Renowned for its veggie friendly food but no stranger to a superbly cooked slab of steak, the Kitchen Table is a quirky and deservedly popular addition to the Mumbles dining scene.
Vegetarians will be in heaven, with imaginative delights as the ‘Vegeree’ (brown rice cooked with spices) and scrambled tofu with ginger at breakfast, and the Heavenly Haloumi and Chickpea burger at lunch. Meat-eaters don’t miss out either; the breakfast bacon is thick and cooked to perfection, the organic lamb burgers are juicy and full of flavour while the steaks on the evening menu keep locals coming back time after time. Almost all the ingredients used are locally sourced from the farms of nearby Gower.
Complement your meal with a great selection of loose-leaf teas, superb coffee or one of the vibrantly coloured and intensely healthy fresh juices. In the evening you can choose from a selection of locally brewed beers or a carefully put-together wine menu.
Much of the Kitchen Table’s charm lies in its shabby-chic décor, with the colourful painted chairs, trinket-lined shelves and walls laden with local art combining to create an ecclectic yet homely atmosphere. Among the art on the walls you will see several plates and ceramics, a nod to the building’s previous incarnation as the famous Mumbles Pottery.
The Kitchen Table’s location opposite the park on Mumbles Road makes it a favourite coffee stop for mums on their morning walks. Stop in as you stroll along the Mumbles promenade and enjoy a cuppa with one of their devilishly tasty cakes. Many of the sweet treats are also gluten free.
The Kitchen Table is open daily from 9.00 – 4.30. On Friday and Saturday evenings it opens its doors from 6pm, and in the summer months it also opens on Thursday evenings. Booking early is advisable, especially in the evenings, though breakfast time at weekends gets very busy too, with locals treating themselves to their favourite healthy dish to start the day.
The café occasionally host local live music acts – ask inside to find out if anything coincides with your visit.
