butcher in Hay.  



We don’t use frozen food, we buy locally and eat what we don’t use.

Ethically Sourced

where available our food and particularly our coffee is Fair Trade


We don’t just bin our waste, we turn it into compost and everything that can be recycled, is.

We’ve been running walking and cycling holidays and operating our bike shop and hire centre in Hay for the best part of a decade.  The Cafe at Drover Cycles is a natural extension to our business and our ethos.  When it comes to food and drink we believe it should be local, tasty and fair.  We won’t just be catering for walkers and cyclists, everyone is welcome!  We are open to the general public so if you work locally and are looking for affordable breakfasts, tasty lunches and healthy snacks please come on down!  We have vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options and we use as many local and Fairtrade products as possible.


  • Cycle parking.  Keep an eye on your pride and joy while you munch your beans on toast. We also have car parking spaces for those arriving by motorised means.
  • On-site mechanic.  Need a gear adjustment while you sip your peppermint tea?  No problem, if the cafe is open so is our workshop.
  • Toilets and showers.  You are welcome to make use of our facilities.
  • Outdoor seating. Please note that our cafe tables are all out in the fresh Welsh air.  We do not currently offer any indoor seating, though you’re welcome to shelter in the shop if the weather is inclement!
  • Ideal for Offa’s Dyke Path, we’re just a field away from this National Trail.
