About
A lovely old cart house built in traditional stone converted to a clean bright modern cafe whilst retaining traditional features and colour scheme. Sit amid the hustle and bustle inside or relax in beautiful surroundings in the outside patio area. Relax , eat lunch or a delicious homemade cake , sip a coffee and then take a stroll to beautiful Penbryn beach, which is reached via a private road or a fabulous woodland walk. After , why not pop in for the best ice cream in Wales ! Dog Friendly

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good food but on the expensive side for what it was. The service was very dissapointing. We had been advised prior to the start of our walk that they were open until 17.00. When we got there with at least half an hour to spare...there was little in the way of food and extremely slow service even though there were free staff in the kitchen. Very eager to shut up shop! Started closing up whilst we still sat there.More

Supper Club night, 3 course meal that was delicious. Supper club is advertised on Facebook and there are only about 20 places available and they go fast, which is testament to the quality of the meal. We really enjoyed the evening and can't wait for...the next one.More

Lovely cream tea in a super spot near to Penbryn beach. We took our dog; the cafe provides fresh water for dogs and they even sell ice cream specially for dogs. We also treated ourselves to ice cream. It was a shame that the food...and drink were packaged in cardboard cups and boxes; not very sustainable. We assumed they were busy and so had decided it would be quicker.More

We were going to the beach and just popped in for drinks. Coffees for three of us and a can of orange juice for the fourth one. Service was a bit slow but we weren’t in a hurry and sat outside chatting. When the coffees...arrived, they were gorgeous and so wonderfully creamy which made the wait worthwhile. We didn’t eat, as we’d had a filling breakfast, but the menu is all you’d want for a light lunch with homemade soup, salad, baguettes, quiches and the most mouthwatering array of homemade cakes and pastries. I’m still not sure how I resisted one of the scones!! All in all, it’s a lovely stop-off point on the way to or from the beach and, with outdoor seating, it’s doggy friendly too.More

We had an amazing experience at the Plwmp Tart! We had delicious hot drinks and snacks, but above all the customer service was exemplary. We lost our car keys and the staff could not have been more kind or helpful, not only helping in the...search but providing shelter and care for my son and dog even providing a towel to dry him and offering food and drink whilst we searched the beach for the keys. It restored our faith in humanity. We are TRULY grateful. Your customer service went above and beyond. I am happy to say we found the keys and are now on our way home. With huge thanks forever, the The Alder family.More

The Plwmp Tart was recommended to us by a friend and it didn’t disappoint. We had one of their sumptuous sausage rolls and a cream tea, both of which were delightful. Don’t miss out because it’s worth the trip and the beach is lovely too.
