“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Great atmosphere, outstanding coffee and the food and service were brilliant. Looked after me and my Aussie colleagues during a recent one week stay in Cardiff for the rugby. Homemade cakes are first class - try the lemon meringue pie. Also, you must give the Cawl a go, it's superb. Will be my first stop next time I visit Cardiff.

“Found a little cosy treasure!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

Just passing and happen to look at the menu on the table... which got us to go in. And I'm so glad we did. The atmosphere was beautiful, music in the background made u want to sit and enjoy the feel. We both had the hearty breakfast with the tiger bay pudding as an extra. Awesome, homemade bread served as well. The young man who served us, we found by chatting to him actually owns Garlands.... All be it he took over 5 weeks ago. If he keeps doing what he's doing he will have a extremely busy cafe...

“Cosy little cafe in the Duke Street Arcade”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

This is a very cosy and peaceful cafe close to Cardiff Castle in one of Cardiff's old and famous arcades. The food is good and the staff are friendly.
