Eating out in Cardiff



We had lunch at Barker's coffee house twice: this one is in Castle Arcade.




Both coffee houses are decorated in the same way: comfortable leather armchairs




vintage lighting




relaxed atmosphere






always very busy




even though there is a lull at times




with good views outside so that we could people watch




flowery wallpaper on some walls, exposed plasterwork on others



The food was delicious - we had a wonderful tomato and basil soup.



For our first evening meal we went to the Potted Pig





which is located in in a former bank vault beneath the city.






It was packed when we arrived but I took these photographs as we were leaving




cosy little rooms



old plaster walls as in the previous place



The cast iron doors still in place.




Good paintings on the walls.




The second day we went to Barker's again for lunch, but the one in the High Street Arcade this time.



Same d├ęcor as the one in Castle Arcade




I had the fluffiest scrabbled eggs and my mouth waters just thinking about them.





This one is much smaller than the one in Castle Arcade and I remembered both coffee houses from our previous visit to Cardiff. They are well worth a visit.
