Cafe Sereno does great breakfasts, dinners and snacks. I eat there a lot, and have yet to be disappointed. Great atmosphere, food and service. The main meals have a great Italian touch - the meatballs have to be tasted to be believed.
A monthly market (held every first Sunday) which takes place either inside or outside the Milgi bar on City Road (an eclectric bar/bistro with video art, squashy sofas, chandeliers and a good line in cocktails and homemade pop).
It's a bit of a hotchpotch of jumble, young designers, live music, DJs, the odd random performance artist, maybe a BBQ, maybe some nice hot soup...
It's genuinely really great for hand printed tees and pumps, jewellery, second-hand books, vinyl, vintage-rummaging, people-watching, cake-eating, cocktail-drinking... And sometimes it happens at night too, which can be very, very good.

This is a pub very close to the city centre, near the Institiute of Welsh Sport and Sophia Gardens cricket ground. It has a good choice of real ales, mainly from Wales. If you'd like to hear Welsh spoken, all staff are fluent and this is a popular pub among the Welsh capital's sizable Welsh speaking community.
