Cadwaladers

Mermaid Quay Cardiff Bay CF10 5BZ

With the city's long history of Italian settlement, it’s not difficult to see why ice-cream is so popular, and so very good, in this part of the world – and the place to go in Cardiff is Cadwaladers, poised above the water’s edge down in the Bay. Delicious home-spun recipes (with the inevitable secret ingredient) have been the key to the success of this celebrated ice-cream parlour since 1927, featuring all the classic flavours as well as many intriguing specialist creations. Belgian waffles, scones, muffins and a range of hot and chilled drinks are sold here too, which you can consume either on the premises or take away. There’s another branch in the St David’s Centre.
