Why we love it?

Cardiff’s quintessential nice cup of tea and a sit down can be had at Pettigrew Tea Rooms. Established back in 2012 in the gate house of the main entrance to Bute Park, the quaint setting is matched perfectly by Pettigrew’s eclectic chintzy crockery which is displayed on the walls and shelves. Killer cakes and scones sit in a cabinet at the front of the tea room for you to drool at on your way in. They’re all lovely from the coffee and walnut down to the lemon drizzle but the carrot cake is perhaps the pick of the bunch. Understandably afternoon tea is a big thing at Pettigrew’s and it’s served properly on two tiered cake stands with loose leaf tea. But, Pettigrew’s are not only about the tea and cake as stonking Welsh breakfasts are served with freshly baked laverbread scones.

Wriggle Highlights
  • Take a stroll around Bute Park to work up an appetite
  • Try something innovative like the rose and pistachio cake or stick to a classic
  • Freshly baked scones flecked with laverbread come with the Welsh breakfast

“if you arrive before 11:45am you have to try the Full Welsh Breakfast. If you're looking for something light but with a taste of local history then go for the Welsh Cream tea - and if you want to sample the best of everything we do, then have the Full Afternoon Tea”
