I've just had the best muesli served with poached fruit and marvelous fresh yoghurt. Great coffee, delightful environment and such friendly, efficient staff. I was so busy eating it I forgot to take a photo.....sorry

This is one of our go to places for breakfast and lunch. Food is always great and the service second to none. Just such a chill spot overlooking the local street towards Great Oyster Bay.

Excellent coffee and bacon and egg panini. Very pleasant and airy art café. Great service as well. Clean place, unlike some of the greasy venues in the rural areas.

We arrived in Swansea looking for a place to have lunch and discovered this delightful cafe/art gallery. It was very spacious, covid friendly and we found a lovely corner seated area. The food was excellent. I tried the curry and my husband enjoyed the best...vegan burger he had ever eaten. We took away with us some pastries and cake which were delicious and home made. Service was excellent and very friendly. Thank you.More

lovely artworks in this gallery cafe, pity the staff were grumpy stressed, when ordering 2 coffees with a half sugar in each, angry owner said "one then!" (they put the sugar in) .. errr no half a sugar is a half a sugar when paying...$5 for a coffee.. when locals are your only customers, be kind to them!More

Had a Chicken Panini which had homemade pesto on it & my partner had the homemade roast vegetable soup. Food was delicious & the price point was very reasonable. Service was relatively fast and the cafe got busy as we were eating. Swansea being a...gorgeous seaside town, would definitely visit again.More

Coffee shop in the main area. Cakes slices and "rolled balls" to choose from. Had a lovely carrot cake and coffee here. Nice surroundings with attached art gallery and items to purchase in the shop.
