Must confess have walked by but never been in, more fool me, had the 'full meaty. their interpretation of a full English-mouth-watering. However, the piece de resistance was thier selection of jaw-dropping cakes. I chose the Chocolate, rum and raspberry which was incredible. Came out out bloated but well satisfied. Charming staff. Price for two £22. Great value, great food.... More

Garlands is by far one of the best places to grab some lunch in Cardiff. It's just opposite the castle with great home cooked meals, fresh bread and fantastic specials. There is something on the menu for everyone here from breakfast, dinner to an amazing selection of cakes. It can get busy and you sometimes have to wait for a... More

This is my favourite place to go for lunch in Cardiff! It's in Duke street arcade just opposite the castle and it has a lovely rustic cafe vibe. They have a great menu with a range of breakfast options (traditional, eggs benedict, pancakes with bacon or pulled pork and maple syrup) and a really nice selection of sandwich fillings. I... More

My friends and I went to this place as we had read good reviews about their fantastic gluten free pancakes. Unfortunately we had to wait 35 minutes until we got a seat, but that was okay; it was very busy, which only made me think that the wait would be worth it. After this wait and a lot of avoided...

Got a bit lost wandering around the city during a visit for work and stumbled across this little gem. Had the best BLT I've ever tasted. It was delicious. There are a variety of options to choose from on the menu, and it was hard to choose which to have. Their breakfast menu ranges from the usual fry up to... More

Worth going to just for the coffee - so hard to find decent coffee in the UK but these guys have it sorted, plus the food is excellent too.

I came to eat at Garlands when I had a few hours to kill in town on a Monday afternoon. Having wondered through the arcades this was the place that I came to. I squeezed myself in on a small table during a busy lunch service, but when a bigger one became available I sat there. Perhaps a tiny bit... More

Three of us were spoilt for choice at this delightful eateriy, even with the rarebits sold out! Favourites were the pulled pork pancakes with maple syrup (which we shared as well as a main course each). We were offered extra maple syrup as 'you can never have too much!' And the Eggs Royal were amazing. Really friendly and informative staff.... More
