Located a few steps from Cardiff Castle, this minimal coffee shop oozes a bit of Paris with the chairs set up outside. Service is friendly and it's a great location to people watch with a warm coffee in hand from the window.
One of my favourite designs in the city. Lufkin Clare Road opened up shop September 2019, in addition to their Pontcanna location in Kings Road. The perfect minimal scandi space to work from your laptop. If you're a fan of interiors you'll appreciate the light space and raw textures. One of the best filter coffees I've tasted and they also offer events in the space. Pottery classes are on a Tuesday night.
One of the cosiest coffee shops in Cardiff. They also serve the best nutella hot chocolate. In winter, blankets are placed on the chairs on the outside tables. I also love the mismatched furniture inside.
Rated one of the best coffee shops in Cardiff, Hard Lines is based in Cardiff indoor market. It's literally a whole in the wall, but with quirky design. The long black gives Australia a run for it's money!
