Lovely!

Great cafe, sandwiches, soups and very friendly staff. It's a great place for brunch or lunch in a great location at Waterford. Will go back there if in the area again!

Lovely coffee shop. I visited there on the 1st of April. Lovely service at the counter, struggling with bags so a lovely girl brought the tray across to the seating area. Got a tasty toasted sandwich and coffee. Lovely free chocolate was served with the coffee. Only suggestion would be maybe a plain sandwich selection for the calorie conscious. All... More

I love coffee and chocolate so this was a great find for me. I am a fan of takeaway cups in the cafe in case I want to take some with me if I am on the go. The free Lily O'Brien's sweet is a lovely touch. I love the way they vary between visits. Nice and cosy with cushions... More

This is a very convenient stop for coffee and a sandwich or cake. but please tell me why the food is so expensive. A sandwich or wrap is €5! The cakes look good, but again cost far too much. Please reduce the costs slightly as I love good coffee, the shop isn't just for the tourists who don't mind spending... More

What a wonderful find. This café was just closing up as we arrived, but the owner welcomed us warmly and took the time to have a good chat when he found out we were from Australia. The hot chocolate and the coffee was excellent, as was the conversation.

Mum and me called in here for a hot chocolate after some shopping on our holiday in Waterford expecting it to be the best hot chocolate we've ever had. I can't tell you how bad the hot chocolate drink was. We expected it to at least come in a tall drinking glass but it came in a takeaway cup, even... More
