Very relaxed environment and a great display of local art, the coffee is outstanding and I have yet to taste a better cup in Swansea. Staff clearly have a passion for the business and their products, they are very friendly and happy to accommodate in any way possible. If your eating, the baguettes are great and plenty of choice.

Great place to stop for lunch, Great food and amazing coffee. we need more of these places in the city centre.

whilst visiting my daughter who is studying at Swansea University we stopped by here for coffee and a snack. The filter coffee was excellent. We both decided to have a bowl of soup. There were 3 choices for the "soup of the day" and we opted for the chicken chowder that was served piping hot. It was delicious as was the hot bread that was served with it.

It is an excellent little place and highly recommended.

Cove is my favourite cafe in Swansea. It's conveniently located in the city centre, just opposite Cosmo. I absolutely love its interior, which is very quirky and modern and doesn't look like any other cafe in Swansea. They also have a gallery in the basement and you can even purchase paintings! Coffee is of excellent quality and so is the food. They do a selection of baguettes, jacket potatoes, soups, Welsh cawl and toasts. Cove also offers cakes and cupcakes for those who fancy something sweet. I find it very cheap in comparison with other places in Swansea - baguettes are only £3.30 each! Very tasty and filling! Staff is very friendly and helpful! They have free wifi connection, so if you need to do some work on the laptop, Cove is the place to go to! They always have various offers available, for example, 30% off takeaway drinks and once you've had your first drink, you only pay £1 for next drinks (during your visit). Highly recommended!
