My favourite Cardiff hangout...
A few images taken from the website show the pretty interiors and the entrance of the bar; the window is also used as an art wall, with a new painting adorned every so often.
A unique quality of Milgi's would be the gazebo tent in the garden, the tent is beautifully lit up with fairy lights and lamps in the evenings and offers a chilled out vibe for drinking or a quick bite to eat; although I would be wary sitting in the tent now its getting cooler!
I have yet to try the food here since I am not keen on too much vegetarian cuisine, being Chinese and all (big meat eaters). Although I love their selection of drinks, from cocktails to hot chocolates, Milgis offer a wide selection of different and unsual concoctions such as 'iced rose & chocolate milk with a hint of rose petal' 'lavender lemonade' and 'star anise tea'.
Here is an image of the hot chocolates I had with my friend, very indulgent but during a rainy, dull Sunday afternoon it was the perfect accompaniment!
I guess the thing I love about their drinks is that there is thought that goes into every cup made, even the hot chocolates were themed towards the flavour e.g. my hot chocolate orange had a slice of orange peel placed amongst the masses of cream! And my friend's coconut flavour had shavings of the fruit on top.
So if you ever visit Cardiff I would definitley recommend this little bar/cafe as a hang out! Go on a Monday night and you can even get your creative juices flowing by joining in the art club. Find out more about Milgis from their website here or their Facebook page.
Until next time,
