Clancy's for a quick snack - Edit

When I moved to Cardiff in 2015, Clancy's was the store which I relied on to go have some quick munching snacks. I like their Potato balls and Lentil Balls.

Its a value for money deal for their Lunch menu which includes a Custom Warp ( which is vegan if you choose the right fillings ), Vegan Burger ( without cheese or mayo ) and mouth watering Vegan Lentil soup and Naan.

With huge variety of vegan options and the shop right in the city center , the staff welcomes you with a warm smile always.

Pros: Good Vegan option, Budget, City Center

Cons: Sometimes the vegan and nonvegan can sit together, Serves Eggs and Dairy

Awesome stall - Edit

I discovered this place on first day of work. Been going there every day nearly for three weeks. They have a great selection of chillis, herbs and spices too. Staff are so friendly and nice to have a chat while you wait

Wonderful food, very good service - Edit

This is a little gem hidden deep within Cardiff Market and if you didn't know it existed you could so easily miss it. Such a pity as to miss it is to miss out. This is a nondescript little stall right in the heart of the market but it is vegan and veggie heaven! Choice is decent though not huge and all food is on open display in a sealed cabinet fully labelled as vegan or veggie. Their falafel wraps are great as an "on the go" lunch. Prices are reasonable and service is always with a smile. This place deserves support

Pros: Vegan and veggie, Decent choice

Cons: No seating area, Service can be slow but that's because it's soooo

best non-vegan vegan take away in Cardiff! - Edit

Clancy,s is a cool old school spice store in an indoor market. The three sides of the store are choc full of jars radiant with the colours of spices and herbs. The front has a fresh food display that had two shelves full of vegan savoury goodies on the Friday we visited. These included a vegan scotch egg that was a must given that it's the first time I,ve ever seen such a thing., it was a triumph of texture and taste in an easy to eat take away form. The sosroll was good and the ale pie lovely. When I return to Cardiff this stall will be high on my itinerary,

Pros: friendly and affordable, great selection of homemade vegan savouries

Cons: no sugar free sweets, not all vegan, close to meat stalls

Lots of spices - Edit

The stall has alot of interesting spices you don't easily get in a grocery store.

They have a few options to snack and eat which are quite affordable. We tried the burger which we found to be dry, the coconut bonbon which lacked flavour, the sausage roll which was bland, the lentil balls which were oldly sweet and the falafel wrap which was ok. I feel the food they have needs improvement. They lack flavour, are bland and cold.

Would prefer that they serve the dhall they have with rice. It would be nice they consider gluten free wraps and breads too.

Pros: Vegan snacks , Variety of spices, Affordable

Cons: Lack flavour , No gluten free meal options

Great market stall - Edit

Great stall for savoury vegan (and vegetarian) items such as pies, tartlets, dahl soup etc. Also stocks an amazing selection of dried chillies and lots of other spices etc.

Easy to find in the indoor market, round the side of the clock tower. Lovely staff.

Pros: Excellent value, Range, Lovely staff

Thank you for existing Clancy's!! - Edit

I have developed a soft spot for Clancy's, my partner and I often choose to go there over a sit-in place.
Lovely staff selling wonderful vegan food at excellent prices (seriously - they do a delicious veggie burger of the day with a good quality bun and homemade relish for only about £2.30) - who could say no??
As well as takeaway snacks and treats you can also get cooking ingredients, some of which look quite exotic and unusual.
I think their offerings change slightly from day to day so there's no guarantee that what you had one time will be there the next time - but you probably won't care because there's so much to choose from and it all looks delicious!
If you're hung up about the lack of seating then there are benches outside the market where we usually go, it's nice to sit in the sun! (though don't count on the sun actually being out because this is Wales)

vegan takeaway oasis - Edit

I love the staff here, they're great: fun, friendly, helpful and quirky. There's lots of vegan choice, much more than on first glance and sometimes more hiding behind. I always come away with a big selection of savoury and sweet. Perfect for putting together a picnic or rations for a train journey or a vegan christmas dessert!

Pop into the fishmongers nearby whilst you're here for fresh laverbread.

Pros: takeaway, large vegan selection, loveable staff

Handy little takeaway in the market - Edit

Market stall in the covered market selling herbs, spices and homemade veggie and vegan food. Had a falafel wrap and a vegan homemade 'bounty bar'. Was a handy find as I was dashing around Cardiff trying to find some vegan lunch. Cheerful friendly staff and very reasonably priced.

Pros: Nice staff , Good value

Cons: Small takeaway only

Clancy's market stall - Edit

Clancy's is almost in the exact centre of the Cardiff indoor market underneath the clock.

The Staff are very friendly with a good range of both savoury and sweet, vegetarian and vegan snacks to take away including a few raw vegan ones. Several of them are made locally and all the ones I've tried are of great quality. They also stock a range of spices and oils etc.

Pros: good value, excellent food, friendly staff

Cons: no seating

great takeout food - Edit

strictly vegetarian (no animal or fish products or fats), with several vegan options. This is just takeaway, with mostly Indian "street food" like samosas, and other tasty bites, and veggie lasagna, haloumi slammers, as well as some interesting vegan deserts. Everything tasted great, and was well spiced (but not too hot!)

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, good value

Cons: no seating
