Terrible food and no selection, service takes forever and i never enjoyed it. Waitress was extremely rude and spilt milkshake all over me and did not even apologise! Disgrace!

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Use to wonder what all the fuss was about then decide to give it a go and was totally hooked after just one visit!

Very relaxed casual atmosphere, great variety of fillings and sauces will leave your taste buds dancing and begging for more :)

Only puzzling thing is that they don't do wholemeal/granary bagels but don't let that stop you.

“Good food, service & atmosphere! Best coffee in Armagh. But...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

A regular visitor. A few comments though as to why it's a 4 & not a 5 in some categories. Love both outlets but
1) does not attempt to cater for kids in any way therefore putting off many busy parents. No plain bread (kids can be fussy). No high chairs or even anything strapped to a seat. Few child friendly food choices (although my kids see no issue with the cookies every time)

2) the younger customer take over, sitting randomly often just chatting not eating. I know everyone is a customer but some curious crowd management would work wonders

Other than that its great. Fresh food, unique tastes and nice touches like chilled glasses. It's the simple things ....

“Excellent Sandwiches and Desserts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

My husband and I stopped in for an afternoon break. They were out of bacon but the waitress made a great recommendation for an alternative sandwich....WOW...the food if fabulous. We sat near the dessert case and decided to try one. The carrot cake was absolutely mouth watering. Can't go wrong if you like ecclectic food and atmosphere. A++++

“A real find for a lunchtime tasty snack.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

I just came across this place while taxing the car in Armagh, it looked busy and I asked somebody who was leaving 'how was the food?' Excellent was their response so my mind was made up. They were right, it really was a lovely surprise. I had a chicken club sourdough bap which was very tasty, the kids had a ham and cheese melt. Quite reasonable and I will most definitely return.
