    Went in for breakfast a week ago. My partner had the breakfast and it was fantastic. The builders mug of tea finished it off nicely. Food was excellent. The staff are so friendly and helpful and couldn't have been more accommodating. Will visit again today with my son. Great vegetarian options too. Lots to choose for everyone on the menu at a very reasonable price. Nothing too much trouble. Lovely place

    Me and my boyfriend popped into elmers today for a cooked breakfast. The food was outstanding, the service from staff members was very friendly and customer focused. Very clean and homely cafe to go to. We will most definitely be returning regularly and will be recommending to family and friends for sure. Thank you very much for a lovely breakfast and a great service. Please continue your high standard family cafe :)

    Enjoyed breakfast at Elmer’s. Excellent value and very tasty. There is a real community feel in the cafe. The staff are helpful with fast service and know the names of their regulars. My friend had a hunters chicken meal which she thoroughly enjoyed. Will definitely visit again.

    I visited Elmers on the first Monday of half term with my mum and 4 children. They accommodated us with no fuss and were so helpful. Everyone ordered food and the meals were delivered piping hot 10 minutes later. We were all made to feel so welcome and the staff are polite, pleasant and really care how their customers enjoy their cafe. Everyone enjoyed their meals so much. My mum is always nervous about eating out as she shakes badly, but the gentlemen who took our order was so kind and attentive. Fabulous food, fabulous staff, fabulous price. Definitely another visit is in order when we are in Cardiff again.

    My husband has just been for breakfast at Elmer's Take a Break Cafe this morning for the first time. He just phoned me and said it was AWESOME! Definitely the best breakfast he has had. This place deserves all the wonderful reviews. Added bonus as well, the price is far more reasonable than a lot of other places he has tried in this area. There is no doubt that he will be wanting to return, very soon!

    Best breakfast in Cardiff and the owner is fantastic. Didn’t have cash on me so he said sit down and pay after meal atm across the road. Food was great

    Breakfast is amazing, however there should be an option of having veggie sausages rather than just not having any sausages if you’re a vegetarian or just don’t eat pork.

    We payed this cafe a visit on Sunday for lunch and the place was jam packed and still the service was friendly and fast. The food was amazing and they catered to my daughters needs with a smile and some jokes. She lived it. Food was UNDERPRICED. Yes thats right, I felt it was so cheap so we left the staff a well deserved tip. Outside now has an amazing cover now and is heated which gives the cafe much needed extra seating. Cant reccomend this place enough it doesn't try to be something its not so if you are looking for smashed avocado or a flat white then its not for you but we left with full bellies and a smile, plus a lot of change in our pockets.

    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 👍
