“Great coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Nice ambience in this place - right opposite Coleg Glan Hafren - so a great place to wait for your teen while he/she completes their A level course. Staff are pleasant and attentiver - Cakes are good too!

“Cozy Cafe at any time of the day & night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Unlike most other cafes in Cardiff, this privately owned place is open all day, right until the late night hours. The tasty drinks, good food and friendly staff have made me stay for hours many times over the last years. Particularly the upstairs lounge area is perfect to catch up with friends or enjoy the occasional live music.
