30 word Insider’s Tip:

The Plan has the privilege of being the official stockist of Caffeine Magazine for Wales, so pick up a copy for free with your coffee!


Choose from an ever changing daily selection of Single Origin In-Season coffees for French Press, and ask staff to describe the tasting notes.

The Plan is housed in a beautiful listed building that still oozes and boasts its original features dating as far back as 1896. The large windows wrap around the cafe, and a central balcony from the second floor creates an airy, well lit and ventilated, elegant space.This very unique, full of character and charm, bustling café, is loved by a diverse range of regulars in Cardiff.

Head Barista Trevor Hyam has been the constant force behind the coffee since 2007, making this one of the first places in Wales serving artisan, third wave coffee, leading the way in Cardiff long before the movement developed locally.
