So I thought I would throw this one out to the floor and get some feedback. I would love to hear what places people love to visit. Maybe there is a place I have never heard of? Maybe one great for getting some work done? Or just good value?
Now I love Starbucks, it's perfect for a grab and go. But when I feel like meeting up with a friend, there are plenty of great independent tea and coffee shops to visit. Each one offering something different, whether it is price, atmosphere or location. Here are a few of my favourites.
So your in the city centre and you fancy a coffee break? Then I would recommend Atlantic Coffee. When it comes to quality and value, Atlantic Coffee is perfect for all budgets and if the weather is nice, why not sit outside and enjoy the view of the castle?
Located at the quieter end of City Road, a Shot in the Dark is one of those cool places that you surprise a friend with, acting like you knew it was there all along. It's part coffee shop, part bar, and the food is above standard for both. And they do the best cheesecake ever.
Tea and Cake is a quirky little place on Wellfield Road. I've spent a small fortune buying all the Rob Ryan products that they sell here. Being right near Roath park, makes it a great place to stop by mid-afternoon on your way to or from the park. It also has a great little garden, making it perfect for families as well.
What is your favourite place? Are there any you would recommend?
