Coffee and tea culture in Cardiff, as in the rest of the UK, has grown hugely in recent years. Customers are becoming more discerning, though, and independent coffee and tea shops are springing up everywhere. Here are some of the best.

 

The Deck

Situated in the popular Cardiff Bay area, The Deck is a family-operated coffee house which also serves a selection of delicious cakes and pastries. Being slightly off the beaten track makes The Deck a relaxing place, and since opening in 2012 it's established an outstanding reputation. The Deck also offers classic afternoon tea.

Organicafe

Organicafe is the place to head if you're looking for a touch of Italian style with your coffee. Its welcoming atmosphere makes Organicafe a friendly spot, and its location on Caerphilly Road to the north of the city centre is convenient. Organicafe also has a surprise: a beautifully maintained garden out the back.

Nata&Co Bakery

As its name implies, Nata&Co Bakery has plenty of superb bread and cakes to try, made with Portuguese flair. The famous Nata&Co Bakery coffee is to die for and makes a perfect accompaniment to a traditional tart. With three branches in Cardiff, Nata&Co Bakery will always be within reach.

Selah Cafe & Tea Rooms

For something a little unusual, try the quirky, vintage-themed Selah Cafe & Tea Rooms in Llanishen on Cardiff's northern outskirts. Afternoon tea is a speciality, and you can relax to the music of earlier times as you sip. You may find it hard to resist the home-made cakes at Selah Cafe & Tea Rooms – extremely popular with locals and visitors alike.

Science Cream

Have you ever tried ice cream made with liquid nitrogen? At Science Cream, you can! Handily situated in Castle Arcade in Cardiff city centre, Science Cream offers many weird and wonderful flavours. The menu changes frequently, but you may find Cherry Bakewell, Bara Brith or even Whiskey and Coffee Creme filling your cone.

Sunflower and I

Another Cardiff Bay option, Sunflower and I's name gives a clue: it's associated with a working flower studio, with vases on the tables. Sunflower and I can offer a wide range of speciality tea and coffee – you can even book a Champagne Tea for a special occasion. Note that Sunflower and I is closed on Mondays.
