Why we love it

This quirky little space inside the Victorian Duke Street Arcade has transformed an empty shop unit into a deli, cafe, bar, exhibition space and live music spot - all rolled into one glorious venue.

Sunday to Wednesday, it's all about chilled out vibes and the salad bar; a wide variety of vegan fare to eat in or take away, and plenty of decent beer on tap.

Once Thursday comes along, opening hours are extended until almost midnight, and live music, guest DJs and regular events and exhibitions turn this into a buzzy inside-outside venue where Cardiff's creative types come to hang out. We like very much!

The burger and salad are absolutely lush! Lovely venue, good people, delicious food. So glad businesses like this are opening up Cardiff’s arcades later- they’re the best thing about the city. Ruin have it spot on, go go go!


Lovely little find in the arcades serving great food and beer. Loved the plants and general cool decor.


Good food in a nice location, very relaxed
