We had a really cracking breakfast here this morning and will definitely be back. The customer service was so good, with friendly and engaging staff as well as the great card gimmick at the end for the chance to get your meal for free (which...one of us did). The Big Breakfast was exactly that and proved excellent value for £6.50 with no cheap ingredients and a choice of how the eggs came was a nice change too. This may be our new favourite breakfast place.More

We visited during a busy breakfast service and were met by the owner, who was attentive, welcoming and enthusiastic. Our teas, coffees and breakfasts came quickly and were beautifully presented and of good quality. The home made hash browns were not to our taste, but...it’s good to see the effort being made to do something a bit different. Well worth a visit!!More

Skewen is quite the culinary dark horse. As a small town, out of town it has some nice eateries, big and small. No exception to this rule is Rarebit, an enticing cafe I had a takeaway coffee from recently. Some places just have a magical...secret ingredient which draws you; the decor, the ambience, the feel, call it what you will. So I re-visited determined to try their breakfast. A couple of days later, and an unforced welcome awaits. The breakfast I have not only sets me up for the day, but well, for whatever I have ahead. I chose the bigger breakfast; consisting of two items of each, toast and a coffee to shake the torpor of grey skies beyond. All is cooked to perfection, and enjoyed in comfortable, cosy surroundings. Sauces come in bottles, not in measly unopenable plastic wraps. Perfick. It's clearly a very popular place, and it's not difficult to see why. Get a place like this in London and you'd pay a fortune for it. Fortunately for me and its clientele, it is not. Delicious. And a stand out moment? Well, it has to be the hash brown, unique, almost rosti like and a lesson to chefs in how to make one. I look forward to my return visit, very much.More

Rarebit has quickly become the 'go to' cafe for my husband and I. The food is really great and you always receive a warm welcome from the owners and their friendly staff. The food is home made and always so filling. We often have takeaway...breakfasts (compostable containers!) and really love the Sunday Lunches. Definitely the best carvery that we've ever had! The cafe allows dogs and the staff are always so helpful when we take ours. If you are unsure about what to have - the Vanilla French Toast is to die for and we always take home an Everything Brownie! The Hunter's Chicken and Welsh Rarebit are also firm favourites, but to be honest, we've never had a bad meal!More
