I lived near Crwys Road for over a year and if I had been out on the Saturday night 9 times out of 10 I would be in Cafe Calcio the next morning because their 'Fat b*****d' breakfast is incredibly good value and the saviour of many of my weekends!

After a fruitless search, it seems that Cafe Calcio had closed down! However, in its place is the Gutsy Goose, which is lovely.

I have been here many ones, the food is excellent quality and I think it's good value. Staff are also a little grumpy when I have visited but doesn't stop me going back. Friendlier staff would make this place 5 star

Its sad that I've changed my view about this cafe in recent months. I've been about 3 times and found the food superb, really good selection of breakfasts. Coffee is pretty awful but breakfasts definitely make up for that. Due to the fact that I like the food so much I've attempted to visit this cafe on 3 separate occasions... More

The waitress wasn't particulalrly happy, friendly or helpful and couldn't even raise a smile but we did enjoy the food we had (eggs benedict with mushrooms). Portions were pretty big and there seemed to be a good choice on the menu, with fair prices.

SLightly surprised at all the positive reviews regarding the breakfast - which was ok, but nothing special. Portions quite large, but quality of food was just bog standard. Also, because there were quite a few of us they were reluctant to move tables and didn't really seem keen on fitting us in.

Went this morning for breakfast on the basis of its excellent write up on Tripadvisor. Couldn't have been happier with the service and food we received - absolutely fantastic quality on both fronts. Delicious cooked breakfast with a wide menu to suit any tastes. Two excellent cooked vegetarian breakfasts makes this a great place to go for the non carnivorous... More
