We decided to try Garlands after reading good reviews and it certainly lived up to expectations. The staff all seemed genuinely keen to help and the food was really good (big portions!). The candle on the table was a nice touch, never had a candle lit breakfast before! A lovely atmosphere to the place too, very welcoming. Will definitely be... More

I visited here a few years ago and was very disappointed but on a recent trip we tried Garlands again and very pleasantly surprised with the standard of the food and the service-they take the time to have good quality products and had fantastic sausages!!

Lovely food and atmosphere. Long wait due to a large party ordering just before us but it was worth it! Excellent value and friendly staff.

This quaint little coffee shop in the lovely victorian Duke Street Arcade is the bomb! The BLT (with avocado) is to die for but make sure you have the granary bread toasted. Today i tried the rarebit and it was seriously the best i've ever had... I want more! Faggots and Cawl next! Yummy!

Visited the garlands eatery during a trip to Cardiff where we decided to visit there for a spot of breakfast after reading good reviews, and we're not disappointed. The girlfriend and I both decided to order the pancake stack with scrambled eggs and streaky bacon, the portion size and quality did not disappoint. Very nice atmosphere and excellent service from...

As a former student from abroad, I can honestly state that I havent found a proper replacement for Garlands since coming back to the Netherlands.I spend many lunch breaks and lazy afternoons here, enjoying the pancakes with scrambled egg and bacon, and the french toast with homemade fruit compote maybe a tad too much! The perfect spot, a little gem... More

Went for breakfast with my family before my graduation. I had the very American-style bacon and maple syrup pancakes, which were absolutely amazing. The pancakes were light and really fluffy, and came with just the right amount of everything (as well as some scrambled eggs on the side). All the pancakes on the menu are also automatically gluten free, which... More

I'm not going to pretend I go to lots of cafés and review them fervently, but Garlands' really was exceptional in both service and quality. The staff are always lovely and the owner clearly puts his heart and soul into the place. Also my waitress, a stunning young lady with candy floss pink hair, was exceptionally attentive and friendly. Would... More
