Having walked through the fascinating indoor market and the fabulous independent shops this was the perfect place to stop off and have a coffee.

This is my favourite breakfast/brunch spot in Cardiff. It's a cosy, quiet oasis right in the city centre with very friendly staff and really good food. Their numerous quirky takes on Welsh rarebit are all fantastic, although the Mediterranean is my personal favourite. Their eggs Benedict are top, too.

As a quick stop before leaving Cardiff, I gotta say I'm really glad it was at Garlands. The staff were fantastically nice, and were happy to humor some conversation with my lonesome self- granted it was a bit quieter at the time. Food is good, the Cawl was my crowning dish of my stay here, and they did a great... More

Me and my sister went for breakfast on our only morning in Cardiff. We got recommended by our AirBnb host and were not disappointed! Big selection of breakfast, all to reasonable prices! Nice and authentic and good to get away from the franchise coffee shops.

Had a family lunch here and sat in the arcade. The menu was really varied - we were a group of adults and children and everyone found something they fancied. Plenty for veggies too. The portions were large and the food was tasty. The service was friendly and accommodating. Would go again - there are a few other things I... More

The visit was marred by bad quality food. Everything was drowned in oil and slightly burnt. Service and venue were great though.

Enjoyed the blueberry pancakes and a good quality coffee, they staff were having a very busy day and were very short staffed, their customer service didn't slip. Service was a little slow, but it couldn't be helped. The food was presented well and tasted even better. Would recommend to everyone.

Divine breakfast with generous portions and served hot. Service slightly slow but it is a busy place so not a surprise. Definitely worth a visit!

Not eaten here since it changed hands, so decided to give it a go. Service was slow, a long wait for food, which was initially given to a party that had arrived after us! It was cool, not hot. The people next to us had finished and we had to get up to let them pass as the tables are... More

Visited with my wife. The downside was the noisy hill-billy type violin music playing for the duration of our visit. Really irritating and too loud, it spoilt things inside, luckily a table became available outside and we moved, from then on it was lovely. We both had a warm goats cheese salad which was very generously proportioned and came with... More
