Crumbs Kitchen, Cardiff vegetarian and vegan cafe review


In the cut-throat world of hospitality, I’m impressed when a restaurant or cafe manages to survive for more than a couple of years.

So to still be thriving after nearly half a century is pretty unbelievable.

Crumbs Kitchen, a vegetarian cafe in the Morgan Arcade originally opened in 1970. Whilst the cafe changed hands a few years ago, it still holds firm to the ethos of the original owner.

The well-priced menu comprises salad bowls (for which they’re well known), homemade soups, jacket potatoes, pies, quiches, curries and chilli. Nothing costs more than six quid and most things weigh in around £4.


Mrs G and I both ordered a small salad bowl (£3.85), which gave us a selection of three salads from the six on offer.

Everything was really fresh and tasty - sweet shredded red cabbage and carrot, nutty brown rice flecked with crunchy peanuts and a creamy coleslaw punctuated with pieces of pear. 


Mrs G added a couple of extras in the shape of tahini and garlic rich hummus (80p) and a scattering of peanuts (45p). 

 
A slice of lovely quiche (£3.35) was packed with tender broccoli and savoury stilton.

 
I would never have guessed that an organic mango and coconut cake (£2.75) was vegan. Moist, a touch dense and heady with tropical fruit, it was a lovely bit of cake. 


We had a delicious, fresh and great value quick bite to eat at Crumbs. Here’s to the next fifty years.
