Have been in Halpins so many times and can't think of anything other than positive things to say. Love the place, staff brilliant and even when it is really busy you get a smile and talked too... If I owned a restaurant I would copy everything and everyone in Halpins

We stopped here for sandwiches for lunch and everyone really enjoyed the food. It wax really busy and they were turning tables quickly. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Best of all the coffee was really good. We had quiche, club sandwich and BLT and a couple of simple ham sandwiches for the little ones. Agree with other reviews... More

Visit here over the bank holiday weekend and was really delighted I did. We had a fantastic lunch here and even though the place was thronged with tourists and local we were seated and served really quickly. The menu was very extensive for a cafe and the specials on the board really bring this place into restaurant status. The level... More

We were in Wicklow looking for a late breakfast. We got a good coffee and filling 'breakfast in a panini' here. Food was appetizing with decent portions, price was lower compared to the 4-5 main street eateries in Wicklow, and the staff were efficient (particularly the English bloke who was helpful and friendly). The menu had a lot of variety... More

We first visited in March 2013 and had a lovely experience there, enjoyed our soup and a sandwich deal and a very nice chat with the owner. We've been there a few times since and the food and staff - very nice. I would definitely recommend, try the soup and a sandwich, have a coffee. Great place for lunch!

Visited recently on a Saturday afternoon, enjoyed a cup of freshly brewed tea and a slice of Carrot cake, wonderful aroma of coffee makes the place very inviting. Staff very friendly and courteous, and the place is very popular with local people, lunch menu served all day, no evening meals.

I felt very at home in this cafe even though I'm pretty sure I was the only non-local there. The staff have a wonderful relationship with their customers and they've got good coffee and tasty food! I will definitely be back!
