“an interesting place for a coffee”
Reviewed 5 April 2013 via mobile

a little hidden gem in Cardiff Bay away from the busy main stream coffee shops.

If you visit you will need to go through airport security style entrance.

“Interesting Building”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

Nice to see where all the action takes place. Very reasonably priced cafe/gift shop. Quite tranquil compared to Houses of Parliament. Lovely view over the bay.

“Something a bit different - and free!”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

Whilst visiting the bay the other day with family visiting we wondered in for the first time, into the building. Instead of an officious approach from the staff, we were met with a warm welcome and invited in. Yes - you have to pass quickly through the scanner and security but its no big deal and infact not only important but reminds those attending of the importance for security. The guy at the information desk was extremely helpful and friendly. We were allowed to wonder, within reason and then a guide made herself free to show us to other areas. All very interesting and informative.
