Another nice little cafe on the promenade but this one is seeped in history. It used to be the junction house for the old tramline and on the site of the oldest railway in the world.

We've been here quite a few times for coffee and a snack. The coffee is great no matter what version you have. There is a great range of items on the menu but we haven't tried them all. What we have tried we've really enjoyed. The toasted bacon butty and granola are 2 of our favourites. And the shortbread is... More

We went a 50th wedding anniversary party. It was an evening party on a very wet November evening. The buffet was a mixture of hot? And cold dishes. We were among the first to be served and all the hot dishes were Luke warm at best. The flavour was good but the chicken was dry. The venue was cramped for... More

I was walking my dog and it started to rain, so sat outsider under the shelter. Bought a coffee and the staff were so friendly and accommodating. An amazing coffee too. An accidental visit that will be followed up by more. Great coffee, great staff, great view. What more do you need? Bet it's outstanding when the sun is out... More

Historic Mumbles Railway building now transformed in to a cosy cafe/bar. Still quite busy in November - we just had a coffee but the food looked good and all freshly cooked. Quite small inside but romantic atmosphere and quirky "sea products" for sale.

I met up with an old friend for a catch up and 'coffee'. I had the hot chocolate and it was by far the best I have had in a long time with tiny marshmallows, a lot of cream and a really good tasting hot chocolate drink! Not sure about anything else but if you are passing by and you... More

Despite being a fairly regular visitor to The Junction since it opened around 2002, I have been three times in quick succession recently - twice for brunch with family and once for coffee with friends. The breakfasts are great value for the size and are of an excellent quality, the sausages were particularly good and the bacon is always nicely... More

Ate here twice in the last couple of days both times food was excellent. Sandwiches and ploughman's was huge on Friday and kids menu was really good. Today the sun was shining lovely sitting outside. Today we had ham, egg & chips and a burger it was delicious. All ingredients were fresh and the portions were very generous. Staff friendly... More

This is a very busy place as there is a lido there for children with park area and on the beach front as I was on my own with two grandchildren. Didn't want to leave to get a coffee the waiter came to clear tables and could see that I was looking at the queue inside as no service out... More
