This is a great dog-friendly cafe that was relaxed and friendly when we visited in September. The Welsh breakfast was really delicious, couldn't fault it, with a nice big pot of tea.

Visited here many years ago and had a wonderful experience, however returned today and was extremely disappointed. Tables dirty, and cake was stale. The cafe decor was plain and in need of a lick of paint, floors and windows dirty. In all looking very run-down...More

This place deserves better reviews! We had a great breakfast of French toast with bacon and maple syrup, which was delicious. Lush hot chocolates too, try the dark hot chocolate! Cafe was welcoming and clean and staff were lovely.

We went for breakfast while staying in Newgale. The breakfast overall was fine, bacon was lovely but sausages were quite poor quality. Thought it was quite pricey too. Service was fine, they were busy and some staff didn’t start until 9am, hence a bit of...More

Newsurf's Sands Cafe is on the same main road between Haverfordwest and St Davids as the surf shop with beautiful views of the pebble bank and sea from your table. We serve a range of food including sandwhiches, toasties, paninies, burgers, soups and salads as well as a number of homemade cakes and biscuits. Ideal for relaxing after a day enjoying the sun at Newgale or perhaps to pick up an energy boost after an activity at Newsurf. We serve a selection of specialty "Tea Pig" Teas and strive to use the best ingredients for our coffes and meals. We hope to see you soon!
