Tenby is a popular town with lots of places to stop for lunch. But with so much choice, there’s also a lot of variability. Our favourites are:

Stowaway Coffee Co.

Tucked into a tiny arch on the walk down to Harbour Beach, this little coffee shop is easy to miss but well worth seeking out. Excellent coffee, delicious crab sandwiches (ask about the recipe’s origins) and a good selection of locally made ice cream with some amazing flavours (we had chilli chocolate ice cream and damson sorbet on a recent visit). We also love the beautiful wood-lined nook at the back of the arch – really cosy & welcoming, whether you’re taking a respite from rainy weather or baking sun.

Caffe Vista

A few doors down from the top of Crackwell Street (the one way street leading up from the harbour) Caffe Vista has amazing views overlooking North Beach towards Saundersfoot from their small terrace and from the table in the bay window at the back. Great coffee and a range of delicious homemade Greek/Mediterranean foods – the stews are very warming on a cool day.


A trip to Tenby wouldn’t be complete without some fish & chips. Our favourite is Fecci’s on Lower Frog Street. The Fecci family are well established in Tenby and different branches own different chips shops, so choose the right one. Sadly, their famous ice cream parlour has now closed: no longer will you be able to buy all the wonderful, inventive sundaes they used to make with their own ice cream.
