We had the 'smaller' breakfast. The sausage & bacon were of the best quality and beautifully cooked. Eggs were great and the relish was wonderful. The waitress was friendly & efficient. Good value all round, tnx folks!

Was grateful for this delicious, healthy spot right next to our hostel in Doolin. The staff are kind; the space is light, fresh, and artistic; and the food is creative, abundant, and satisfying. Thanks for a wonderful, nourishing pause during our adventure!

Last Sunday morning we came across this little gem of a restaurant and had two large breakfasts here. The portions were huge but cooked just right with plenty of brown toast and coffee, well presented in a friendly atmosphere, our waitress was very good and dealt with her full dining room very well indeed not forgetting anyone or anything.

The chai latte was incredible, the bacon was plentiful and crisp on the edges just perfectly, the sausage was great and let me tell you the balsamic tomatoes were amazing and i do NOT eat tomatoes! Soooo yummy. The chef was nice enough to even give us some soup before the lunch menu was supposed to... More

Delicious! Best meal so far in Ireland! Fresh ingredients and depth of flavor in every bite set in a modern, warm and friendly atmosphere. Worth the drive to this corner of the island.

Amazing food. Dinners and desserts are just perfect. They serve amazing Thai Green Chicken Curry and all dishes are available as half portions for starters or full for mains. Their breakfast is incredible too. Either full or veggie.

You will love the staff's passion for healthy, organic, vegetarian food. But the Meat dishes are great as well. Try the black pudding (local produce), veggie breakfast with haloumi cheese or chili non carne. The drinks are all well balanced to go with the food, desserts wonderful... But especially the no-stress welcome and homeliness.

I've been here many times and every time it's absolutely brilliant - fresh delicious food, warm homely atmosphere and great service. Today I had the pomegranate and black pudding salad which looked beautiful and tasted even better, followed by gingerbread with orange syrup - rich and flavoursome. All the menus are excellent and creative so whatever time of day it... More

After braving the cycle across the mountain from liscannor to doolin, we deserved a decent feed and where better to get it than the doolin cafe. Usually I go for the (incomparable) veggie breakfast but today I had the chilli con carne (as distinct from the chilli non carne) which was served with delicious home made chunky chips. The black...
