Navigating through Covid-19

What can we say, 2020 has been bizarre.

We closed for a few months to support the NHS and key workers across Wales in their fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

We reopened on the 25th of May and welcomed many new and old friends and customers back to Mizzi, with new rules in place to make sure all our customers and staff feel safe and comfortable in our family cafe.

It has been a whirlwind and a time filled with anxiety, especially as a local family-run business in the hospitality sector. But we are grateful for each and every one of you for supporting us through these difficult times, your custom has literally saved us!

For those who haven’t been back in Mizzi since lockdown or for those heading back to offices in Cardiff Bay in the near future, we wanted to let you know what we are doing to ensure your visit to Mizzi is as comfortable and safe as it can be.

Hand sanitiser is available on entry and exit to the cafe ensuring all hands are clean prior to touching any items within the cafe itself. Our tables (both inside and outside) are now available and safe to use, all social distancing measures are in tact if you do choose to eat in. As per our usual cleaning schedule, all tables will be thoroughly sanitised between uses. Again as per our usual protocol, all our staff members are regularly washing their hands in the correct manner according to the Food Standards Agency. In correlation with this, we were recently awarded another 5 out of 5 Food Standards Agency Hygiene Rating highlighting our commitment to healthy and hygienic hospitality protocol.

Our floors and walls are marked with social distancing guidelines of 2 metres to ensure no one forgets the role they have to play to ensure the virus does not spread within our premises. Please ensure if you are coming with small children that you sanitise their hands as we know they like to touch lots of surfaces! Everyone has the option of ordering via phone to ensure contactless orders and contactless payment remains an option for everyone.

We hope you all feel comfortable continuing to visit Mizzi and in the future, when you return to work or feel more comfortable to leave your homes.

Stay safe

Eisteddfod Caerdydd 2018 – Dewch i mewn am goffi!

The National Eisteddfod has arrived in Cardiff blessing our capital with everything amazing and special about Wales!

We are brushing up on our Welsh and preparing some special treats for the celebrations this week so make sure you pop in and grab a coffee and a welsh cake!

As Welsh language learners we have picked a few of our favourite, and simple, Welsh phrases which we are hoping to use more often:

Croeso – Welcome

Beth hoffech chi ei gael i’w yfed? – What would you like to drink?

Dewch i mewn am goffi – Come in for a coffee!

Nid yw’n Cymraeg yn wych, ond ni’n dysgu! – Our Welsh isn’t great, but we’re learning!

If you are in a rush for lunch during the festival, pick up one of our delicious pack lunches from only £5 which includes a fresh baguette or sandwich and three snacks of your choice!

If you need pack lunches for you and the rest of your family/friends/colleagues/students give us a call on 02921 329949 and we will rustle something delicious up for you.

Since the 27th of May, the Volvo Ocean Race fleet have been moored up at Cardiff Bay. Team Brunel managed to fend off Team AkzoNobel and win the transatlantic leg as well as getting a weekly round of lunches from Mizzi! We have been very busy this week with lots of orders from many different teams participating in the Volvo Ocean Race.

Race Background

For those who don’t know, the Volvo Ocean Race fleet set off from Alicante, Spain on a race around the world and for the first time they have stopped in Cardiff. The festival site for the racers is set up in the famous Cardiff Bay Barrage and for more information you can check out the website here.

Thank You
