The tea rooms are a fairly recent addition to Cardiff and are in the refurbished West Lodge in Bute park, next to Cardiff Castle. David the owner blogged about the refurbishment and opening of this new business over on I Want to Bake Free.
Cardiff is rather pretty isn't it?
I've been to the tea rooms a handful of times before so I knew I would be in for a treat. You get freshly baked scones (a choice of fruit or plain) a selection of sandwiches (brie and chutney are my favourites) a pot of tea and a choice of delicious cakes.
I opted for the raspberry and coconut cake which was a wise choice but the pecan topped one looked equally as lovely so I may have to pop back and get some cake to take away. All the cakes and bread are baked on site unlike a lot of coffee shops in Cardiff that buy theirs in.
I wanted to dress like a lady for the occasion so ditched my jersey dresses and converse in favour of this polka dot number and some mental shoes.
Shoes: Shellys c/o Spartoo
Alex has these shoes in Black and I had been lusting after them for aaages so I tore open the box on the day they arrived and wore them straight away. I may have to get the black ones too. I want to wear these to work, the pub and just about everywhere but they aren't that practical.
I really fancy some cake now, anyone want to take me to Pettigrew Tea Rooms this afternoon?
