I've been going to uncommon for the last few years. It's my favourite place to catch up with friends, meet new people or just grab a coffee by myself. The service is great, comfy seats, great lighting and they always play some great music!

I enjoyed a delicious Flat White Coffee, excellent service and a chilled out read in this cafe during the madness outside (xmas shopping and rugby). A lovely independent experience with really kind and welcoming servers. Will be back if ever in Cardiff again.
