The most divine hot chocolate I have ever tasted. All drinks come with a small chocolate taster. The staff are friendly and the service is quick, great to grab a go, There is an area indoor and outdoor where you can sit and relax and food available also. I've also had coffee from here before which was lovely.

A cosy little cafe. I feel it is over priced for the size of a coffee/ hot choccy. Hot chocolate is delicious, as it is made out of the Lily O'Briens chocolate. yumm yumm. You also get a Lily O'Briens sweet with the drink. It is disappointing, however, that all drinks come in take away cups. This makes the experience... More

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
