“Great for a break”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Stopped in for a tea and snack while shopping. Was lovely. Had a scone (£1.90) which was lovely, and partner had a welsh rarebit which hit the spot apparently.

“Nice vegan friendly lunch”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

Having recently turned vegan it has proven tricky to find suitable places for lunch but I noticed The Plan had a couple of options and was very impressed when I visited. I chose the vegan salad which had avocado, artichokes and olives although it lacked pine nuts even though the menu mentioned it contained them. This is only a tiny criticism on what was a very enjoyable and tasty lunch.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Popped in here for lunch recently and realised I'd found a little gem. Takes a little finding if you're not familiar with the area but worth looking out for. The best coffee I've had in Cardiff by far. They obviously take there coffee making seriously and is worth waiting for. Nice bit of latte art on top of my drink too. I'd also had the homemade roast pepper and tomato soup which was fantastic. Downstairs was very busy but plenty of tables upstairs. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The decaf was excellent if you're finding it hard to get this anywhere else.
Worth a revisit

“Independent cafe among the corporates.”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

I'm a regular customer. Food very good, coffee better. Trevor's cappucinos are the only real ones I've tasted anywhere outside Italy. Serving staff excellent and pleasant. Support your local independent business among all the predictable chain cafes elsewhere in the city.

Wonderful situation in one of Cardiff's ornate Victorian arcades which is best seen from the upstairs room.
