Tucked away just off the High Street is one of Cardiff’s hidden gems. Cardiff MADE is a family-friendly artist-run venue that’s firmly rooted in the community, with a welcoming café at its heart. Bump into artists, designers, friends and neighbours, chatting while enjoying affordable dishes from the simple but quality menu. Everything is freshly made using seasonal, locally sourced, and often organic ingredients. For breakfast, granola is created using local honey, and the bread, pastries and cakes are sourced from local artisan bakers. Salads feature smoked meats, Welsh cheeses, homemade hummus and chutneys, and the top secret Welsh rarebit recipe, containing locally brewed beer, is a menu staple. Healthy juices and delicious smoothies seal the deal. Reflecting café culture, the atmosphere is homely and lively, plus there’s always a new exhibition to see and products to buy in the shop.
