Family Run

It's about time I told you about Sanwiched in the City, a family run business in the centre of Cardiff. They take care of their customers and give value for money food and coffee. My favourite has always been the Brie and Cranberry Baguette every time I go there. It nestles in Dominions Arcade, you... read more

I use to live in wales and this restaurant seemed good at first. But the boss is gross, rude and he should learn to be polite. How dare he let the hairdresser next doer touch his belly in front of the costumers ? This is disgusting. The rest of the staff may be ok sometimes but it's a bit expensive... More

Cheery greeting on entering. Pleasant servers. Delish cheese and onion panini also a packed bacon baguette. Ordinary tea and decaf tea. Nothing too much trouble. Nicely served, hot and tasty. Swiftly served. Yep this place can get really busy but everyone works really hard to get orders out. Nothing is too much trouble. Not quite happy? Have a chat and... More

Been visiting this cafe ever since it opened. Best spicy chicken sandwich for miles! Love it! 2 little suggestions: provide a knife with the sandwich (if eat in) coz it can be messy, + don't place the napkin beneath the sandwich. Again, messy! Otherwise, excellent! Awesome friendly guy served me today too :)

Jacket potato with cheese and coleslaw and a cup of tea. The orders were flying out quite quickly.By the time I... More

Waiting 15 mins for jacket potato and tuna, no condiments given no knife and fork, its constantly slow and under staffed, if there is 3 or more people waiting it goes to chaos, also no salad included. £4.30 odd for the displeasure of it, go city kitchen or the market it’s cheaper and quicker. They will lose so much custom... More

Doesn't matter what time of the day we visit, John, Ozzy et al always give a great welcome. The coffee far out-coffees all the overpriced chains and all the staff are so obliging. The baguettes and paninis are delish with very original fillings and the hot buttered paninis are just the job! John's is our first stop when we get... More

My favourite place for sandwiches and especially baguettes, fresh, quick service and tasty. The do meal deals in case people fancy it and cakes too should you have room left!! Keep up the good work guys and if you're reading this and haven't been... Just do it!
