Your vibrant and bubbly personality, and love for interacting with people will certainly stand you in good stead.


As a bistro bar and lounge, we attract customers around the clock, from 7.30am until late, with our freshly prepared food, local drinks, and events. Cakes & Ale aims to offer something different in the popular tourist destination of Mumbles, with our selection of locally produced and sourced food and drink just one of the many reasons why shoppers, office and retail workers, and visitors dine and drink with us.
Cakes & Ale is synonymous with quality, offering carefully sourced breads, cheeses, meat, grazing boards, fish, vegetables, salads, coffee, wines, beers and ciders. From beautiful breakfasts, brunches, great coffee and light lunches to excellent wines, dinners and evening entertainment, Cakes & Ale will not only provide a place to eat but an experience.
