Ivy House Café
If the genteel location, in the heart of Montgomery, one of mid-Wales' most atmospheric, ancient towns, doesn't bring you out in a craving for scones, the smell of the Ivy House's home baking surely will. There's plenty to spend your money on besides teacakes, though. Exhibitions of work by local artists hang on the walls, and there's a small deli operation here, too.
