Gorgeous little cafe, love the decor here. Food is lovely and home cooked. My daughter says their hot chocolate is the best she ever tasted.

“-- Tea Room is a Nice Name for a Top Quality Food House --”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Second time at Lena's and it was even better than before. Two soups served with good bread. It may not sound like much but when you get quality like this it is worth writing about.

The soup was not just a soup it was a quality eating experience - not something I would say often about soup served in Ireland- most of it is from a packet or tin and then called 'home made' because it is heated up in the kitchen. This is nothing of the sort. This is top quality and made by someone who knows how to make real soup.

The bread? Just as good.

Well, just pop in and order both then come back here and make your own comments. I'll bet it says the same.

“mmm brownies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Just popped in for a cup of tea & cake, it's a really lovely spot, I loved all the mis-matched plates & cups. The best brownies I've ever tasted & very friendly staff. Well done.
