There's not much cooking involved more arranging......an amazing amount of excellent food on a plate. I always have brunch or lunch here when in town and because not that many people know about it it's always relatively easy to get a table. Simple food done with care.

Any time I am in Cardiff this is must for me. The shop has a food selection that is fantastic. I plan to just have something to eat up stairs but I also wind up shopping there. The staff is very helpful if you have questions.

A great place to eat if you can get a seat. Small and very busy but with lots of choice and excellent food. Downstairs is a fantastic food shop with an impressive range of local and continental food products to buy. Well worth a visit. We will go there again next time we are in Cardiff.

Met some girlfriends for lunch and had Graz for lunch. It was so amazing I bought some of the ingredients in the Deli afterwards. Good service and great food.

A special trip to visit Wallys. And my shopping basket was full of goodies. Then I noticed they have a cafe now. Just went for a coffee and it was really good. Must go for lunch next time.

I love coming to this shop and having a wander round. Only recently found out they have a restaurant upstairs and for anyone who regularly shops here, they must try the restaurant. The food is lush and you can get a mixed platter of meats and cheese which is gorgeous. The nest thing is, if there's anything you love on... More

I was walking around town, looking for a patisserie after having had a meal. I stumbled across this place, although I was more interested in the global food options they had. I then saw they had a viennoiserie upstairs, and decided to have a go. I went for a classic apple strudel, which was different to what I expected, but... More

We were visiting Wally's for some shopping and would have been remiss if we hadn't climbed the stairs for coffee. I liked the plate of continental biscuits (available to buy in the shop below), which was all we wanted. They were offering a variety of filter coffee and although I had Americano I tried the filter which was unsurprisingly very... More
