This lovely little family deli lies quietly in the sleepy, leafy back streets of Roath. It's in its eighth year of service and has built up a seriously loyal local following in that time, with everybody from hungry students to thirsty Sunday congregations squeezed around the polka-dot table tops.
Alongside serving delicious Deli products and cheeses, breakfast, lunch and dinner are all on the menu (and all are equally revered in their own right).
For breakfast, classics such as Eggs Benedict and the Deli Breakfast are praised highly, while their Welsh cakes are the stuff of legend. Meanwhile, for lunch, a glorious selection of fillings and breads make for the ultimate deli sub, reclaiming what it really means to Eat Fresh. We loved the Mighty Mustard (Blacky ham, mustard, Y-Fenni mustard seed cheese) and the Welsh Way (a sandwich brimming with organic Perl Las blue cheese, slices of pear and a date and walnut chutney).
Excellent food and service, the new menu took us by surprise as the deals were for items no longer available. That said, the staff were very accommodating and made sure we were both service. Don’t miss this hidden gem.
Kooky place! Restaurant deli and intimate music venue combined into one.
We had an amazing dinner at Deli Rouge. The atmosphere of the place feels so personal, and the service from Louis was excellent. Not to mention fantastic food and drink. A hidden gem in Cardiff, and we’ll be back soon!
Amazing family run place with the most incredible selection of tapas and wine. We had a lovely table outside and watched the world go by - couldn’t recommend it more highly and we’ll definitely be back!
Really nice place, quaint with a good atmosphere. Good food and excellent service.
Quality of the produce used clearly very high, but portions very small for the price paid. Quirky little place, nice staff.
