“Brunch haven”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

This is another gem of a place in Roath for a lazy weekend breakfast / brunch. Having driven past it a few times, I didn’t make much of it and thought it to be just another establishment on Crwys road. But when I searched for a place to have brunch last Sunday, the glowing reviews made me try this place, and I’m gad I did. It was busy and hence there was a wait for food. However, the waitress did point it out at the start and was apologetic (not necessary as it wasn’t her fault!). I ordered the Eggs Benedict Royale, whilst others on the table had ordered a standard fry up, and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon (and a drink is included if you order one of the big breakfast or brunch items). The food was very good and quite reasonably priced. The vast variety of offerings and cheaper prices probably make this a more suitable option than the Pot Cafe up the road. This would definitely be on top of my list when I’m to venture out for a weekend brunch.

“Amazing breakfast”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

The most delicious breakfast in Cardiff. Great value for money too! Fresh ingredients, cool decor, friendly staff. Really recommend it. Parking can be a pain but it's worth the walk.

“Worth the trip...”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Great atmosphere, great food, friendly staff - after reading the reviews on here for Cafe Calcio we set off on a special journey from Chepstow to try it out, and we weren't disappointed. Will definitely go again.

“Best breakfast in Cardiff”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We have been 3 times, my absolute favourite is the eggs benedict swiftly followed by a Belgian waffle covered in syrup (I do like a breakfast)

The food is freshly cooked, tasty and cheap - definitely worth a visit!
