KINGS ROAD YARD
183A Kings Rd, Cardiff CF11 9DF
Our Kings Rd site is our original shop, and opened in 2015. Tucked down an alleyway
in Pontcanna, Lufkin is a hidden gem. It's a small, slow coffee shop that takes
time to make customers superb cups of coffee using beans roasted at the
local roastery in Grangetown.
Mon - Fri 9:30-15:30
Sat - Sun 9:30 - 16:30
We serve our coffee in hand-thrown ceramics by resident potter Micki Schloessingk. Based in the Gower, Micki’s ceramics are wood fire salt glazed and she uses a variety of slips that fire to different finishes - so each mug is unique. Micki’s studio is called Bridge Pottery and you can read more about her process, here.
We work with local bakers, makers & artists to bring Lufkin to life. Our beautiful bright lemon was created by local artist Lucy Dickson who also painted the mural you'll spot on the wall of the shop. Her mediums comprise of digital drawing, painting, murals and printed goods.
We are fortunate to be part of the Kings Rd Yard community which includes Lazy Leek (vegan street food), Alex Gooch (artisan vegan bakery), Pipes Beer (craft microbrewery) and the Red Door artist studios. The yard also hosts Saturday morning farmers markets, vintage fairs and plant markets.
All of us have experienced those times in life, where we stop, and really take in the moment. Enjoying coffee has that quality, allowing us to step aside from our everyday comings and goings and take a moment. At Lufkin Coffee we’re interesting in that moment, working to make it as sweet as possible for you, whether you’re enjoying by yourself or with friends.
