Outdoor seating of cafe in Swansea Marina

Enjoy a well-deserved break from shopping at one of Swansea’s many cafés, or if you’re a regular visitor to the city centre, why not discover somewhere new to try with family or friends?

You’ll find national coffee houses such as Costa Coffee dotted throughout the city centre, you’ll also find quirkier chains such as Coffee 1 which has a cosy atmosphere for meeting friends or the tranquil Waterstones Café, a place to indulge in good coffee and a good book.

Swansea Market is also home to many cafés, Country Kitchen and The Lunchbox serve both hot drinks and hot lunches, whilst Café Janet in the centre is the perfect place to stop for a cuppa and watch the world go by.
