Myself and my partner have been to every coffee shop in Cardiff and Corner are by far the best; the location is beautiful, the shop is unique, the staff can't do enough and most importantly the coffee is absolutely stunning. Good value for money too when you compare to mainstream places that serve hot water with a hint of coffee and a lot of milk. You can actually enjoy the drink in peace whilst watching the hustle and bustle of Cardiff. My favorite part of the coffee shop is that it's so relaxed in there! You never get rushed through and you actually feel like the barista's care :) they always bring local and independent brands into the store through the different coffee brands they use (it changes quite frequently!) On top of that they serve donuts which are v v tasty with a quite a few flavor options (aero is next level).

These guys know coffee. Walking in you are greeted by an amazing set up with their beautiful espresso nachine and grinders on the counter. All staff are helpful and happy to assist with questions and with what choose. I went for an oat milk flat white which was just perfect, the correct size and served with Minor Figures (my fave!) Will go here EVERY time I am in Cardiff I am sure! Big 10/10!

If you want perfect coffee and amazing service I definitely recommend corner coffee. They change up their guest roasters often so there's always something different but have a delicious house too if you want something familiar. They have a great breakfast and brunch menu and do banging doughnuts which sell out on the regular. If you want a sugary, oversized, basic af coffee then by all means f*ck off to a Starbucks down the road. But if you want independent, DELICIOUS and impeccable coffee, you gotta get yourself here.

Have had some expensive coffee in my time but paying nearly £3 for a large Latte which thought was reasonable but then it might as well have been an espresso the size it was was! Guessing a small comes in a shot glass 🤣 nothing to write home about when there are so many amazing places in cardiff to try. Besides location which is spot on, the coffee was burned and the size was leaving something to be desired. Also the only food they serve us donuts. Left my coffee felt but taken advantage of to be honest wouldn't bother visiting again. Nothing special sadly 👎 😔 shame as could be so much more

I've lived in Cardiff for the last 12 months and ALWAYS drop into Corner Coffee for a flat white! Always amazing, never disappointed. More recently, my mum and puppy were visiting and we walked into Cardiff and stopped at Corner Coffee for a drink and a bacon butty in the sun. The wonderful staff were happy to accommodate my mum's request for crispy bacon and even brought some water out for the puppy. The butty was a solid 15/10, so much so my mum insisted on us visiting again a couple of days later! Can't go wrong here - awesome coffee, incredible donuts and the loveliest staff.

Yesterday morning, we were lucky enough to start our day sitting outside Corner Coffee having breakfast whilst watching Cardiff wake up. The tea, coffee, 1 vegan breakfast and 1 veggie breakfast we ordered were absolutely delicious and really satisfyingly filling and the staff were lovely, friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend and hope to make a return visit next time we're in Cardiff. PS spotless loo too ! always a reassuring sign !

Always spot on coffee and a top selection of beans to buy. Latest addition of some of the best donuts in Cardiff (we're lucky to have load a lot of great donuts) is an added bonus. Ignore the numpties moaning.

After reading other people’s reviews I thought this sounds like it is going to be high end . Sad to say I was a little disappointed . We chose the the full breakfast . Skinny sausage reminded me of a Hipkins sausage in flavour . Not sure if it was . It said it included bubble and squeak on the menu . The size of it was like a button mushroom on the plate . Didn’t really add anything to the plate really and also lacked in flavour . A generous potion of beans in a ramekin dish which was cold . Bacon was good . The sourdough toast was nice . The fried egg over not a runny yolk and was crispy and also cold . The halloumi was nice . No choice of tomato on menu to add . I had high expectations on the coffee . Not the best I have ever had and again quite cold . The staff were nice and friendly . Over all experience it was ok . Not terrible but I wouldn’t rush back at £35 for 2 breakfasts, I croissant and some drinks .

Very nice coffee made with care. The staff are operating very carefully and considerately under the current restrictions. Not only care for customers but care over their products from weighing the shots to consistently power tamping the espresso. Nice.

I was introduced to this coffee shop by a friend a while ago, and since then, I've visited nearly every day, sometimes twice a day. I really enjoy their chai tea and biscoff banana bread. However, I've decided I won't be returning. Recently, a new staff member joined who has shown a noticeable attitude. I was wearing an expensive hoodie treated with an over-dye process for a unique three-dimensional dust appearance then could be perceived as dirt to a closed minded person. This staff member glared at one of the 'blotches' on my hoodie and has since been noticeably cold towards me, I can only assume she considers me to be lacking in personal hygiene. She places my cup on the counter instead of handing it to me like the others do and today, she stamped my loyalty card without touching it and flicked it back at me with her nail. While this may seem like overthinking, I've had similar experiences with her ever since she noticed my hoodie, and it feels intentional each time we interact. This is a shame because the rest of the staff are very nice. Aside from this one staff member, my only other complaint is that I've gained weight and lost all definition in my abs from indulging in too many desserts. I wish the rest of the staff the best of luck, as I've become quite fond of many of them during my time there.

Hands down the friendliest and most chilled out coffee (and more!) spot you could ever hope for. Plenty of outside areas to people-watch, or spaces inside to get a bit of work done. Have a pastry, sandwich or cake and some fantastic coffee, you won't regret it. Visit their Quay St venue for soft serve coffee ice cream, great modern business and a friendly and welcoming team. Thanks CC for always putting a smile on our faces!

Loved the vibes in this coffee shop. Staff were super friendly which made for a really nice and relaxed Sunday morning brunch. My friend and I both had a breakfast bap and we both agreed that it was amazing - yolk cooked to perfection too. Will definitely be returning!

Corner Coffee is the not-so hidden gem of Cardiff's High Street. Their knowledge of coffee is second to none and it's made clear by the quality of every coffee produced by their baristas. Their Corner Breakfast is divine - whoever thought to add halloumi to breakfast deserves a raise!

Corner Coffee is hands down the best coffee shop in Cardiff. Their staff are always friendly and their service is excellent. They have rebounded brilliantly from the Covid lockdown offering a small selection of amazing donuts. I love the place. And wish I lived in Cardiff so I could visit more often!

Cardiff is known for its coffee scene And corner coffee is by far the best place to go in town! The atmosphere is always super friendly and nothing is too much of an ask. If you like giving money to Starbucks and Costa for a crappy coffee I would suggest getting behind this great independent coffee shop! You might not be able to get a 20oz latte but the actually quality of the coffee is out of this world. Plus they serve donuts too. It’s a win-win, great coffee and food
