Amazing coffee, amazing brunch!

This hidden café is an amazing option for brunch or breakfast. The staff are lovely and the bread and eggs are just to die for!! Got my energy for the day :)

I wrote a slating review on TripAdvisor about having to wait for an hour for my food which never arrived on Saturday 30 May. It was published the next day and I have been waiting for the owners to respond, which they never did. Today I checked TripAdvisor and discovered that my review has been deleted. This demonstrates to me... More

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

Found this cafe/restaurant whilst walking round Cardiff- food is all freshly cooked and very tasty- we had Welsh rarebit and cawl , sweet potato and some double cooked chips and amazing hot chocolates- would definitely recommend.

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

As 1st time visitors to Cardiff, we were lucky to find Garlands. Garlands provided wonderful food in a very comfortable laid back atmosphere. Especially nice was the friendlieness of the staff as we asked for advice about both the restaurant and the surrounding area.

Never been here before, we were just looking for a quick lunch stop. The décor is a bit tired looking but we headed in regardless (we were told they're due for an imminent refit). We were greeted by a really nice chap at the bar who told us to take a seat while he got some menus'. Ordered a simple... More

Staff warm and friendly. Service prompt. Food healthy and tasty, also generous portions. All round brilliant. I will certainly make this a regular place to eat when I visit Cardiff. It compares very favourably with other places to eat.

One of my favourite places to eat in Cardiff. The foods here is absolutely incredible, and together with the friendly and welcoming staff makes eating here a lovely experience. The Cawl is delicious and their breakfasts are massive and amazing! I would really recommend Garlands to anyone and everyone!
