Coffee Rex Llandaff North

Andrea is rapidly establishing Coffee Rex, on the site of Lew’s much loved cafe, as a cafe which serves one of the best cups of coffee in Cardiff.

He used to run Gusto in Llandaff and it’s great to welcome him to Llandaff North now.

It’s great value. My favourite brunch there is a double espresso (£2 – delicious Trinci brand from Italy) and sausage baguette with brown sauce (£1.85)

Here are some photos.

Time for a street party! Save the date: 7 June 2015

Last year, Clarbeston Rd joined in The Big Lunch. The date for this year’s event is Sunday 7th June 2015. 
The Big Lunch is run by the Eden Project and funded by the Big Lottery and, since starting in 2009, thousands of Big Lunches have taken place across Wales and the rest of the UK. 
This June millions of people will come together for The Big Lunch, the UK’s annual get together for neighbours.  It’s a simple idea to get as many people as possible across the UK to come together in their shared spaces in a simple act of community, friendship and fun. 
You’re invited by the all-Wales organiser Gwion Thorpe to hold one in your street or area and bring your local community together: “If everyone brings a dish or some decorations and activities, you have yourself a Big Lunch! ”
To find out more, to get a Big Lunch Pack or to register your interest, go to or call 0845 850 8181.
