New Farm Deli and breakfast go together like eggs and hollandaise, like salmon and avocado or bacon and more bacon.
Visit this early morning institution in the heart of Merthyr Village for weekend brekky and you're guaranteed to encounter a bustling, buzzy crowd seated both inside and out, watch orders fly out the kitchen and onto the tables of hungry patrons or hear the non-stop whir of the coffee machine as it grinds Di Bella beans and steams the milk for the caffeine cravers.
Churning out endless cups of coffee and plates of every bacon and egg combination imaginable is a breeze for these guys, which they do seven days a week. With a menu a mile long you won't struggle for choice – in fact the sheer number of options available makes ordering a serious affair! If you too can't decide between the Fresco (smoked salmon, avocado and grilled tomato on toast) and the Merenda (pan fried mushrooms, Roma tomatoes and bacon on toast) but have the usual unwavering hankering for haloumi, you can simply make your own combination. A plate of poached eggs, grilled Roma tomato, haloumi, avocado and mushrooms with Turkish bread prove New Farm Deli are flexible and put the customer first.
Not only can you choose from an endless list of breakfast options or make your own here, there are also made-to-order or cabinet-ready sandwiches and rolls as well as tarts, quiches, salads, burgers, generous bowls of pasta and an array of mouth-watering sweet treats that taunt you from behind the glass. Think hearty, homemade Italian-Mediterranean.
Plus the Deli adjacent means you can pick up your specialty produce at the same time. Once you've drained the last drop of Di Bella or polished off your eggs browse the cheese and small goods counter or pick up various sized jars, cans and bottles of imported goods. New Farm Deli might not be winning any awards for food innovation or breaking new ground but boy do they know how to serve up comfort food, just the way you like it.
