Birchgrove (Welsh: [Llwynfedw] Error: {{Lang}}: text has italic markup (help)) is a district of the city of Cardiff stretching between Llanishen and the Gabalfa interchange, along the A469 Caerphilly road.

It centres on a crossroads dominated by the Birchgrove pub which also lies between Heath and Whitchurch. Heath Park and University Hospital of Wales adjoin.

Birchgrove Station on the Coryton Line is served by Transport for Wales

It differentiates from the ward of Heath in which it lies, by being a busy, hustle and bustle type of area, with rows of small shops and eateries and for the most part being dominated by Terraced housing.

The area is served by Birchgrove railway station on the Coryton Line, and by the Capital City Green bus service.
