We ate here three times on our recent stay in Doolin. Everything we had was outstanding! We enjoyed delicious soups, brushettas, lemon cake, potato and cheese cakes, and tarts. The staff was very friendly. The day we left they made us sandwiches to go even though sandwiches per say are not on their menu. They even put in two tarts... More

I have been here twice and had two lovely experiences. The breakfast was amazing and the pastries are out of this world. This cafe has a great charm with a homely feel to it. The staff are so friendly and full of local information. There is also a lovely outdoor seating area if you are lucky enough to get a... More

Friendly girl but was waiting ages, when the plate eventually arrived it was burning hot when delivered and absolutely NO warning..nice....I am not one to crimp but it was so hot it burned my hand so I felt it appropriate to say it...

Waffles, bacon, and tea, sweet holy cotton socks. If I could leave it at that I would but review has to be longer. We even brought two 'merican friends and they loved it and proclaimed such with great Americanisims. Great eggs too. Have yet to try a dessert, but I'll be back.

This café has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, the books available to browse whilst you have your coffee was a nice touch. However, the food definitely did not deliver. The vegetable soup was the strangest I've ever tasted, it was way too sweet. It was so terrible I barely even ate it! I also had a pannini, which was OK,... More

Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your dining experience with us at Doolin Café. All our food is made fresh daily on the premises including our sandwiches and fillings. We do find that are soups are not to every ones tastes as we do not use butter or cream to suit a variety of diets but we do use... More

We stopped there as a break and found the two waitresses delightful. The coffee was fresh, dark, and strong--perfect. Toilets were clean and there was a variety of seating arrangements, included by the window, up a step to a different level for more quiet dining, or outside to watch the local traffic go buy on a road that's barely wide...

Ate breakfast here on 2 occasions and everything was terrific. Service, food and coffee! Our group was large, and they were very accommodating when we came in, in ones and twos. Great location beside the Rainbow Hostel.

Spent a week in Doolin and ate breakfast here everyday. Home made baked goods are phenomenal. LOVED the pear almond tart!
