In between exploring the Pembrokeshire coast path, lounging on the beach, visiting the Cathedral and everything else you’ll get up to in St Davids, there is no better way to take a break than watching the world go by with a fantastic cup of coffee. Here are our picks for the best places for coffee in and around St Davids.
Perched at the top of the hill that leads down the the Cathedral, this cafe and shop serves lovely coffee alongside scrumptious cakes and light lunches. Sit on the terrace and watch the hustle and bustle of the city centre and take in the majestic view of the Cathedral valley.
Really Wild Emporium are in a magnificent building on the high street, refurbished beautifully to create a restaurant and cafe on the ground floor and a shop above. Serving all things wild in terms of cakes, lunches and evening meals using foraged ingredients, as well as fantastic Italian coffee.
Tucked away at Porthclais Harbour is the little but great Porthclais Kiosk. Head here for yummy ice cream, homemade cakes and, of course, coffee. Our favourite is their affogato with local vanilla ice cream – a perfect stop-off during a coast path walk!
Attached to the Tourist Information Centre at the top of town, Pilgrims Cafe not only serves great coffee, but also a funky food menu often combining local ingredients with Asian influences. It’s a great place for a relaxed lunch or evening takeaway, or just a coffee in the peaceful courtyard!
The Mill’s breakfasts are renowned for being among the best in Pembrokeshire, and there’s nothing better than a fry up here with coffee in hand. Bliss!
A coffee spot unlike any other on this list. Unsunghero is a surf and skate shop on the high street, and as well as being the go-to guys for wetsuits, surfboards and more, they also really know their coffee! There’s a small bar at the front of the shop where you can watch the world go by while sipping a perfect flat white.
Mamgu Welshcakes is famous for, you guessed it, their homemade Welshcakes in all sorts of flavours! Head to their cafe in lower Solva and have a great time pick and mixing those incredible flavours, washed down with great coffee.
Further afield in Porthgain is The Shed Bistro. Famous for their fish and chips and other incredible fresh seafood dishes, there are also beautiful cakes, desserts and coffees on the go. Our favourite way to spend an afternoon is to walk from Abereiddy to Porthgain, and end the walk with a slice of cake and a cappucino on the harbour wall from The Shed.
