Everything is fantastic here. For a small, homely cafe there is a large variety of dishes, which are consistently great. I have eaten here a lot and can say that without a doubt you will not be disappointed. The management and staff are exceptional and every customer is greated warmlyupon arrival. Try the cheesecake with a double espresso... my favourite.

I have been to Halpin's Bridge Cafe on several occasions. It is a little gem in Wicklow Town. Friendly staff, great home cooked food, always a warm welcome, would highly recommend. Their weekend breakfast is fab. Always lovely to see the proprietor of an establishment so hands on & so welcoming.

Times past, Present, Future, anytime I have visited this Café, whether it's for a quick cup of coffee with a Scone, or a tantalising tasty Lunch, I love the atmosphere there, I love the Service from All the staff, the proprietor makes not just me feel welcome, but literally everyone, well done all, will definitely dine again
