Milk & Sugar

 

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 09.59.58Let’s face it; eating out is something we all love to indulge in, once in a while! Despite our love for eating out, at times independent restaurants often get overlooked in favour of larger chain restaurants. With this in mind, here at Printed Menus we went on a quest to find the best independent cafes in Cardiff!

Having visited Buffalo Bar for the first time a few weeks ago, I unexpectedly encountered Milk & Sugar. Knowing I had to go to a third independent café for my third and final ‘Cafés in Cardiff’ blog, I decided to visit for ‘work’ (but mostly coffee & cake…).
