Why we love it

Another stellar foodie addition to the city centre's burgeoning indie food and drink collective, QSK has undoubtedly strengthened Quay Street and Womanby Street's claim as Cardiff's very own parallel universe of ultra-visit-worthy indie deliciousness.

Boasting a dazzling array of kaleidescopic salads, grilled cheese brunches, epiphany-inducing cake and perfectly poised coffee (roasted and shipped in from the caffeine cats at Plug Coffee out in Dinas Powys), this is a minimalist brunch-come-lunch gem that, although you've probably moseyed past a dozen times, you'll not want to miss again.

Inside, white-washed walls and a sweeping wooden lunch table (elevated, set atop yellow Skandi style stools and regularly fringed by a generous handful of hungry souls) set the stage. A perpetual tinkling of pastel-hued coffee cups fills the airwaves, the kitchen team glide purposefully from coffee grinder to salad bar and QSK's floor to ceiling brown paper menu rustles gently with every passing customer (arms loaded with salad boxes and slow-cooked meaty fixins, of course). Here, colourful home-made morsels are guaranteed and the emphasis for each and every meal is firmly placed on freshness, affordability and local sourcing - which we love.

Great service, food that is as gratifying as it is simple and an enviable city centre location: for brekkie or lunch in this part of town, you couldn't want anything more.


Does a tender slow-cooked pulled pork sandwich with melted cheese and tangy slaw sound epic? You betcha... head to QSK and get stuck in
