Lots of stalls here takes a while to get round. The freshly cooked Welsh cakes are a must have. People are friendly and welcoming and is in the heart of shopping centre.

Fabulous bacon, ham, welsh butter. We order from London and collect when visiting Swansea. Karl is wonderfully helpful and friendly. Always a queue there, but he still takes the time to chat and talk you through his produce. The quality is exceptional.
