Garlands

4 Duke Street Arcade, Cardiff CF10 1AZ

Tucked away at one end of Duke Street Arcade, Garlands is all that a proper cafe should be, with tasty, inexpensive food served by courteous, efficient staff in relaxed surroundings. Fresh food made to order is the deal here, with a strong Welsh aspect to the menu, such as cawl, Glamorgan sausages and the house speciality, rarebit, which is prepared the traditional way, with cheese, mustard, beer and butter stacked high, then toasted on a slice of bread. The all day breakfast (veggie or meaty) is equally scrumptious, or you might just fancy popping in for a quick espresso. With barely half a dozen tables, it does fill up quickly, particularly around lunchtime, so get here early. You won't regret it.
