Mrsuw treated me to lunch today at the newly opened Wally’s Kaffeehaus upstairs in the famous Wallys Delicatessen in Royal Arcade in Cardiff.
I was expecting wooden cladding and grandeur with chandeliers as it’ was touted as a Viennese Coffee House.
But it was modern and light which was a bit disappointing as the mrs had talked about coffee houses in Austria (as her mother is Austrian) and I was expecting the works with Kaffee und Kuchen.
But never-mind what it looks like.. it was lunch we went for and the open sandwiches were very impressive – I thought a bit pricey.
but when it arrived they were massive & they were very filling and I left stuffed but happy.
I went for the Tyrol (the sandwichs are named after Austrian Towns/Areas) As the family who own Wally’s – came to the UK from Austria just before the Second World War.
– Roast Chicken Breast and Chorizo with Shaved Manchego Cheese and peppers – it was served on sourdough bread and with a brilliant potato salad with crushed pistachios which added so much .
to be honest it tasted fantastic – with black olives and rocket with a garlic mayonaaise – highly recommended and a filling lunch.
MrsUW had the Baden – which had pears and German dark smoked ham on seeded bread – she did not share, but said it tasted very good.
I was expecting more cakes (which we did not partake)but they are open for breakfast, so if you are in arcades pay it a visit.
