A small garden café ranks to the No.1 café in Cardiff, according to TripAdvisor. What makes this greasy spoon cafe become so popular?
The Elmer’s café locates in a busy street of Cathays, between a charity shop and Domino’s Pizza takeaway. The appearance is not stand out, but customers come and go all the time, full of students from colleges nearby and regulars in that café.
Clifford Jones, the current owner, said he has taken over this café for twelve years and the name comes from his nick name, Elmer.
“We offer quality food, our prices are good prices, we have a report with all of our customers, and we all have good personalities, they help when you get into purpose.” he says.
“It is a friendly café, I mean, we encourage people to share with the table, and it does work because a lot of people now know each other when they come into the café.”
