    I have visited Elmer's many times and never disappoints. The service is so friendly and Elmer really is the heart and soul of the cafe. The breakfast is great every time (especially the veggie) and it is so cheap. Best place for a fry up!

    We visited Elmer's on the 1st of January and we found a amazing place for breakfast and lunch with plenty of dishes. The atmosphere is nice and the staff professional and kind hearted. Clean and with with very convenient location in Cathays. We really enjoyed the yummy breakfast, prices are very reasonable.

    I called in before a miserable day at the Heath Hospital, hence the title. Not only did I get a fantastic full breakfast (at a fair price), but the three waitresses (they cook too) are charming and look after you as if you're a friend. The owner is very polite and eager to ensure your meal and drink are spot on. If you want a newspaper, it'll be at your table in seconds. This is a cafe that cares. There is a refreshing flexibility in the orders, you can add items and "chop and change"; it's all about suiting you, the customer. The place is therefore the antithesis to the depressingly impersonal and uniform "chain cafes" that are strangling Cardiff. I noticed students and workers, mixing with elderly and retired. There's a real sense of community. But new faces are welcomed like friends too. There were customers from the US when I was there. My visit was a real tonic. Believe me, you will leave with a smile on your face.

    Awesome breakfast with attentive staff without being intrusive. Both of us changed some items which was no problem and no extra cost. Thoroughly recommend this cafe 👍

    What a dirty, greasy hole of a place. If you like pre-cooked food, bacon which is kept open on the side and re-heated in the bank of microwave’s this is the place to go. My food even contained a long bleached blonde hair in it, hence the staff could be seen with no hair nets on. The only thing that was cooked fresh was the greasy fried egg! This place has a sign on the front window, saying there voted best cafe by trip advisor however in the very small print, this was years ago. My colleague was even approached by the old white haired man, who introduced himself as Clifford, asking for us to write him a good report on trip advisor! This place was shockingly poor, I certainly would not recommend it to anyone!

    My student son made me walk quite a bit so I could buy him breakfast on the way telling me that we may not get a seat! We did, just. A beautifully cooked hearty breakfast, with extra toast for good measure, in a friendly and inclusive atmosphere engendered by the proprietor and his staff. This is what care in the community should really look like. Thank you.

    Cafe caters for mainly regulars good sign. Superb poached egg on toast £1.25 and milky coffee just over a pound, all served with a smile and spotlessly clean, sometimes it is difficult to get a table unless you share. Cliff the owner goes the extra mike and all staff especially Jess are superb. Downstairs unisex toilet and rear garden area

    The gentleman who greeted us was so welcoming and friendly! The place was nearly full when we arrived, with lots of regulars I believe as the conversations between staff and customers were very easy and familiar. We ordered the full breakfast which had just the right amount of food to leave us feeling comfortably full. The meal was the definition of comfort food and everything was cooked to perfection. I cannot emphasise just how hospitable and genuine the gentleman serving us was; he offered us tea refills, gave us the student discount without us asking and wished us a merry Christmas as we left. We will definitely be back!

    First of all, we came to this Breakfast place reading the very good reviews on TripAdvisor. The place is not something special, small, the WC not so clean and not so cozy. The food is good not perfect, and the man in the cashier , he is a Very gentle man and he loves his work!! Maby he is the owner!!! The prices is very cheap !!! The big problem is that this place has so much work and they can't support very well there Breakfast place!!! If you are No1 in TripAdvisor you have to be The No1!!! Anyway we had a great time. Thank you all.
