“A brilliant café (If not the best) in Roath”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2012

I stumbled upon Café Sereno about 5 years ago when I first moved to Cardiff and it set the standard for small, clean, welcoming Cafés with a high standard of food at ridiculously low prices. The staff are fantastic and the service is amazing.

They have a great range of food which is consistently great, and is open early in the morning through until rather later at night. (They also sell alcohol)

I recently moved back to Roath and have started to go to Sereno's as frequently as I used to, bringing more and more friends as they spread the word.

The owner (Sean) is often found cooking (And never seems to take time off) and the second Chef (Who I'm not sure of his name) is forever working and again never seems to take time off.

It does appear that most of the waiting staff are ginger......a theme maybe?!

It's a pity they don't have a functioning website, they use to it seems until it got taken and used for malware so be warned when searching for their site.

All in all a great Café which I can't praise highly enough!!
