Expensive but fascinating cup-of-tea choices - Edit

This is a specialist tea sellers, with all their tea sourced from particular estates, (and correspondingly expensive) and most of it organic - so high marks environmentally!
The staff are very knowledgeable about it and enthusiastic and helpful; it is clearly a place where you can order an expensive tea (and maybe a cake) and while away an hour or so reading or chatting to friends (their are some very comfy armchairs, etc.) They do a couple of vegan cakes every day which are delicious. However, whilst there are vegan choices at lunchtime (generally soups) they also serve meat and fish, so I would only recommend it at non-mealtimes (and lunch can go on until about 3.00, I was told). Very nice otherwise, though and easy to find - close to John Lewis.

Pros: Very nice atmosphere, Lovely teas, many rare chinese ones, Staff very knowledgeable about the teas

Cons: Quite expensive, Serve meat/fish at lunchtime

Nice Salad and Cake - Edit

We had a yummy Lime and Lemon Cake, nice summer salad and the Rye with beets and avoided instead of cauliflower as they ran out. There were 2 vegan cake options, 2 open sandwich, 2 salads, 1 soup with bread. However Soup was not available on the day. Very busy area. There was a queue at the till. We had to pay before they serve us. Cake slice was nice but too small and quite expensive £3.90. Food portions were small. Nice as a once off.

Pros: Vegan Options

Cons: Expensive, Small portions, Long waiting time at till

Tranquil vegan-friendly tea shop in Cardiff city centre - Edit

My Mum and I visited this tea shop 4 times on our 3 day visit to Cardiff due to the friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere, and well labelled vegan options.

Pros: Great city centre location (near to but different , Tasty vegan options (especially cake and breakfast, Friendly staff

Cons: Currently no vegan sandwich options (but other veg
