    Scrumptious breakfast, and we shared a stack of cremepogs too. Not because we were still hungry but because they sounded delicious and we really wanted to try them. We were right. Blummin’ lovely they were. Going again next week then we’ll be anxiously awaiting them opening in St David’s.

    Overall, was lovely, service friendly. Food was let down a tad. I had the Eggs Benedict on the Cheese & Leek Welshcakes. The eggs were overcooked and served on a cold plate with hollandaise on the plate so rather unpleasant to eat cold. Silly things and can be easily rectified. No check as to whether our meals were good either. It wasnt busy so not really any reason to not be as expected.

    Lovely interior homely and cosy. Just opened first thing in morning so i was only one in cafe. Food came swiftly. Lots on menu to choose from. Tasty and I bought a variety of welshcakes to take home. Lots of different flavours to try. Friendly staff, quite chatty to each other behind scenes so bit noisy I guess 🤣 but happy vibe.

    We always visit Mamgus every time we are in Solva but would recommend booking as very popular. We ordered breakfast for four and service was quick. Superb quality, I had the veggie breakfast, beautiful and the savoury Welsh cake was delicious.

    The food, as usual, was outstanding with an interesting and varied menu that caters for all ages and tastes. It is our favourite place year round and is an eagerly anticipated destination for all of our family when they visit. The family tradition is breakfast at MamGu’s but this has grown to lunch and coffee stops too and no visit is complete without a fabulous box of Welshcakes to go! I highly recommend this superb cafe.

    This place is good but the service was very slow, the food was ok but admittedly the Welsh cakes were amazing but everything else was lacking unfortunately. I appreciate they were super busy but some attention to us would have been nice. I would say buy the Welsh cakes as takeaway & enjoy on the beach.

    100% will be back to visit whenever I'm in the area. I was lucky enough to book so I wasn't disappointed by them not having space for me. Lovely spot for me to read while I waited for my food, which was delicious. Breakfast that comes with cheese and leek welshcakes... winner!! The girls were all lovely, and of course purchased some goodies to takeaway too!

    Not bad. Lovely breakfast. A slight air of complacency about the place. Weird to have to order from the counter having reserved! Takeaway cinnamon Welsh Cakes were a tad dry, didn't remind me of grandma's classics! When in Solva you must support this young business. Dog friendly too which is great for us.

    First visit to MamGu during a New Year break to Pembrokeshire, lovely location in Solva. Nice and cosy and lovely menu, difficult to choose what to have! Decided on soup which was hot and came with a hot cob. 2 of the people I was with had Welsh Rarebit which looked equally as good! The choice of Welsh cakes it amazing! Had a mince pie flavour and also a Bakewell tart one and when warmed they are gorgeous! Despite being busy the staff were friendly and efficient. We were glad to have prebooked a table! Would definitely return!
