Since we discovered Francos a few years ago we never go anywhere else when we're shopping in Swansea. It has the predictable cafe menu of egg and chips etc, but also daily specials and also good cheap traditional plates of pasta. It is almost always busy but service is very quick and friendly with the sound of Italian jollity from the kitchen end. Many of the customers are greeted by name when they enter the cafe, even if they don't know you, you're still welcomed and shown to a table.

Over the last two years or so, Franco's has become one of the regular haunts when taking Mother for Breakfast, Brunch or Lunch whilst doing the shopping in Swansea City centre. If you're looking for a good fry-up you've come to the right place. It's more than that, though, the menu is enormous for the physical size of the place and then there's the Specials Board too. Mother's favourite is the Minced Beef & Onion Pie and it has to be consumed whenever it's on the board.
They do a fine Caffe Latte too, however, only the one size glass so, when thirsty I settle for a big mug of tea. Service is brisk and efficient and, when Franco himself is there, regimented and directed. When the boss man's not there, it's a bit more laid back and relaxed.
On very busy periods there can be a wait for a table, but it's usually worth waiting for.
