Located in a grade 2 listed building that was originally the docks grain store, though it had many other uses including a fish market, an office furniture showrooms and even a store for the spring bulbs in the municipal gardens before the derelict building was refurbished.
The front of the café overlooks the award winning Sail Bridge and weather permitting tables go on either side of the building to make the most of the sunrise over the docks and the sunset over the bridge. If the weather fails us we have use of the arcade so even if you have your dog with you, you can sit undercover and be assured of the same service as inside the café.
Our interior is furnished with a mixture of seating, high and low tables and integral jewellery and giftware, we have used a modern but mellow colour scheme. We have done our best to enhance the elements of this sturdy building that played such an important part in Swansea’s heritage. The girders that hold the building together, the lovely mellow brickwork and half valued ceilings are all proudly enhanced.
Each dish is made especially for you at the time of your order. Our daytime menu provides an excellent choice of staple dishes from sandwiches, omelettes, salads and jacket potatoes with your choice of filling(s) to daily Specials, like pastas, soups and sandwiches on ciabatta, served with TwoCann Coleslaw and crisps.
We are very proud of our coffee not just for its presentation but because of our association with Ferraris based in Ogmore Vale where our Fair-trade beans are toasted. Latte is undoubtedly our trademark drink with the shot being served separately to allow you the flexibility to make your perfect drink. All our coffees are served with our mini Welsh Cakes (which are made every day and sold in little bags at the weekends). We have many other hot and cold drinks on offer all made with the same attention to detail.
We have sourced our wines from helpful local suppliers; keeping your requests in mind we feel we have a good spread of white, rosé and sparkling options to tempt you. Not to mention Welsh bottled beers, ciders and fruit juices too.
A member of our team will seat you at the most appropriate table, leave menus with you and return to take your order, because of this a comfortable feel is achieved, even when we are busy. People who do have to hurry back to work always say they feel too relaxed to go back and what a lovely atmosphere the place has.
We have a 14 strong team to allow us to prepare all our food freshly and to give you the waitered service you enjoy. Some of our team are still with us from day one.
