“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

The Deck has a lovely homely feel and a great relaxed atmosphere. The team are wonderful, so friendly and accommodating, absolutley the best service I've experienced.

The food selection is great - from delicious breakfasts to healthy salads and of course the wonderful cupcakes. All beautifully presented, freshly made and very reasonably priced.

The best coffee and cupcakes I've ever tasted (and I've tasted as lot). Will be making plenty more trips to Cardiff just to. visit The Deck.

Fab lunch at The Deck, friendly service and excellent, freshly prepared food. Perfect to chill before or after some retail therapy, or any visit to Cardiff. We have been before, and will be back....frequently! :-)

“The Best!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Amazing food that's freshly prepared to what you want, no matter how obscure it may be! The cakes are lovely & the Brownies are to die for (have to have a daily fix!). They are now doing the Vintage Cream Tea, sandwiches cakes & scones. It's for 2 people but easily feeds 3-4! It's devine & totally worth it!

“Vintage Cream Tea Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Visited The Deck for Vintage Cream Tea for a friends birthday. Amazing service from welcoming and friendly staff. The quality of the food service was excellent. Delicious sandwiches and even more delicious cupcakes and scones with clotted cream. All beautifully presented.
I highly recommend a visit for cupcakes if you haven't got time to indulge on the cream tea experience. Really really worth a visit.

“Delicious food and outstanding service from a great team!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

I regularly have breakfast at The Deck as it offers food tailored to meet your needs at a very reasonable cost. The crew at The Deck are lovely and always willing to go the extra mile to provide outstanding customer service. The only downside is that I'm spending all my money there on the delicious food.
