“A beautiful location, a warm welcome and a lovingly homemade sweet treat; these are just some of the things waiting for you at MamGu Welshcakes. Is there a teatime treat more synonymous with Wales than a traditionally baked Welshcake? We think not and we’re delighted to welcome MamGu Welshcakes and their delicious variations on traditional recipes to Discover Delicious. Croeso!”  

Based in the stunning seaside village of Solva, Pembrokeshire you will find our quaint little café, MamGu Welshcakes. Step inside and you’re guaranteed a warm Welsh welcome, a comfy chair and of course a handmade, toasty Welshcake. We adore the delicious little cakes that have been a rich part of Welsh history for hundreds of years.  Ours are homemade with love, and sold hot off the griddle, the way they’re meant to be.

Our range consists of about 14 different flavours, from the traditional to the slightly alternative – we just love to experiment with flavours and travel around South Wales with our trusted little Welshcake Wagon, spreading the love wherever we go!

Mamgu (pronounced Mam-gee) according to the urban dictionary has the following definition:

1.Welsh word for grandmother, historically used in West Wales.

2. A word to describe the most ballin’ thing to ever grace this planet.

For us, this is the perfect fit for both our alternative Welshcake flavours and our beautiful, traditional, freshly baked Welshcakes! Proper Mamgu like…

Our Story

It all began in 2016 with two friends whose love for coastal culture and cake transcended into a fully fledged business after being inspired by a pancake house whilst on a trip to Holland. Just like the Dutch, The Welsh celebrate their patriotism with a burst of modern vibrancy and the two friends wondered how they could transform this passion into a welsh cake…

So, 700 + welsh cakes later the duo cracked it! The perfect welsh cake recipe was discovered and the introduction of alternative flavours began. 

From their first ever Christmas market armed with just a gazebo and one small griddle, then opening what has become a much loved cafe in Solva Harbour, a bakery in Croesgoch and then a second one in the UK’s smallest city in St Davids. It’s safe to say that MamGu Welshcakes have gone from strength to strength!

Sustainability is at the heart of MamGu’s. For us it’s not just about cake, it’s about local people and their environment. We are proud to be employing over fifteen full time bakers and coffee makers who live locally to our welsh-cakeries.
