“Uncooked dough too”

I also ate breakfast at this establishment when it first opened and was served with croissants that were basically just raw dough. Not to mention the rest of the food was awful. They also got my order wrong and didn't offer any refund.

I again stress that this happened when the establishment first opened (a few years back) and they definitely, DEFINATELY served croissants (in their uncooked form ...) at this time. So either Shaun was not the manager at this time, or if he was, he isn't being particularly honest in his response on this forum.

The reason i'm writing this review now is because of the managers response to a reviewer who had the same experience that I did. Perhaps Mischiefs have upped their game since, but at that time, that is exactly what happened.

This is the second time I’ve called in at Mischief’s for breakfast when visiting Cardiff Bay. Only a short walk from the Wales Millennium Centre. I chose the large breakfast including bacon, egg, hash browns, baked beans, sausages, black pudding and mushrooms. Great value. Staff were friendly, the place was clean. Quiet at that time of day.

My wife and I had Sunday lunch here recently via a Living Social voucher offer. We had the roast dinner. Very generous portions of beatifully cooked meat and a good selction of real home cooked veg. One could have pork,chicken,beef or lamb or even a mixture of meats. It came with Yorkshire pudding if required. Plenty of extra gravy on offer plus all the mustards, and sauces. The service was faultless. The ambience very relaxing.The wine was very reasonable. So all in all I have no hesitation in recommending this corner cafe/bar in James Street which is just a 5 minute walk from the Cardiff Bay cafe area or the Wales Millennium Centre. You will find the short walk well worth it.

Great sunday lunch - great value - superbly cooked and the management and staff really try to make the most of your visit.
Well done. Not the prettiest location but atmosphere more than makes up for it.

I ordered a croissant here for breakfast and upon biting into it found that although the outside was warm, the inside was uncooked wet dough. It must have been frozen then not properly cooked. It was disgusting. No one in the restaurant seemed concerned and didn't offer a refund. I left.
