Three of us were spoilt for choice at this delightful eateriy, even with the rarebits sold out! Favourites were the pulled pork pancakes with maple syrup (which we shared as well as a main course each). We were offered extra maple syrup as 'you can never have too much!' And the Eggs Royal were amazing. Really friendly and informative staff. Just too full to try the very tempting desert menu, which sounded mouthwatering and was extensive. The only downside was that perhaps the dishwasher was not performing efficiently as we could taste that it had not rinsed properly on the water carafe, which was a shame as the carafe came with ice, mint leaves and lemon. Apologies for not raising this at the time as we know the staff would have probably rectified it quickly. We would definitely return if we lived locally.

We decided to try Garlands after reading good reviews and it certainly lived up to expectations. The staff all seemed genuinely keen to help and the food was really good (big portions!). The candle on the table was a nice touch, never had a candle lit breakfast before! A lovely atmosphere to the place too, very welcoming. Will definitely be back next time we visit Cardiff!

I visited here a few years ago and was very disappointed but on a recent trip we tried Garlands again and very pleasantly surprised with the standard of the food and the service-they take the time to have good quality products and had fantastic sausages!!

Lovely food and atmosphere. Long wait due to a large party ordering just before us but it was worth it! Excellent value and friendly staff.

This quaint little coffee shop in the lovely victorian Duke Street Arcade is the bomb! The BLT (with avocado) is to die for but make sure you have the granary bread toasted. Today i tried the rarebit and it was seriously the best i've ever had... I want more! Faggots and Cawl next! Yummy!
