On a day trip to Tenby, we stumbled across The Stowaway – a tiny independent coffee shop in Tenby Harbour, set in a grade 2 listed arch. The coffee shop went deep into the Harbour Wall, providing much welcome shade from the summer heat, serving a selection of sandwiches, cakes, icecream and drinks.
We loved the interior – decorated with fairy lights and church pew-style seating. As it was such a lovely day, we decided to skip getting coffees and go straight for icecreams – supplied by Mary’s Farmhouse, a local Welsh business – which we then took to the beach. The Stowaway had a range of icecreams, sorbets and specials which I was immediately drawn to. I noticed they had chilli chocolate flavour icecream, which I had tried on a previous visit, so this time I opted for a scoop of Celtic Crunch whilst he chose the damson sorbet.
The Celtic Crunch was made from a creamy butterscotch icecream swirled with bits of chocolate and caramelised hazelnut pieces. I loved my icecream but when I tasted his sorbet I wished I had chosen that instead! He had grown up making and eating damson jam and so this flavour brought back great memories for him. It was lovely and refreshing, perfect for a hot summer’s day such as this one.
