This is a cool eatery with about 10 tables and 2 workers turning out gigantic and tasty sandwiches and other foods. Try it out!

Went here on a Saturday after searching for somewhere to have lunch whilst shopping. We usually randomly walk into somewhere and 9/10 it's awful so I looked on TripAdvisor for somewhere close to us and this was it. It was very busy with 1 spare table luckily for us. Very welcoming. My partner had the Welsh Lamb Cawl which was... More

An old-fashioned look and name, but a modern and thoughtful approach to cooking Classics e.g. Welsh Rarebit with great attention to quality and excellent service on my first visit. Prices are very reasonable in a competitive market and it is critical that places like this are supported...even cherished! The cakes were good and worth a return visit, while the coffee... More

Yes we had to wait for our food to arrive, but that said it was certainly worth the wait... really enjoyable and freshly cooked, and a big plus point, it's served on hot plates! And the we just had to try the cakes - and very yummie they were too. All of the staff were very friendly and it was... More

One of the hidden gems of Cardiff's many arcades. Garlands is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a little stop-off for tea and cake when you're out shopping. You can tell the food is great because it's always busy - but staff are always quick to help and really friendly. The menu has something for everyone and may seem expensive... More

Made very welcome and has the best jacket potato and prawn salad. Exciting salad which looked unsure but tasted fabulous!

Visited this morning alone with a newspaper in search of a bit of peace and quiet, a good pot of tea and something brunch-y. This place has it all. Doorstep bloomer sandwich of thick cut bacon and tasty, tasty sausage served up with a pot of assam for one (with an offer of refilling the water) ticked every box. As... More

Lovely breakfast here today. Veggie for me, full Monty for one and eggs Benedict for another. Plentiful for us girls with thick toast. Home made Glamorgan sausage and lavabread pancake were lush. Pot of tea was so nice that we may have to go back one afternoon to have with the lovely looking home made cakes we saw

This is a nice and friendly cafe in Duke Street Arcade. It's pretty small but we managed to get a table on a Saturday afternoon. We just had some drinks and cakes and they were very delicious. I had a lovely mocha and a carrot, walnut and apple cake which was very tasty. It was only £4 for the coffee... More
