Coffee #1: The Right Ambiance!

Coffee #1: The Right Ambiance!

It’s a sunny, beautiful afternoon and we want to be out and about: just because… We have made our way along Albany Road, just off City Road, an area known for a hive of activity any time of day (or night). As usual, there’s a lot of traffic both vehicular and people. People are busy … Continue reading

It has ‘All Nations Church’ written on the … Continue reading

London Coffee Festival

London Coffee Festival

One week ago, Cardiff Coffee together with Cardiff Confidential decided to have a nice day out in London. Our bus ride took three hours (Megabus simply was the cheapest option) but unfortunately we weren’t as lucky to have wifi on our coach. However, Angry Birds proved to be more addictive than anticipated and time passed … Continue reading
