Lovely lunch

The coffee shop is a regular pit stop for me when I'm meeting friends. Their soups are delicious and all food is freshly homemade. Their deserts are extremely good, I'd recommend the millionaires shortbread.

This is the best cafe in Wicklow town for a coffee & snack. Good range of sandwiches, cakes etc. Ideal for a quick bite while perusing Wicklow. Very central on the Main Square (it's actually a triangle) in the town. Very comfortable & clean. One thing to note they don't take credit cards.

I was doing a bit of shopping in Wicklow Town with my 2 daughters and we decided to go into the coffee shop for a coffees and hot chocolate. The staff were lovely and the coffees and scone were delicious. I'll be definitely dropping back next time I'm in the town. Thanks

35 euro for a breakfast, soup , two pancakes and a cappuccino. Service was chaotic. Cappuccino was ordered as large but only small arrived. I ordered tea and it never came. Soup was Luke warm and served without bread. When I requested bread I got a heal! The people beside us sent back one meal because there was a large... More

This was a horrendous experience. The place was very quiet this morning and I sat in the front half of the shop. All three windows at the front were open, it was raining, very windy and the ceiling fan on. Given that it was the Saturday before Christmas i.e.winter! it was not warm or cosy; just what you look for... More

good lunch spot with a nice atmosphere but a bit overpriced for what it is. Coffee is good but couldn't put my finger on why I wouldn't rant about it.

We visited again last weekend and had another lovely lunch, between a family of four we had soup, rolls & salads all of which were freshly made. The tomato & lentil soup was great and the rolls had plenty of fillings. Great selection of salads & treats all of which looked very tasty. We will keep returning.

A beautiful place to sit down and have some good healthy food or coffee. It is right in the centre of Wicklow town.

Really wanted to like this place!! The menu seems to have all the new and delicious gourmet salads and sandwiches that "artisan" (are in) fashion but unfortunately the food was not up to scratch. The BLT was fine. The bacon was over done and over heated. When the lady serving us realised that she'd left us short,she shouted "why didn't... More
