Why we love it?

This yellow-bricked Cathays based café and artisan bakery have it nailed when it comes to baked goods, coffee and cosiness. Organic sourdough bread is made fresh every day using flour from Talgarth Mill. They roast their own coffee in the bread oven and when they're on the menu, their waffles are an absolute treat. Pictures, drawings and trinkets adorn the white washed walls and there's even a secret garden hideaway out-back.

With its eclectic indie vibe, Early Bird is a great place to kick back and enjoy a relaxed brunch or afternoon cuppa. Their cooked brunches include the irreverently named Hulk Smash (avocado, eggs and chipotle sauce on toast) and Let’s Get Ready to Crumble (brioche French toast topped with plum, apple and ginger compote and crunchy crumble). Of course no brunch is complete without dessert, right? Early Bird’s home-baked cinnamon swirls, salted caramel and pretzel brownies, and custard filled brioche doughnuts are all superb.
