“Lovely Cafe - Picnic style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

This little cafe/restaurant is a really cute find and worth the walk to find. its in picnic style so it has a poppy field painted on the wall, the tables are wooden and some tables even have picnic blankets to place over your knee. the idea is to choose any drink and 3 items (10euros pp) from their specials board or their main menu. the items come in picnic size. you can have a cheaper option of 2 items and a drink or you can just have one item for 3euros. the food is amazing lots of time and care taken in making the food. you have to try the hot chocolate its to die for!!! i had the nicest mini quiche i've ever had here and i will try and receate it. very nice treat.

“Best place for your lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

After walking around all day it was finally nice to grab some light lunch. This place was a great find. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The atmosphere was great, based around a picnic setting, the tables also had a nice touch adding blankets. The cafe was on the small side but this didn't bother us.

The menu was simple. You can choose three small items for your list. Or another option is to buy tea and choose some cakes to have with it. The prices are fine for what it is. The food was amazing and it fills you up for the rest of the day. Also free WiFi !!!

If your looking for a cute place for lunch with friends or a loved one than this is the place. You must have the hot chocolate.

“Lovely Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Paid €9.50 for the lunch menu which consists of small soups, quiches, sandwiches, cakes and a none alcoholic drink.

I had a courgette and ham quiche, a hummus and veg mini sandwich, a blackberry and almond cake and a hot chocolate. Everything was very tasty and the hot chocolate was the star of the show being a make it yourself with a chocolate lolly and whipped cream for on the top.

The service was friendly and the atmosphere was nice being frequented by locals and tourists alike.

There was more than enough for a woman however, bear in mind these are small morsels and may not satisfy a larger appetite.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

I originally found this place on trip advisor and came here with my boyfriend on our first day here abd what a great decision! Everything is pretty small so you can mix and match a few things for a great price. So fresh and light.... just truely enjoyable. The mint tea was so simple but amazing!
