Nice looking café, painted walls to look plastered. Packed Saturday lunchtime, very warm inside but only 2 tables free. £7.50 seemed a lot for a sandwich until I saw the size! 3 slabs of bread with chicken and bacon, a side salad with slaw and nachos. Lamb cawl was a little thin but very tasty with delicious soft meat and... More

Enjoyed a fantastic Welsh veggie breakfast featuring Glamorgan sausages and laverbread pancakes. Great coffee too. Returned later in the day for one of their delicious cakes and more coffee. Friendly service and pleasant atmosphere.

We'd planned on having brunch in Browns but due to unforeseen circumstances they were unable to open. Wandering around we spied people sitting outside in the arcade and ventured in. The menu has a huge range of locally produced, home cooked fare far away from the McBreakfast type. The table next to us were tucking into huge doorstep breakfast sandwiches.... More

If a restaurant is busy its usually a good sign of things to come and Garlands is no exception so be prepared to wait for a few minutes but believe me the wait is thoroughly worth while. The welcome was very warm and friendly and the staff know the menu, the real bonus for me was the extensive gluten free... More

Took a walk into town just for breakfast/brunch today. I was not disappointed. The place was lovely, warm and cosy. It was comfortable and welcoming. There was a mix of young trendies, middle aged people, young families, young couples (obviously in love!)and just seemed to fit all. I was drawn to the place with the promise of a gluten-free meal.... More

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...
