I had their specialty burger and a glass of milkshake. The burger was okay. It wasn't that bad nor it was not something I will be looking for again. I enjoyed my milkshake though. What made me give this place four stars was the good service they provide and the excellent location they have. It is one of those places... More

A nice place to have coffee and cake and on a nice day, it's nice to sit in the back garden area. It can get a bit busy and then it can be noisy and service speed is dependent on how busy they are. Nice coffee that you can also take away. Good for lunch and snacks.

We parked the car in the big car park on Newgale beach. Stopped here for a drink while waiting for the Puffin bus to St Davids which will stop outside if you flag it down. Staff were helpful and welcoming. Nice cuppa!

Stop here for a quick sandwich while walking the coastal path. Dog friendly and people friendly. Basic menu with the food being presented well. Lots of places offer free dog biscuits which would be a nice touch. Anyway with the great views and beach right on the doorstep, it's a nice stop off

Since my last review in 2016 there has been no improvement in the food except the coffee, which now is really good.This is in a prime location and visitors will expect better quality.The sitting area is very humid as there aren't any windows to open.This cafe has the potential be really great with some general improvements.

Perfect stop for gorgeous hot chocolates and a coffee on the way back after a nice walk in the cold. Even had little heart biscuits to mark the date. Nice to meet the owners having been popping in here for years when visiting this gorgeous area. We'll be back!

Newsurf's Sands Cafe is on the same main road between Haverfordwest and St Davids as the surf shop with beautiful views of the pebble bank and sea from your table. We serve a range of food including sandwhiches, toasties, paninies, burgers, soups and salads as well as a number of homemade cakes and biscuits. Ideal for relaxing after a day enjoying the sun at Newgale or perhaps to pick up an energy boost after an activity at Newsurf. We serve a selection of specialty "Tea Pig" Teas and strive to use the best ingredients for our coffes and meals. We hope to see you soon!
