Trade Street Cafe - Hunt for Cardiff's Best Breakfast

Trade Street Café has been on my to visit list for yonks.

In fact, in that time they’ve closed down, changed hands and reopened after an £80,000 refurbishment.

However, due to their advertised weekday opening hours & the fact I don’t work anywhere near their City Centre location, it looked like I’d never get to visit…

Apparently though, they are open on Saturdays they just don’t tell you on their website, Twitter account or Google business listing. This might explain why I had their rather lovely dining space all to myself when I popped in last weekend after dropping Mrs G off at the station.

The breakfast – Full Welsh Breakfast

The price - £6.95

Pros – Meaty mushrooms, thick salty bacon and fresh toasted bloomer

Cons – Winey Toulouse sausages were too potent for a fry-up and just the one fried egg felt a bit stingy

Beverages – A full-bodied Americano (£1.95) 

Verdict – Trade Street Café is a lovely place to relax with the weekend papers and their breakfast is pretty good, if a little modest in proportions.

  2. Oh, and they serve laverbread in their breakfast, but no cockles I'm afraid.
