Great value for a superb breakfast on lazy Saturday morning. Really impressed with the attentiveness of the staff, quality of ingredients used and nice coffee. The atmosphere here makes it for me, far superior to the majority of other places in the city centre.

We went here on recommendation for the vegetarian full Welsh, and were so pleased that we came back for breakfast again. The service was good, the portions filling, and the staff friendly and helpful. If I were to have a complaint, it would be that a vegan Welsh brekkie option would have been even better.

One of Cardiff's little treasures! The food here is always lovely and very reasonably priced. They have a big selection for breakfast in particular and their Welsh Cawl is amazing!! Super filling though as it comes with thick doorstop bread and butter! If you're looking for an independent place to eat with proper homemade food then this is it! Bear... More

Firstly, the staff were very friendly and helpful, we asked to change our order and they were happy to do so, the food was tasty, I had the FULL MEATY breakfast, and my friend had Salmon Royale, both cooked well and flavory, not greasy or overcooked. Filter coffee was nice (they didn't have sweetener, so had to use demerara sugar... More

Amazing breakfast. Good quality ingredients at good value, friendly staff and lovely atmosphere. Really quick service despite it being busy. Only slight negative is that they are still cash only! Highly recommend.

My friends and I went to Garlands for brunch after watching the parades on St. David's Day. The wait was expected since it was a Sunday with the celebrations going. Food was great but there was one particular staff who constantly ignored us. I raised my hand to attract the staff's attention since I wanted a hot drink but the... More

Garlands has once again saved my life this morning with a fabulous veggie breakfast, great coffee and a pint of OJ. Open Sunday, busy but still seated and served in 15mins - friendly staff and very understanding of the need for sunglasses :) happy St David's day!

We only had a scone and coffee at about 11 in the morning and there was plenty of room. Food was very good although coffees were only average. Service was excellent.
