Had to wait over 2 hours for food when it was meant to have been between 40-1hr I phoned after an hour and a half and was told it would be leaving in 10 minuets and still took over 30 mins. I had asked to make changes on one of the breakfasts and the bacon was taken off but was... More

The only place I was told to visit when I'm Swansea. The reputation sells itself! The vibe is great and really well organised. The food is more than plentiful and really tasty. So much choice and enough to feed the 5,000. We couldn't beat the beast.

Love the simplicity of this place. Want cafe food at cafe prices - Egg and Chips, Bacon and chips, full english breakfast - Then look no further always happy when we visit usually on Saturday morning and and the chips are a thing of beauty.

Want to have a nice breakfast or a Monster-Burger, try the Uplands Diner. It's some kind of institution for the locals and students. Sometimes busy, the wait is not too long. Meals are fast served and the quality is rather good.

For the price you pay, in terms of quantity you're getting a good deal. The quality however is poor and even the service was just cringe. No professionalism (and I'm not a snob) when the food was brought over to me, just put me off eating it. Stick to Sam's cafe in town a million times better than this place.

I've been here many times, and everytime i say i wont go back again, yet i end up getting dragged back here after a night out by my friends. That's the thing, this place is just the 'go to' place now, but honestly, the food is terrible quality. The suasages are the cheapest you could possibly find, the bacon is... More

Recently visited with my daughter. She had sausage, egg and chips. I had the Welsh breakfast. This consisted of cockles and laverbread, bacon, egg and fried bread. Got to say it was excellent. Well done, Uplands Diner. Still an Uplands icon!
