“Awful!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

After visiting this cafe, and choosing the all day breakfast, I disagree. The sausage was reheated, the fried bread dry and the remainder greasy. Would have been nice to have had it freshly cooked instead of the warmed up appearance. We were surprised at the speed of service as the order only took about five minutes to arrive. The egg was freshly fried, but the remainder warmed through.
I also thought improvements could be made surrounding the condiments. We were asked if we would like sauces, and the waitress brought us just one sachet each, along with one small butter pack for the toast? It would have been nice to have a pot with a selection of sauces for us to help ourself. A good establishment would also offer branded sauces not cheap versions.
A nicely presented cafe, but food not up to standard.

“Excellent cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

Have called here many times over last few years and still as good as the first. The cakes are delicious, as are the breakfasts plus you are served by friendly and helpful staff.

“Great cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

My husband and I visit the Cegin Alban quite regular during the summertime as we holiday in Mid Wales a lot. This cafe is excellent. The coffee is lovely and everything is cooked to a very high standard. Excellent breakfast and cooked lunches. Sunday lunch is great too with all fresh vegetables. Such a friendly atmosphere and a warm welcome always.

“Awesome breakfast”

Salty, well cooked bacon, dreamy toast & virtually oil free delicately cooked fried egg & milky coffee. Set up for the day. An excellent cafe. Highly recommended.

“Coffee and Cake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

We stopped at Abareoron on our way to Tenby for the week and visited cegin alba for coffee and cake. I can highly recommend the luxury hot chocolate and cream scones. There were 5 of us and we were served quickly with table service and they serve meals as well. Very busy and seems very popular - lovely!
