Best breakfast in Swansea for value, taste, selection and speed of service. Even when it's packed to the rafters (which it usually is on weekends) you never have to wait long. They've got it spot on

Ive been a few times and always had a great breakfast, this time we had lunch, it was really nice and very tasty - and very fast ! Friendly and efficient staff too. Must say that the meals were great but desserts including Cheesecake were yuk...stick to mains, it is their forte.

We used to love this place, however when we visited recently and ordered our usual breakfasts the food was disappointing. The toast was stone cold and soggy, not to mention undercooked (i noticed that they line up all the 'done' toasts on the side of the grill so maybe this is why), the chips tasted old and stale and the...

I have always been impressed by the efficiency of staff and food on offer however, on the most recent occasion it was just not quite as it usually is...i am not sure why, it wasn't particularly busy, but the food was not overly hot, toast was under done, eggs...

If you like a good fry up and a mug of tea this is the place to go. Great service and value for money!. The gourmet burgers are amazing! Parking can be a pain at times but worth it.
