Anna Loka is proud to be Cardiff’s first 100-per-cent vegan café. Since opening in 2015, the venue has gone from strength to strength and has gained quite a following. With wooden tables, gorgeous wall art and a serene ambience, it’s a relaxing place to be. My companion loved her generous starter of olives and tasty bread, followed by Krishna’s Mighty Bowl, comprising sweet marinated tofu, layered veg, rice and edible pansies. My Anna Loka Rodeo burger was a deeply flavoursome favourite, with delicious homemade tomato ketchup to boot. By night, the café is transformed into a delightful restaurant. When we visited, the restaurant was pleasantly full with varied clientele, some even collecting takeaways. I scoffed coffee and walnut cake for afters, while my companion rhapsodised over her chocolate and salted caramel cake. The team makes the vast majority of the food in-house, sourcing clever alternatives to animal derivatives and changing the menu biannually with consideration and creativity.
