Always Delicious!

I've had many a breakfast in Cardiff and the Pulled Pork Pancakes in this place are still my Number 1 favorite.(So far.. always on the search for the ultimate breakfast) I've also had the Nacho Sharer (and pancakes) whilst engorging with my boyfriend and the Chilli layers were fantastic.

Garlands was recommended to me by my sister when she was a student, and since I've moved to Cardiff it's the only cafe I choose to use :) whenever my mum visits we go there too.. Staff are always friendly and you get a lot of food for your money. Definitely worth a try! Carys W

I was in need of a breakfast on a Sunday morning/ early afternoon. After a wander around Cardiff in the sunshine, I decided to stop in Garlands. I ordered a breakfast and a tea. They had a handful of tables in. The server took my order at the table. So far so good. When my tea arrived the cup didn't... More

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. Having chosen Garlands for a pre-day 2 of The Ashes breakfast, we arrived to a relatively quiet restaurant and duly ordered 'standard' off... 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 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 :)
