Great menu & friendly staff

Went in for a coffee but when I saw the menu, I had to have lunch! The guy that works there (or maybe he owns it, he seems to take a lot of pride in the place) was exceptionally nice. The menu was varied & impressive. Loved my crab & prawn open sandwich. Looking forward to returning.

My mother and I visited Berfranks for a cuppa & scone. We were both pleasantly surprised, having visited many coffee shops in Waterford City, in search of a quite shop, that serves good coffee & scones! I think we have found our new meeting spot! Excellent variety of cakes, coffees, teas & everything else you would expect from a coffee... More

To start with good part, the coffee here is excellent, possibly the best in Waterford. The scones are not up to the same standard. I cannot understand they don't improve them. They are the plainest fruit scones I have ever had. Please make them richer,( more butter and eggs to the mixture ) and it would make it the perfect... More

Cozy places with nice quiet music. If you're tourist you can feel there real Irish atmosphere and If you don't like touristic places it's perfect for you! you will not meet there any tourists ;)

Staying in Waterford overnight on room only basis we ventured out to find somewhere for breakfast and happened upon Berfranks - what a great find. Sat in the window watching the world go, enjoying an excellent breakfast with great mugs of coffee, served by friendly staff - and very good value. Looking around it seemed that this is a place...

Just stopped there with my friends on our recent visit to Waterford. It was quite chilly day and after spending half day around the town, we were looking for some place to have a bowl of soup when we found this place. Must say, it was very cozy, warm place (felt like in my grandmas kitchen) with very welcoming staff.... More
