Charlotte Packaging’s Favourite Places to Eat in Cardiff

The Welsh capital is a modern, fun and welcoming city for all food fans. A destination for fine dining and food trends, we’re lucky to have this diverse location right on our doorstep.

The growth of independent traders in Cardiff is putting the city on the map. From coffee shops to delis, bars and local food focused restaurants, Cardiff’s food scene is booming.

We’re spoilt for choice when we eat in Cardiff. With so many great destinations and new places to explore, here are just some of our favourite places to eat in Cardiff:

Wally’s: this long-established delicatessen is a premier gourmet food destination in Cardiff. With a delicious range of fresh products, pantry items and gifts, Wally’s is a must visit for anyone heading to Cardiff.

KIN + ILK: with outlets in the Capital Quarter and Pontcanna, KIN + ILK are one of our favourite coffee spots in Cardiff. Supporting local suppliers like Pettigrew Bakery and WK Foods, you’ll always be sure of a warm welcome.

Arbenning: this family owned restaurant is based in Pontcanna and changes its menu every week to reflect the very best in seasonal produce from a selection of specialist suppliers.

The Grazing Shed: voted the number 1 burger joint in Wales, these Super Tidy Burgers are made to order in front of your eyes and served within minutes for the perfect rapid dining experience.
