Waterloo Tea in city centre of Cardiff.

As soon as we saw this site we were in love.

Determined to not stand still, and to maintain our development, we have introduced a couple of new features.

We have moved table service. Although in our previous shops we have always had the mantra of "customers should not queue", here we will seat guests and attend to them at their tables.

We have a much more involved food menu. More breakfasts, lunches and treats. Our back of house staff outnumber the front of house! 

The teahouse is split over two floors. The upstairs seating area is perfect for private functions for up to 20 guests seated, 25 buffet style. 

Our instore bakery now supplies all three shops and has increased the range of cakes available - more vegan options, new flavour creations and, of course, still the old favourites. If you enjoy our cakes you can order a whole cake for your party - just give us a couple of days' notice.

Similar to the other teahouses, we have an art gallery which showcases stunning work.

The teahouse is licensed and can be booked out for private events in the evenings - a beautiful setting in what becomes a private historical arcade. 

We hope we are able to push the boundaries of what a cafe can be, and again are aiming to reset the benchmark for the definition of 'popping out for a cuppa'.

Of course we still serve our famous Afternoon Tea
A selection of fresh cakes, scones with clotted cream and jam, finger sandwiches and chocolate truffles  – all served on a three tier cake stand with a tea of your choice. Everything is home-made.
We bake the scones and prepare finger sandwiches to order, so it is necessary to book about a day in advance. We prefer it this way, so that everything delivered to your table has been freshly made for you.
If you have any allergies or dietary needs, then with notice, we can make you exactly what you like.
We think that Afternoon Tea makes a lovely present. Gift Vouchers are available so that you can treat friends and loved ones. To arrange personalised gift vouchers just contact us. Vouchers can be bought through our online shop also.
The cost is £15 per head
All bookings for Afternoon Tea at the Wyndham Arcade are taken over the telephone on 029 2037 6249.
