Best cafe in Waterford

I am a regular visitor to this cafe and it's very easy to see why. The staff are extremely friendly and courteous, the food is exquisite and no day would be the same without a cup of their coffee to see me through the afternoon.

Although this may not look like your typical café, or lunch venue from the outside, it is even more surprising inside. It is an open plan area with college canteen style tables and seating as it is part of the Waterford Institute of Technology Campus, I think. Don't expect fine dining but the food is good and the coffe is... More

The best coffee I've ever had, and if you have a WIT student card they do a discount, a drink and a sandwich for €5. Great value, great service and great food! If you do come across it, pop in even just for coffee and cake - because the cake isn't to be missed either.

Everyone talks a lot about here,and have been in before, but always just thought it was ok. Its not really a restaurant, more of a self service cafe. Was here the other week for lunch, as I needed to meet a friend who was home from Australia, so I thought it might be a nice place to go as its... More

Hello Toby, Unfortunately you are reporting a bad experience at The Granary Cafe. A litany of textbook incidents occurred that left me concerned but also slightly confused in so far as I can't recognise my own Cafe in the context of your reported experiences.

Had lunch here and it was very tasty and very easy. It is cafeteria style, but there is a selection of healthy options. Staff were helpful and there is wifi available.

I’m based in Dublin but I would easily make a trip from Dublin to Waterford for my breakfast at the Granary. In fact I’m quite jealous of anyone that gets to pop in whenever they like!! The breakfast is honestly one of the best I’ve had. The quality of the food, the attention to detail and the friendly staff make... More

When visiting Waterford, we always include The Granary in our plans. The cafe is conveniently located both to the quayside as well as the city centre, with plenty of parking nearby. When we visited recently, it was unseasonally warm and sunny so many diners went dining al-fresco on the pedestrianised area. Inside, there is ample seating with some sofas as... More

Hello Rowing Guy, I've always loved the word "Ooozing" when used to describe a luscious cream cake or some delectable culinary delight, but when it's used to describe the whole joyful experience of dining in our cafe I love it even more. Thank you. Peter F Owner. More

Spacious and friendly restaurant. Visited here on numerous occasions, as it is the perfect place for a healthy family/ friends/ couples meals. large range of salads, my favourite is quinoa. Also a large range of teas and coffees. Staff could not be more pleasant.
