Awesome service with a smile - lovely Irish girl serving great coffee and cakes. Nice bistro tables on the way through the park area just out from city centre - a must visit! Love the "You Got This" on the cups!

This place fully saved me during the winter lockdown by giving me a reason to get out of the house every day, to interact with friendly familiar faces who make lovely coffees and cheer me up on bad days. Thank you Brodies! They also do...a lovely scheme where you can pay for a coffee and they will give it to someone less fortunate. What a lovely ethical local business to support! My extra hot coffees got me through the winter and the lovely ice coffees are making my sunny days even better now! They even give treats to my dog! I always recommend this coffee stop to friends and family. If you haven't been yet, you must check it out! :)More

Brodies has been my ‘go to’ for coffee for over a year (I know it’s taken a while for me to write this review) but honestly the staff are all wonderful and friendly, the coffee is heavenly and to top it all off you get...a little positive affirmation boost with every cup! Absolutely love everything they stand for and anytime I have a bad day I know I can pop to the hut and all is right again. Thank you for being you! See you soon, You got this! GMore

This little coffee shop has kept me and my family going through lockdown with not only the absolutely amazing coffee and cakes, but also their great spirit and humour. Love this little coffee shop and have lost count of how many times I have visited...by now. (Their toasties are also pretty delish!)More

Best coffee in Cardiff without a doubt (and I’ve lived there for 7 years). Mr Brodie and his team always deliver tasty coffee with great chat and genuinely care about you and your day. Best baked treats too and always something different to try!

Best coffee !! Always want to buy 2 as 1 isn’t enough, staff are so friendly and always up for a chat. I have closer cafes but it’s always worth the extra walk !

Always friendly, great coffee and baked goods, particular shout out to the Ty Melin Almond Pain au Chocolat. Feels inviting whatever the Cardiff weather and on a sunny day, perfect. Do yourself a favour on follow their Instagram, one of my favourite uplifting accounts.

As students, Broadies is our go-to place for coffee and anything YUMMY!! Highly recommend the coconut and raspberry flapjacks. Broadies is the only place we've found that doesn't charge for alternative milks, e.g. oats, and offers student discounts! Friendliest staff ever and we are so...excited to hear about their expansion to a new location. Bonus - we love their instagram, we even won a giveaway and have invested in some of their merch!More

warm welcome in the pouring rain - fab coffee and service. Met up with our daughter for coffee and cake ( her b'day). Sat under the tree which was sheltered from the pouring rain. Excellent choice coffees / cakes. Had huge cinnamon buns!
