Caffi Sïo

… a new Culture Café in Cardiff Bay brought to you by Chapter.

Regulars to Chapter will know that we are as famous for our café as we are for our culture.  ‘Sïo’ is the Welsh word for ‘buzzing like a bee’ and we think it is a fitting name for our artisan café in a contemporary, creative and energetic location.


Caffi Sïo is one of a few independently-owned dining experiences amongst all the chain restaurants on offer in Cardiff Bay. It is a place where you can socialise, work and create in a comfortable, relaxing and inclusive environment whilst enjoying our homemade menu of quality local produce, the finest coffee and food to satisfy all palates. Culture vultures will be able to enjoy some of Chapter’s most iconic brunch and lunch dishes and alongside the a-la-carte offerings there will be a ‘quick lunch’ menu, perfect for those working in the Bay and on a tight lunch-time schedule.


Experience a flavour of our unique artistic programme with regular small scale live performances and enjoy a ‘side order of culture’ with our stock of leading publications in the arts including photography, architecture, contemporary art and more.
