Not sure the coffee is the best in town, I often feel it could be a little hotter, perhaps the cups are on the cold side when the coffee is dispensed. Also, at times it can be a little bit dirty with tables being left uncleaned for a while. As other people have pointed out there is not a wide choice of food, or even drinks. It can at times be cramped too.That's the bad stuff out of the way. I would overall recommend this place as the atmosphere is fantastic and relaxing, being able to read a book, newspaper at your leisure. There is always an eclectic crowd in, from suits to bohemian. The ceiling is decorated with what looks like wallpaper from the 1970's, but it just adds to the place.
I suppose the acid test is that it is always busy, so if the first points do not put you off, go search it out, it is worth giving a go. I recommended it to a friend that was having evening classes in McCurtain Street and she could not believe she had not been informed of this place beforehand. Almost annoyed!
