No 'fuss ' eating

This is a 'no nonsense' cafe offering good food at affordable prices. Great selection for vegetarians, I would recommend it.

As we were exploring the charming city of Kenmare, we stopped for a coffee and a hot chocolate (with marshmallows!) and enjoyed it on the sidewalk terrace. Friendly and fast service and good quality drinks made for a lovely pit-stop during our travels.

Scones were good, but not best I have had in Ireland.They could have been a tough sweeter. Fresh hot coffee was really nice!

Wonderful little cafe with a range of truly fresh local produce. Downside gets really busy ( why wouldn't it) toilets up steep stairs with no baby change and a no go zone if disabled. If you can manage for a short while, soup and brad here is a must.

Wonderful food here. Open all day. Big portions and freshly cooked. Quiches and Toasted sandwiches with lovely salads. Just like your Mum might put in front of you. Puddings lovely too. Staff cannot do enough for you. Quick and delightful.

After a wander around Kenmare, this looked busy which is usually a good sign, and my instinct did not let me down. Relatively small menu, and self service, but apart from that, all excellent. Really tasty food, I had the chicken coupe (chicken, stuffing, and egg mayo sandwich) which was full to bursting with flavoursome filling, and my wife had... More

Had a delicious baked potato with a well balanced filling. Food seems to have integrity - ie ingredients one would recognise (NOT industrial ingredients and ready-made sauces).

It is a small place and self service but the quality and value makes it worth while .Just down the street you can get a salad half the size twice the price.There are tasty take home items available .
