The Ivy Cardiff
If the weather’s right, there’s outdoor seating at The Ivy Cardiff. However, with a light-filled restaurant and bar and beautiful botanical decor, you’ll get the al fresco feel inside or out.
The menu boasts fragrant summer flavours in dishes such as roasted scallops, pea puree, parmesan sauce and grated truffle. A dedicated vegetarian and vegan menu is available on request.
The Wagamama terrace is the ideal place to take in the bustle of city life as you dine on pan-Asian dishes full of fresh coconut, lime and ginger flavours. The fantastic vegan menu has plant-based versions of some of the restaurant's most iconic dishes. Team your food with a refreshing juice, pulped and poured for you.
Recharge mid-shop with a stop at the brilliant Kin+Ilk. There’s sustainably sourced coffee, all-day brunch and artisan bakes and cakes. Don’t miss the Eggs Salvador - two crisp tortillas topped with homemade smokey beans, sour cream, jalapenos and Welsh poached eggs.
