After having tested it throughly, I can also confirm that the coffee is just as good as the bread. The two go hand in hand really and I can highly recommend the cappuccino. The filter coffee is on tap so you can refill as often as you like, no doubt this will be a popular option with the students once exam times come around again.
Ceri treated us to the French toast which was a slight twist on the usual as it was served with homemade brioche. It tasted just as heavenly as it sounds. Topped liberally with cinnamon and powdered sugar it was the perfect winter treat to round off our lazy Saturday morning.
It goes without saying that you don't have to eat in, you can pick up your cakes, coffee and bread to go. Saying that, I'd recommend that you take the time and eat in and get cosy with the lovely jazz music and warm decor.
The Early Bird is a welcome addition to Cardiff's rapidly expanding food scene, especially right on my own doorstep. No doubt I'll be back sooner rather than later.
