Nice seating area out side to enjoy the sun shine. Good amount of seating inside with clean good area and facilities. Food was to a good standard and reasonably priced with a good selection to choose from. We enjoyed our lunch there, would defiantly go back

My Son and I were in Porthcawl on a sunny, but cold April 17 Sunday, so we visited the Pier Cafe and had the Pier Breakfast each. As usual it was fantastic! There is a blonde girl here now that is a ringer for the girl that works for Eric Pollard in Emmerdale! It's about time Andrea had some competition!

Have eaten here a few times on very visits to Porthcawl, yet today it was raining and we had our pug, not a problem, we were allowed to sit in the pool room to eat once again a lovely breakfast. More places in this area should follow suit in allowing well behaved dogs.

I recently called in with Client who lives in London. We both had the mini pier breakfast. He stated it was the best he'd ever had, and stated there's nowhere in the London area as good as the Pier Cafe! He said Andrea complimented it well!! Finally, he stated when we meet in Porthcawl again, he stated he'd try one... More

Someone has started this venue under the Pier Hotel but it's really a stand alone cafe so is in the wrong place, (comments on 'cleanliness' / 'rooms' etc. will be largely irrelevant if you're not staying here). Gave this a try as someone has been putting lots of 5-Star reviews on here, (someone who has, presumably, never had a really... More

As I stated in my last review, when my Son and I were in the area again, I treated him to the Pier Breakfast. I have the mini pier as I find the big breakfast is too much for a mid forty year old! He couldn't believe the size and quality of the meal! He phoned me the next day... More
