Wake up and smell the coffee

The Best Coffee in Pembrokeshire

You made it! After months of planning you’ve finally enjoyed your first nights sleep in Pembrokeshire.

Waking up to the birds singing and the smell of sea salt on the air your first thoughts are “I...need...coffee...NOW!”

Fear not. Here’s a list of the best coffee spots in Pembrokeshire, guaranteed to quench your coffee thirst.

St Davids

St Davids cafes excel themselves when it comes to coffee. At the Oriel y Parc café, within the National Park Visitor Centre, their 100% Arabica beans are sourced from Caffe la Messicana in Piacenza and served with local Dragon milk. For a consistently good cuppa try the Sound Café on the High Street, or enjoy the space that’s been created for coffee contemplation at The Refectory, down in the cathedral grounds.

Chances are you will get a good coffee wherever you go in St Davids. Enjoy! 

Fishguard

There are some great venues in Fishguard to while away a few hours with a coffee. The Gourmet Pig on West Street is a must not only for the coffee but for the scrumptious food as it's also a deli and wine store. Just up the same street is Peppers. The cafe is surrounded by the West Wales Art Centre so you can browse the fine art on display whilst enjoying your coffee. The cafe is also a great music venue.

Ffwrn - Welsh for oven - can be found on Main Street, Fishguard. Housed inside St Marys Church Hall, Ffwrn is a haven not only for great coffee but for pastries and huge croissants to die for (Beatrice the owner is French) Don't forget to take some of their bread home too.

Haverfordwest

Steph Harries on Facebook has suggested Cafe Rio on Quay Street. Cafe Rio not only sell great coffee but fabulous Spanish cuisine including tapas. 

The George's on Market Street also gets a mention from Pamela Groves-Nation. Pamela said 'The George's serves delicious coffee of all varieties and sources it from a local company.'

Narberth

You are going to be spoilt for choice in Narberth, as most cafes have upped their game in the coffee department. Places of choice are Ultracomida on the High Street – they have a really nice space to hang out in, if you can tear yourself away from the alluring Spanish delicatessen on your way in. For the ultimate mocha try a shot in their thick Spanish drinking chocolate - roll on winter!
 
Another good Narberth spot worth heading to is Plum Vanilla on St James Street. This is a hugely popular café, with great organic food to accompany your caffeine. Vanilla Plum offer Allaways organic coffee, ground to order, served with local organic milk

Pembroke

Folks have been enjoying coffee at the Cornstore Café for years and time and time again they always turn out a great drink. The cakes are outrageous and the lunch menu is always tasty. In the summer you can sit outside, overlooking the castle, and there’s a lovely walk around the town if you feel the need to walk off your energy boost.

Food at Williams on Main Street, Pembroke is the place to sample locally roasted coffee and loose tea if that's your drink of choice. A cosy log burner and squidgy sofas as well as simple fresh locally sourced food make Williams a must.

Both Frank Whittle and Rhys Jordan on Facebook have suggested Feel Good Inc on the Upper Lamphey Road, Pembroke. Rhys said 'Bespoke, hand made and roasted unique blend'

Milford Haven

Clare Williams on Facebook has suggested Foam right on the waterside at Milford Marina. Sit back, sip your coffee and admire the view. Try some of their amazing pancakes or nibble some excellent tapas. Heaven.

Tenby 

Tenby has lots of coffee options, but a real corker is Caffe Vista on Crackwell Street. This little spot has a breath-taking view over the harbour from their balcony seats and is always buzzing with people, no matter what time of year. As popular with locals as it is tourists you’ll be glad you got a seat and even happier when you get your coffee.

Stephen Brice on Facebook said 'Caffe Vista was a real treat. Sipping coffee on their balcony was a great way to end a day of exploring around Tenby.'
