So often we have gone to a beach cafe and found ourselves disappointed by our experience, but at The Junction at the mumbles beach this is certainly not the case.
Firstly its location is properly on the beach with fabulous open outdoor spaces that are tailored for both children and adults. There are areas for eating and playing.
Then the interior has been cleverly designed to enhance the building's period architectural features with a more modern take on the beach theme. The opportunity for local artists to sell their works is an inspired idea as there were some stunning seascape paintings hanging on the walls when we last visited. It feels as though a lot of thought and effort has gone into using as many natural materials within the interior as possible which leaves you thinking that the food is also given that same level of attention. We loved the fact that every detail had been so carefully considered; the subtle beach themed interior,the varied outdoor spaces, the fresh delicious menu and the enthusiastic staff, the art for sale.The Junction was everything that we felt a beach cafe should be.

The first day of a family camping holiday in Wales we stopped by at the Junction.
What a wonderful place to get into te welsh vibes. Beautiful view and plenty space for the kids to run around after a long drive. Although we enjoyed the sun at an outdoor table, the inside seemed just as welcoming. Very friendly people. Food was excellent. One of those places to remember to stop again.

We are a family of six and we visited The Mumbles. We stumbled upon The Junction and we were so glad we did. The food was fantastic and the service was very good. They were very accommodating and flexible as we didn't have a booking. Taking four kids under the age of 13 to any restaurant is always a risk but the menu was so varied that we managed to find something that each of them liked - and more to the point ate - and more the point enjoyed!

I have no hesitation in recommending The Junction for the quality of its food and service and for value for money.

We had a fantastic evening at the Junction in November celebrating my 70th birthday. All 65 guests left feeling very happy, after excellent food, a lovely celebratory atmosphere, and very friendly and helpful service. Nothing was too much trouble, including setting up a projector for a slide show. Some of the guests liked especially the 'quirky' nature of the Junction. We'll be back!

A group of us 11 ladies enjoyed an excellent lunch 'upstairs' at The Junction. Currently offering a £13.95 2 course Christmas Special. Pre order from menu. Choice of 6 starters 8 mains and option to add a dessert. Restaurant quality with copious amounts of side vegetables - fab roast potatoes and roasted root veg. Plates beautifully hot (very important!) and presentation excellent. Small wine list, very reasonably priced. (Phone ahead if you want prosecco!)

Daily specials also available if you are just dropping by.

It's a lovely atmosphere - their other spot 'Ty Junction' in Mumbles village is equally pleasurable. Some interesting present ideas for home/souvenirs.
