Love this place and just ordered toast for 2, so don't know why it took 15 minutes and wasn't warm. It was quiet at 9.30 so what on earth was going on out the back? Had an appointment so didn't have time to query further. Won't stop going but come on, how is it possible to get toast wrong?

Food is overpriced and it can take a long time to come nevertheless it has a good atmosphere. The drink is also expensive and it can become a little overcrowded especially over the weekend.

The drinks we ordered were not poured correctly and not full measures. The toilets were cleanish but out of three female toilets there was not one piece of toilet paper. This is not acceptable. There appears to be no investment in the customer.

Visited many times before for food and has been great. was meeting some friends for a warm drink and a catch up. In this cold weather was craving a lovely hot chocolate with all the trimmings. I was very disappointing to find no whipped cream and marshmallows to go on my hot chocolate.

I come here more than I should because it's near where I live. It's already had a poor beer selection and middling food. Lately their beer selection has been on the wain too, and their perpetual staff shortage means plates are left on tables for ages. On busy nights there are unmanageable queues at the bar and it can be... More

Popped in for brunch on a Saturday morning. I ordered sweet potato hash with bacon and poached egg. The hash was like warm, not very tasty and the poached egg was over cooked. Bacon was fatty and pale, coffee was good. It wasn't really busy, but seemed understaffed as not enough time for staff to check with customers if the... More

Popped in here for a drink on Saturday evening. Lacks atmosphere and wouldn't rush back. Maybe it was just an off-night.

I'd highly recommend brunch here, lovely chilled atmosphere and well priced comfort food. Parking is a bit of of a pain but that's just Roath.
