A little gem!

I eat lunch here quite regularly, and it's so refreshing to have a nice little cafe to hangout and eat good food, listen to good music. They guys (and girls) do a great job in there. It can get manic in there sometimes, but that's a good thing because everyone wants a piece of the tasty action! Definitely recommend you give it a try!

Pros: food, music, vibe
Cons: small, not easy to find

Do you mind if I don't give you your cake?

Food was OK but they had run out of half the menu, the staff were unfriendly and forgot we had ordered cake, when we asked to have the cake we were asked 'do you mind if I don't give it to you as we are closed' well what do you say to that? The atmosphere was uncomfortable I would not recommended at all.

    Hello Sharonbig. We are now under new management!

    I fully agree that your previous experience with the café was completely unacceptable. Please visit and we will give you a free slice of cake and hopefully we can charm you into changing your mind!

There are many sandwich places in Cathays. To find a purely veg one is fantastic, especially as they have a good range of food that isn't cheese based. Vegans are well catered for too. It's mainly sandwiches and baguettes with a couple of hot meals that change regularly - I mainly have take out and it's always been good!

Pros: varied menu, reasonably priced
Cons: not much room to sit down
