What is The Social Bean?

The Social Bean is a social enterprise coffee shop that serves delicious, healthy food and drink, as well as providing work and experience to disabled people who may otherwise miss out on employment.

We are located in the centre of Swansea, overlooking St Mary's church, the perfect spot for an afternoon pitstop.

All profits from the Social Bean go to Leonard Cheshire Cymru, a charity supporting people of all abilities to live life as freely and independently as they choose throughout Wales.
