Good value

Great coffee, and lovely staff in a quirky haphazard set up which works for the cafe, but the food is average.

The cafe is very plain and the interior simple. The young service is very friendly but could be more attentive. The menu card is clear and you get typical Irish food in good portions. Recommended good for a lunch or coffee and cake.

We called in today as a group of 5, late into the evening and close to closing time. The place was very quiet but soon became alive with a buzzing warm atmosphere. The menu was very simple and the staff were warm and welcoming with that simple Irish charm and smile that we all enjoy. The food order was quickly... More

Most welcoming staff on a rainy evening. Very friendly, good service. As we were leaving, when we mentioned that we would like to hear some music, the waitress went outside to the neighbouring pub to find out if there was music that night. Very kind of her. Nice atmosphere at this café.
