Me and my brother had a chocolate brownie which was the best we had ever ate. My mum had coffee which was the best she had... More

I love going to The Deck, you always get a warm welcome from the owners and the food and atmosphere is always warm and welcoming. I can highly highly highly recommend the Omelette, healthy and really delicious. Lovely independent coffee shop with a local and inviting feel, a wonderful option for the Bay as there are so many chains.

Have visited on several occasions for breakfast and it has been excellent every time. Very welcoming atmosphere, the cafe is nice and cosy and the staff have always been very friendly. The afternoon tea also looks fantastic and we saw the cakes being handmade in the cafe.

My team went here as part of our work away day. We stopped for brunch in the morning and there was a good selection of breakfasts. Some of us ordered bacon sandwiches and the rest had full breakfasts. I thought it was strange that they brought out the sandwiches first as we were all finished by the time the full... More

Whilst visiting Cardiff recently I went in with my daughter (who is a regular at the deck) She often pops in for one of the amazing looking omelettes. The deck is owned by a friendly couple who I think would make anything you fancied. My daughter had a chicken salad and as I haven't been eating bread I just fancied... More

Not my first trip to the Deck, but my first afternoon tea.. Greeted with the usual warm and friendly welcome, followed by an endless teapot, and the most delicious selection of sandwiches, scones, brownies and the oh so famous cupcakes. I got it as a birthday treat for a friend and she loved it. No too shabby a way to... More

Having read great reviews on trip advisor I contacted Deb to ask if she could keep a table free for 11 of us for a baby shower, she was more than happy to help! We had the whole room to ourselves, unlimited tea and the most AMAZING cakes and sandwiches! With a relaxing atmosphere and friendly, attentive staff I would... More
