So adorable and delicious. We had "traditional Irish breakfast" and it was great, and the coffee was ground right then and there!

This little place has a very good ambiance, great coffee, and if the sun's out, the garden and the terrace are very nice. The staff kindly served us even though we have popped in just before closing. I have no information about the food though, we had only coffee, which was good.

Simply the best service and prepared food in the world. We looked at the menu and wished to tweak a dish slightly. No hassle at all the lady of the house replied with a huge West of ireland smile :) we had a delicious breakfast in a heavenly atmosphere. Kieran & paula.

Stopped here for breakfast before boarding the Happy Hooker to Inis Meain. Had some wonderful smoked salmon on a bagel with at Latte. Not the Irish breakfast I was expecting - even better!

Having been here in Doolin for a family wedding, my wife and I stopped by this highly recommended café and we didn't want to leave. An old cottage converted into a beautiful quaint café that brings you back years and years. Ably run at the front by the very charming and quirky Martha, the welcome was warm and friendly and...

The Doolin Cafe certainly had the best coffee; the best I had in my travels in the UK and Ireland at least. The food was delicious, with real value-for-money quantities. The staff were excellent, despite being close to being overwhelmed as a one-woman show. Nothing but platitudes and superlatives for this delightful find.

Stopped by this lovely café purely by accident on a trip along the west coast. Great service and delicious, fresh food.

We traveled all over Ireland for our Honeymoon & The Doolin Cafe by far the best breakfast we had. The food, coffee & service were incredible. We highly recommend stopping by on your way to the Cliffs of Moher!
