Servini’s Snack Bar, Cardiff

St. David’s Day in Cardiff: the parade, live music, dancing, inflatable daffodils and flags. Watching all this activity made me hungry, so I headed for Servini’s Snack Bar in the Wyndham Arcade for one of their renowned all-day breakfasts.

It was 15 years ago today that Servini’s first opened in the Wyndham’s Arcade; having been at a nearby location for around 15 years prior to that.

It’s a family-run traditional café (manager Melvyn Bishop) noted for its breakfasts and hot baguettes. They also do a range of pasta dishes, burgers, large salads and jacket potatoes. I go for the full breakfast (bacon, sausage, egg, toast - opting for the mushrooms rather than beans or tomato) with tea served in a Servini’s mug (£5.60 total).

Today, there were daffodils on the tables. Servini's is Eat in or Take away, it has newspapers to read, plenty of seating inside and also outside in the covered arcade, and the premises are fully licensed.

I left fully satisfied and ready for more St David's Day activity.
