The Haystack Café, a Welsh farm-style café and coffee shop, is set to open its second venue in Merthyr Tydfil and will be based within the former Howfields Bakery building on the High Street.

The owner, Liam Lazarus, has been fully supported by the Council through advice, guidance and also secured a grant for fit out from the Merthyr Tydfil Shared Prosperity Fund grants programme.

The highly anticipated opening, which will offer up to 25 new local jobs, is due to take place within the coming weeks and details on the opening will be issued a week before the launch date. The new venture has promised residents, who intend to visit on opening day, a surprise – which they said was a “small gesture, a way for us to express gratitude for welcoming the Haystack Café into your town."

The journey began in Swansea, where the first Haystack Café took root, inspired by the serene landscapes and warm hospitality of Welsh farms. The location quickly became a community favourite, offering local produce-inspired breakfasts and a cosy atmosphere that feels like a rustic escape.

Liam Lazarus commented, “The lively energy and welcoming spirit of Merthyr caught our attention, prompting us to extend the Haystack Café experience to your town. We aim to create a place in Merthyr where locals can gather, enjoy delicious meals, savour the richness of Coaltown Coffee and create memories.”

Cllr Michelle Symonds, Cabinet Member for Regeneration added, “It’s fantastic to be able to welcome a new and vibrant business to our ever-growing town centre and we wish them the very best on their exciting venture.”
