Easter’s not just about eggs, you know. Treat your sweet tooth this weekend with Sarah Philpott’s choice of chocolate champions.

Avocado & Chocolate Cake @ Waterloo Tea 

This avocado and chocolate cake is tasty and healthy (it’s green, right?) plus it’s vegan!

Where: 21-25 Wyndham Arcade, Cardiff CF10 1FH

Chocolate Porridge @ Penylan Pantry

Now here’s a sweet start to the day: chocolate porridge! Can be made with a variety of plant milks if you’re off the dairy – we like it with hazelnut so that it tastes like Nutella.

Where: 72 Kimberley Road, Cardiff CF23 5DN

Chocolate Milkshake @ The Grazing Shed

Cardiff’s best burger joint has a new addition to its menu! This chocolate milkshake is sure to bring all the boys to the yard

Where:  37 St Mary Street, Cardiff CF10 1AD and 1 Barrack Lane, Cardiff CF10 2FR

Chocolate Mousse @ Garlands

How’s this white chocolate mousse with popping candy for a showstopper?

Where: 4 Duke Street, Cardiff CF10 1AZ

Fudge Sundae @ Science Cream

Pop into Wales’ only liquid nitrogen ice cream parlour and enjoy this fantastic fudge sundae with hot chocolate sauce, marshmallow and peanut fudge. Drool.

Where: 28 Castle Arcade, Cardiff CF10 1BW

Awesome Hot Chocolate @ Outpost

This cool little record store and coffee shop is one of Wriggle Cardiff’s favourite hideaways in the city centre. The hot chocolate is super tasty and can also be made with oat milk for a dairy-free treat.

Where: Castle Emporium, Womanby St, Cardiff CF10 1BS

French Toast @ The Early Bird

This French Toast looks pretty perfect to us. That's our brunch sorted this weekend.

Where:  38 Woodville Road, Cathays, Cardiff, CF24 4EB

Double Scoops  @ Coco Gelato

This family-run ice cream parlour is seriously sweet and it serves some of the best sundaes in Wales. And vegans rejoice: there’s a selection of dairy-free sorbets on offer too.

Where: 133B Woodville Road, Cardiff CF24 4DZ

Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti @ Wally’s 

This delicious deli is a bit of a Cardiff institution and it’s no wonder when you see some of the sweet treats on offer at its Kaffeehaus. These chocolate hazelnut biscotti look pretty dreamy to us.

Where: 38-46 Royal arcade, Cardiff CF10 1AE

Cacao & Avocado Cake @ Milgi

This hip and happening herbivore hang-out does some GREAT cake and many are vegan and gluten free. This cacao and avocado cake is scrummy.

Where: 213 City Road, Cardiff CF24 3JD


Oreo Chocolate Cake @ Anna Loka

Cardiff’s first 100% vegan restaurant is one of Wriggle Cardiff’s top spots for a good feed. Will you just look at this Oreo chocolate cake?

Where: 114 Albany Road, Roath, Cardiff CF24 3RU

Chocolate & Peanut Cookies @ The Moos

Did someone say cookies? Wriggle can verify that these vegan chocolate and peanut cookies are pretty darn good. We challenge you to stop at just one…

Where: 114 Whitchurch Rd, Cardiff CF14 3LY

Chocolate & Coconut Flapjack @ Kemi’s

This lovely little lunch spot is best known for its super salads but check out the sweet treats on offer, too. This vegan chocolate and coconut flapjack goes very well with a cuppa.

Where: 186-188 Kings Road, Canton, Cardiff CF11 9DH

Churros & Hot Chocolate Sauce @ Curado

Churros and hot chocolate sauce make for the perfect pudding – or breakfast for that matter…

Where: 2 Guildhall Place, Cardiff CF10

Croissant & Chocolate Dipping Sauce @ Nata

Our favourite Portugese bakery is popular for its custard tarts but if you fancy a change, this croissant and chocolate dipping sauce isn’t a bad way to go…
