Love coffee? And cake? And fashion? Then tucker on 23 Salisbury Road is the right place for you! New to Cardiff’s coffee scene, this cosy cafe has just opened in Cathays recently and promises to become a favourite hangout for Cardiff students.
Friendly and enthusiastic couple Lewis and Laura Tucker decided to go into the coffee shop business after working in magazines for years. They found the perfect spot for their café in Cardiff last year and after some three and a half months of preparations and renovations they opened their doors to coffee lovers.
The coffee is, of course, is fantastic! Lewis says he’s always loved coffee and takes great care in preparing a good latte. Their coffee blend is Montes Claros from Brazil roasted at Clifton Coffee Company in Bristol and it tastes sweet, fruity and rich. So tasty! Especially if you like a strong, smooth coffee. And it’s fair-trade, too.
Cardiffians, especially the students among you: you’ll love this place! It has a friendly, vibrant, cool and laid back atmosphere, you get great coffee. Prices are reasonable, especially on a student budget. You’ll get an Americano for just £1.75 and a Latte is £2 and the cakes start around £1. There is free wifi, too, so why not write your next assignment here? This could be a more than welcome change from your desk…
The cakes are homemade or bought from local bakeries, and they serve breakfast and snacks for lunch. Chocolate lovers, try the rocky road. They are unbelievably chocolaty! And very possibly, they might open up their place in the evening and serve dinner… Not yet, but who knows what the future brings?
Now, enough about coffee and cakes and all that, though. Let’s talk fashion!! Fashionistas among you may also like the great selection of fashion and celebrity magazines. You can relax and catch up with the latest fashion trends and gossip of your favourite stars. They proudly stock Stylist, a fabulous fashion magazine that is out every Wednesday and it’s free! Go to tucker, have a coffee and get your free copy!
We and wish Lewis and Laura all the best… We really love this place (so do our coursemates), so we highly recommend it! What are you waiting for? Go check out tucker!!
