Great breakfast

Really good breakfast. keep your eyes peeled though as it is hard to find and we were there for 3 days and only found it by chance on the last day. We drove past it about 5 times over the weekend and never noticed it even though there is a sign outside.

Fast service is always a plus should you be on a coach trip where stops need to be under 40 minutes to keep to schedule. We enjoyed seafood chowder, envying thos who opted for Irish Sausage (Bangers) and mash or succulent salmon.

What a little gem of a restaurant and a nice surprise in the near wilderness of Doolin. The food was scrumptious though a little on the expensive side. Our server was a lovely American lady who made us feel right at home with her friendly and helpful demeanour.

We went in there for lunch one cold rainy day and had the best seafood pot pie. The cafe was nice and warm, the staff was very interested in us and where we were from. A very good place to stop

We were planning on going somewhere else, but they were closed this evening, so we stopped here instead. And it was a great choice! Good beer selection. Yummy food. Great atmosphere and good service.
