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!

Halpins cafe is an oasis in a desert or maybe a dessert because they rock too. Sunday morning with good company and a breakfast to die for. Halpins Cafe staff always have smile and a warm greeting which you recognise as family, something which is so sadly lacking nowadays in more pretentious restaurants with half the quality of Halpins.....

I love this little place, the owner couldn't have done more for us when we were there, I was on a "diet" once and he was telling me the calories in everything to keep me on track! The food is always good and tastes homemade, which is my favourite type of food. Keep up the good work guys!
