Why we love it

With their devotion to sourcing the world’s best teas, Waterloo Tea have been consistently raising the bar for Cardiff’s cafe scene since they first opened in Penylan in 2008. Whilst they’ve expanded to the city centre’s attractive Wyndham Arcade and to Penarth, there’s been no let-up in quality. Loose leaf teas come with a timer so you know how long it takes to brew the perfect cup, whilst coffee is made using beans from some of the best roasters around – including James and HasBean. Waterloo’s determination to seek out the best from around the world extends into to their globally-influenced food which features dishes spiced with sumac, za’tar and dukkah.
