Help and Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have disabled access?
Entry into the Delicatessen is on the ground floor and is accessible to all. We do however have a section of the shop which requires climbing one step to reach. If you are having difficulties accessing this section of the shop our staff are available to help you by bringing the products you require to you.
Our Kaffeehaus is situated on the first floor and is only accessible via a full stairway. Our premises are situated in the oldest Victorian Arcade in Cardiff and as such it is a Listed Building and we are prohibited from installing a lift to the first floor. We regret therefore that we are unable to provide disabled access to the Kaffeehaus.
Our customer toilet is located on the ground floor and is wheelchair and disabled friendly.
Do you sell gift vouchers?
Hard copy gift vouchers in £5 and £10 denominations are available to purchase in person from the Delicatessen or via our website. These may only be redeemed in-store.
Gift vouchers are also available for our Afternoon Tea for 2 persons.
No change is given should the value of the goods purchased be less than the value of the gift voucher being redeemed.
Do you have any other branches?
Wally's Delicatessen & Kaffeehaus in Royal Arcade is our only branch. We have taken the decision to focus on this one location to maximise the quality of our offering and to maintain the link with our heritage.
How do I find you?
For your convenience we have included a map on our Contact Us page.
You will not be able to drive all the way to our shop as Cardiff City Centre is a pedestrianised shopping area. However the directions will get you into Cardiff where you will find numerous car parks!
