We stumbled across this place by chance. We were looking for a cheap place to get breakfast and couldn't be happier to see The Cottage charges just €3.50 for a English breakfast. Service was prompt and polite. Delicious also, with Danish bacon and freshly squeezed orange juice included. Would definitely make a second trip.
