Apple Betty's is a lovely cafe on the square which is right in the centre of Skibbereen. It's a great place to go for a coffee and cake (the Lemon Meringue Pie is amazing!) or a quick lunch (the panini are really tasty). Lovely, friendly staff and good coffee. It is also a great meeting place as it's so central.

Apple Betty's deserves the prize for best breakfast of 2014. I love the scrambled eggs bacon and toast here. I always drop in and have breakfast with my husband and we will continue coming here. Staff always warm and friendly and place is always clean.

we stopped here as we were looking for a quick bite for lunch. The menu was good and the food was good. My son enjoyed the sandwiches that were made to his taste. The coffee and hot chocolate were excellent. The prices were also very reasonable. My son enjoyed the free wifi, something we don't get much of in Australia.

Stopped here on a busy afternoon and enjoyed delicious coffee and cake. The staff were really friendly and they were very busy but still chatted to people. The outside tables are great for people watching.

I like that Apple Betty's Cafe accommodates all diners with delicious food including gluten free and lactose free sandwiches, soups, casseroles and desserts. I like that the wait staff are never grumpy no matter how busy, and I like that they have indoor and outdoor dining and good things to read. The high quality has not altered since I was... More
