Excellent coffee... food... not great the day I ate there. Staff are friendly if a bit chatty... with each other. Was in a bit of a rush the day I called but staff seemed to have plenty to talk about with each other so service was a tad slow... perhaps my rush contributed to this... next time I'll take my...

Lovely coffee house, highly recommended. Rear outdoor seating. Warm friendly atmosphere. Namir hosts a knitting group and art classes too. Would recommend you try the breakfast, great value. Love their salads and pain is too.

This is a great place for a great meal at a very reasonable price. The staff are cool .. I think that is down to Namir, who is the proprietor. It has a lovely outside eating area.

Lovely inviting restaurant in Church st. Friendly efficient staff, Angela and Namir are on top of their game. Varied menu, full irish, stir frys, pasta dishes, home made breads and scones with gluten free options. Very reasonable prices. Highly recommend Scribes
