Diod was established in July 2021 by Lisa Jones. Having talked about running a business in the town in which she lived in for a number of years the opportunity came about in late 2020 when her retail premises came empty. Work started in early 2021 to transform the building which was a shop into a coffee shop, starting by working with Aberystwyth based interior designer Design House Wales to come up with the scandi Welsh vibe you can enjoy today.
The vision was to create a truly Welsh coffee shop in the heart of Llandeilo, where customers would be able to enjoy, great coffee, great cake and food in a relaxed and modern atmosphere. Everything from how the place would look, to the branding, down to which coffee cups to use were carefully considered and in July 2021, Diod was finally ready to open its doors.
Diod today is somewhere you’ll get a warm Welsh welcome with 90% of the staff speaking Welsh. Focussing around good quality coffee, cake and light lunches Diod is open 6 days a week and as well as being a coffee shop is also a wine shop which you can enjoy to drink in or to take home.
Diod also organises pop up evening events including events such as sushi nights, cocktails and canapes, grazing nights and more. Watch this space for more events in the future.
