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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We were visiting the area and our friend suggested we meet here for breakfast. What a superb decision that was! My partner and our friend had a full Welsh breakfast (no laverbread, sadly) and I had the veggie version. All were seriously good! I would...never have thought of coming to this place for breakfast - but you should! And you've currently got the lovely Jackie Morris exhibition next door to the café too!More

Great Caffè just to go in and chill. Very good Ambience quiet little place to eat and drink. We had a rocky road and hot chocolate and the rocky road was fenominal it was crunchy, chocolaty and chewy soo so good but the hot chocolate...was on another world it was so perfect with such a low price for what we got it's a no-brainer to go there.More

Popped in for a late lunch. Delighted to see cawl on the specials menu. Huge bowl of lamb filled cawl, beautiful bread (baked in house?)and large chunk of cheddar, absolutely delicious. Friendly staff. Great value for money.

Came for breakfast with my partner and our dog. Coffee was very nice. Ordered the small breakfast which was good - however sausage tasted a bit processed and was sad not to see sourdough bread for the toast. My partner ordered avocado on toast with...poached eggs and chilli which was very nice. Also had a look around the visitor centre which was dog friendly too.More

We went for a fantastic full Welsh breakfast and over 3 hours later and I’m still really full. A full plate of freshly cooked, quality ingredients that were truly delicious. As per anywhere, when they get busy you have a small wait but it’s all...cooked fresh so it’s what you expect. We loved every mouthful and not been disappointed once by either the service or the quality of what’s on offer. Truly lovely, warm and welcoming staff, that go the extra mileMore

I regularly visit St Davids with my family and have been coming for many years. This cafe is situated within the tourist information centre and there is also a gift shop and an interesting gallery on site, well worth a visit in its own right....I suspect some seasonal visitors might not realise there is a cafe here as it is slightly further to walk from the town centre/cathedral than some other options, which would be a shame as this is probably the best place for brunch in St Davids. This cafe has its own parking or you can easily walk to it from the main town centre. Last week I came twice for brunch and again for coffee and cake with family members and friends, we were all very happy with our food each time we visited. Consistently well cooked and of high quality. The portion sizes are generous and the meat was good quality. There are vegetarian breakfast/brunch options available as well as options for children. There is outside seating if the weather is good and the cafe is dog friendly with plenty of toilets available in the cafe and outside and space for the kids to run round outside the cafe. I really enjoyed the avocado toast with poached eggs and also the lemon and blackcurrant cake. My partner enjoyed the full Welsh breakfast and kids enjoyed the pancakes. There is a selection of board games available. Can't wait for our next visit!More

Lovely breakfasts! Happy to recommend cooked breakfasts, the avocado/poached egg combo and the gorgeous pancake/bacon/maple syrup stack. This is a great little cafe with really pleasant staff, plenty of room and a great menu to choose from. Park just across the road, load up with...breakfast and then wander into St David's.

Outside seating available, dog friendly, board games to use, excellent coffee and a delicious selection of cakes.

Oh wow!! Being a fussy eater I was a little pensive on first glance at the menu, but the food I went for was simply sensational, and at a very reasonable price too.

Lovely, spacious building with tourist gift shop and info point. The staff were helpful and friendly and went the extra mile to paint a picture for us of some of the things that happen in the area. The Pilgrim Cafe is fantastic. Brilliant vegan options....I had a flatbread wrap followed by an amazing Bakewell tart and my friend had a trad Welsh dish called cawl which the chef had apparently won an award for! We both agreed that the dishes were wholesome and delicious, but also had a subtle extra layer of sophistication which took the food to another level. Highly recommend.More
