  • They have got one of the best coffees in UK!!100%recommended
  • Nice place to hangout . Had some Belgian waffle with vanilla ice cream . Recommend
  • We walked down to Cardiff Bay from Cardiff City Center on a lovely sunny afternoon after it had rained all morning. After exploring, a coffee and a sweet treat were just the thing! My husband had ice cream (sticky toffee & honeycomb) and I had a cranberry triffin with a flat white coffee. All were delicious and served quickly. A nice view of the Bay made it even better and we were rejuvenated for our walk back. The Cadwalanders story, posted on the wall, is very interesting! Have a look.
  • The worst experience in my life! We were waiting for the theatre and decided to have a coffee and an ice cream. We had to wait 30' even though we ordered 2 sundaes to take our plates from the till We then thought to sit outside the seagulls destroyed my daughter's sundae we then moved back in, the tables were filthy the staff was a high number, I think 5? More then enough to run this small cafe if they were a bit competent! I went to order a second sundae for my daughter and this time I asked, do I have to wait while you get it ready? This time they gave me a spoon with a number and I returned to the table. That was a mistake because they totally forgot about my order. So we had to leave and my 10 years old daughter didn't have the ice cream I paid for twice!!!! I asked for a refund and I said that I want to complain about the service received I spoke with the supervisor who refused to give me information about the complaint procedures. Horrible experience! Almost ruined our day. Thankfully we had a good time in the theatre but I will never ever again spend a penny in there
  • Had the Belgian waffle with vanilla ice cream and toffee sauce. The waffle was good but the vanilla ice cream was average at best. Once the sauce was gone it was very bland. Meh.
