Worth a visit to see the garden. And the food is great! We only had lemonade this time but it was perfect for a sunny afternoon. It would be good to remove the signs - too many rules - giving an unwelcoming impression. They're not necessary.

This is a great place for coffee and cakes. It was really busy but the service was very good so I didn't have to wait long. They have beautiful cakes and tarts so this is ideal for a break. There are lovely gardens to the front and back and there is parking opposite.

Very impressed with this cute little place! Our hostess at our B&B in Doolin recommended that we stop here for a pasty and coffee/tea and we are so glad that we did. We actually had breakfast about an hour or so before our stop but when we walked in and saw all the cakes and pies and tarts we just... More

We had read so much about this place, sadly it fell far short of expectations. We just popped in for a snack had two sandwiches and mackerel pate. One sandwich consisted of a slice of average ham relish and a slice of commercial cheese, not.even a local cheese in what only be described as a finger bun, the other sandwich... More

We were very impressed with the gardens, although the weather meant we could not spend time outdoors. The lunches were good, and the display of cakes mouthwatering!

I visited on a midweek afternoon with a friend. A quaint setting with a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The homemade lemonades and desserts are delicious! Food is slightly over priced but overall a very enjoyable and pleasant experience.

Had Sunday lunch at the Tea Rooms in Ballyvaughan. Had the lentil in filo pastry tart plus 2 salads at a cost €12.00. I got one slice and the two salads consisted of a spoonful of couscous and a few lettuce leaves. While it tasted nice I thought it very bad value for money. My friend had the fish pie,... More
