“Service, price and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

I would rate The Coffee Shop on the three criteria in the title. The service was quite fast once the order was placed at the counter, actually getting the order taken was not so fast, though we were there at a very busy time just before Christmas. The food was very good, fresh, well flavoured and with lots of variety available. Their whole grain Irish soda bread is excellent. The coffee was a cut above the average. Prices were very reasonable. In a nutshell, a good place in Wicklow Town to get a quick bite of good fare in a pleasant atmosphere.

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Absolutely fab. LOVE The Coffee Shop. Superb food, delicious deserts, and yummy coffee/hot chocolate.

Atmosphere is very relaxed. Staff very friendly and always willing to accommodate where they can.

Not one person leaves the coffee shop without the staff & Kieran thanking them and saying goodbye. It shows they care about their customers.

Could not fault anything.

Will definitely be back

Arly

“Lovely cafe and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

Have coffee and a treat here regularly and it's always lovely. Service is prompt and friendly and prices are reasonable but they don't take laser card so it can be pain to have cash every time. Small complaint as over all this is a great cafe.

“Just wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

The only reason we go to Ireland each year is to eat here. If they close, that's it

In fact we are due to stay in a lighthouse for a week nearby in July 2013 for no other reason than to eat here - every day

“Not a good experience at all.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I have gone inot the Coffee Shop on and off over the years and have never felt it was anything special. I think the food is lovely and obviouskly home prepared. I do not find the staff friendly and I do not like the way you must pay for your food at the counter before you take a seat.

This appears very mistrusting of thier customers but also highlights the inadequate table service that is provided. In general I tend to avoid this place and only go in if a friend suggests it. there a other coffee shops in the town which provided superior service, friendlier staff and better value.
