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

We wished we could have come here every day for breakfast throughout our stay in Cardiff -- what a treasure this place is! The breakfast menu has something for everyone with every size of appetite and the staff/kitchen seems quite happy to make adjustments to suit (within reason, of course). The end result? A perfect breakfast. The coffee was quite... More

I ate at this place for the first time recently. And I have to say...I want to make love to the pesto chicken and tomato chutney sandwich. And indeed to the ginger waitress who served it to me. Absolutely bloody amazing sandwich. Absolutely bloody amazing ginger waitress.

So here's the thing. I really like Brunch! (Now those who know me will not be amazed at my love of food disclosure.) My wife and I were looking for somewhere to have Brunch in Cardiff and we came across Garlands. Duke Street Arcade is within spitting distance of Cardiff Castle and the busy shopping areas, but retains a level... More

Extremely impressed with this small, quaint coffee house. Coffee is exceptionally good and the breakfast is absolutely lush. I had the veggie breakfast and my fiancé had the meaty breakfast. Both had excellent quality ingredients, non greasy and so many flavours. Extremely reasonable price and friendly service. Would definitely be back and highly recommend. Only con is the location is...

The best place that I've been in Cardiff City centre for breakfast. I think it could be called a porridge and poached egg paradise. Leave your hotel and eat breakfast there.

Good Food, good coffee, relaxed service and they welcomed us in before their opening time as we were loitering outside. We recommend the Eggs Benedict - hollandaise sauce freshly made and the eggs perfectly poached but the sausages in the sausage sandwich were also amazing as was the bread - proper granary, thick sliced off the loaf by hand.

We stumbled upon this lovely small cafe by chance during a weekend break in Cardiff. I had a delicious Welsh Rarebit and it came with homemade coleslaw and loads of salad. We sat outside in the arcade and enjoyed a peaceful leisurely lunch. The service was personal and friendly and our lunch was good value. The cafe offered a big... More
