The best brunch places in Cardiff.
Cities are often great for brunch and Cardiff is no exception. The Welsh capital boasts a variety of places to go for brunch which is ideal when sometimes only avocado on toast and egg benedict will cut it.
Cosy Club is perfect for lunch, dinner, drinks and especially brunch. With an extensive brunch menu offering delights such as 'Cosy Eggs' and 'Ham Hock Hash', I can particularly vouch for the Triple-Stacked Buttermilk Pancakes served with either bacon and maple syrup or strawberries, bananas and peach sauce.
If you’re feeling fancy, you can go for the 'Rather Elegant Brunch' which consists of “Bacon and avocado with herbed spring onion & chive rosti, baby kale, fire-roasted tomatoes and a sundried tomato dressing on the side, topped with a poached egg and pumpkin seeds”.
Or, if you really want to push the boat out, go for 'How The Other Half Brunch' – a lobster tail with creamed scrambled eggs, tomatoes, spinach and Puccia bread. To soften the financial blow, Cosy also offer any brunch dish and any size hot drink for just £7.95 Monday – Friday between 9-11:30 am. Better get brunching.
Tucked away on Crwys Road, Stag offers a selection of breakfast, burgers, sandwiches, cakes and drinks. The breakfast is fabulous and ranges from the classic Stag breakfast to smashed avocado on toast and pancakes with scrambled egg, bacon and maple syrup.
With its quirky interior, friendly staff and top quality food, Stag is perfect for brunch with friends where you can hide from the rain and stay inside drinking tea and chatting for hours on end. It’s in Cathays too, so there’s no need to venture into the centre of Cardiff.
Barker Tea House
Barkers is an absolute delight, and one of Cardiff’s best kept secrets. Cosily hidden away in the picturesque High Street Arcade, it’s a dream inside with beautiful décor, exuding chicness and quirkiness. The pancakes are delicious - thick, fluffy, piled high and drenched in maple syrup, bacon and blueberries.
Barker’s offer a selection of sandwiches, homemade cakes and afternoon tea - everything I’ve eaten from there has been sublime. I’d also recommend the milkshakes which come in a variety of flavours including chocolate and caramel and are exactly how a milkshake should be – rich, creamy and made with fresh ice cream. With a laid back atmosphere and great service, Barkers is well worth a visit, and you can guarantee that your parents will love it too.
At Bill's, the food is fresh, (generally) healthy, and just what you want if you’ve been out drinking the night before. The contemporary restaurant serves up a range of scrumptious brunch options including buttermilk pancakes, eggs benedict, a summer omelette and crab cake, egg and asparagus. Their juices are equally marvellous – the super greens smoothie with its combination of kale, spinach, mango, apple juice and coconut water is surprisingly good.
Barker Tea House: cake isn't technically brunch but oh well who cares?
