Popped in here today and thought it was a lovely cafe. What struck me first was the homely and cosy atmosphere of the whole place. Don't get me wrong, I love a cool chic modern cafe but every now and then it is refreshing to walk into a cafe where feelings of warmth and comfort come to mind. I only... More

We stopped for lunch at Poppies and were glad we did. We had salads and sandwiches, all of which were delicious and good value. Service was friendly and efficient. The cakes looked very tempting too!

Having wandered around the food market in the People's Park and salivating over a lot of the food there, we discovered that between my wife and I, we had a sum total of €5 cash between us... Not enough for one, let alone two of us and a hungry four year old... We decided to have a walk up the... More

It is an okayish place, but not excellent. Their pies and lunch menu is very nice, the service is good, you don't have to wait long to be served. breakfast is average, though. Pancakes were too oily, I actually disliked them. The full breakfast was average. Scones were nice. Coffee average. The good thing is their pies. very nice selection... More

Dear Rozbell, Many thanks for the review, all I can say is you are damned if you do and damned if you dont!
