We stopped off for a quick lunch prior to my daughter's Graduation - family party of 6 - and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was excellent, the service was quick and attentive, and the atmosphere was good. I would highly recommend this eatery to anyone visiting Cardiff looking for a reasonably-priced and tasty meal.

Service good and friendly. We had the full meaty breakfast which was well cooked and lovely. Hot chocolate was divine, there are a variety to try.

This is the first and only time I have left a review but my experience last Thursday (9th July 2015) should serve to deter anybody from visiting this establishment unless they enjoy waiting.....and waiting......and waiting some more.

Staff at the cafe were very friendly! I had the gluten free pancakes with fruit and they were great. Its hard for someone with food allergies to find places to eat sometimes, so this was a nice find in the Cardiff arcades.

This is a lovely café for breakfast - we were in Cardiff for the weekend and went there 2 days running. I had the welsh rarebit one day, and the french toast & bacon the next day. It is in an arcade just opposite the Castle, so very handy for sightseeing. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the... More

My wife and I had passed this eatery before but it was always busy, but this time there was a free table and we were in. We were not disappointed. The place was clean, hospitable, and we had a warm welcome. All that we ate was freshly prepared and took 10 minutes to arrive, not too long. The presentation was... More
