I’ve written about the Embassy Cafe before - I was wowed with their vegan cakes, and since then have been determined to go back.
The Embassy Cafe is a hidden gem on Cathays Terrace. If you didn’t know it was there, you’d probably walk straight past without giving it a second glance. It looks a little run down from the outside, and you’d be forgiven for being completely unaware that it was even a cafe. But inside, it’s a different story.
Today, the place was packed – the cafe itself is quite small and my friends and I struggled to find somewhere to sit. As a result, the atmosphere was fantastic and we settled in immediately.
Alongside their everyday menu of homemade vegetarian sandwiches and cakes, there is a different main meal and soup option which changes each day.
Today’s main meal was a potato and coconut curry with tomato and chickpea curry, sweet and sour red cabbage and basmati rice, while the soup was chickpea.
I opted for the main meal – which was deliciously warming on a chilly afternoon. Both curries were very tasty, and at £5 for a generous portion I thought it was a bargain.
My friend went for the chickpea soup which was served with homemade bread.
The Embassy Cafe prides itself on its ‘simple but thoughtful homemade vegetarian food’. Where possible they like to use organic, fairtrade and local ingredients too. What more can you ask for in a lunch?
