Our family have been visiting Solva for the last 15 years and there is nowhere better than sitting on the quayside with a nice cup of coffee! The views this year have been improved by adding a glass balcony which makes this place even better. Whenever we have visited we have found the service to be fast, friendly and the... More

Visited with family. Children loved milkshakes. Sandwiches (crab, cheese and bacon) all tried and were fine...but the almond cake was awesome. My wife also enjoyed the bara brith. However, if you eat nothing else here, try the almond cake!

Called to Solva to go crabbing, and caught it when they had their annual raft race on. So the cafe was exceptionally busy with large queues constantly. I queued for ages to get drinks & ice creams & TWICE a local person, who was known to the staff member jumped the queue to be served... On the second occasion I... More

A lovely spot to enjoy a light lunch or coffee whilst enjoying a beautiful view. Explore the waterline with kids or simply relax on the balcony with a beverage. Classic Pembrokeshire as I was raised in and want to preserve.

The views looking out over the harbour are priceless - it's well worth the walk along the harbour to this quay side cafe with balcony seating. Spend a quiet hour watching the children crabbing and the fishing boats and sailing boats coming in and out. The cafe offers a limited range of hot food but for coffee and cake or... More

Super find at the end of the harbor. We went crabbing and they supplied the line and bait at reasonable prices. As we purchased the crabbing gear we noticed the delicious food. They had homemade cakes with gluten free options and delicious hot chocolate. We ate outside and found each chair had a blanket for added comfort with a great... More

This little restaurant, located at the end of the Solva harbor, on the first floor, a short walk from the parking area, was perfect - it has the view, it has a completely local feel, and the food was fantastic. Two of us tried the special - the Solva fresh crab on bloomer multi grain bread - absolutely fantastic .... More

Ideal spot catching the sun on this delightful estuary. The balcony has been refurbished with sate of the art polished crome balustrades and glass. Each chair has a crotchet fed blanket for cool days! Most pleasant service and we had an excellent glass of wine and crab sandwich. Such a delight
