I was sad to see that D-licious had closed down, not necessarily because it was particularly great, but because it was the only place in the city, that I know of, that was doing Welsh dishes on a regular basis. It’s always sad to lose diversity of provision.

In its place, LK (subtitled Coffee and More…) has taken over. I visited after they’d been open for just around two months.

The interior remains as it was in the previous incarnation. It’s simple and functional, with sit-in space for around ten people.

The menu has been given a refresh, with good looking lunch deals and regularly changing hot specials. I was visiting at breakfast, so opted for a bacon and black pudding roll, which seems to have become my weapon of choice, of late. The friendly counter man set about preparing this.

I added an espresso, which was made with Segafredo beans. It’s not a favourite with me, but the counter man said that it had found favour with recent tourist trade, so it’s perhaps a good fit for this location.

I wandered on with my roll in hand, eating as I strolled. It proved to be good, with the morning roll particularly fresh. The black pudding was of good quality, too. I was pleased with it.

So overall, LK is doing solidly good work. The location has had some turnover, of late, so it will have a battle with other nearby shops, such as Freshcut and No 63 that are ploughing much the same furrow, to win custom. I wish it good luck in that endeavour.
