“Over Priced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We stopped in for lunch based on the reputation and big signs saying it had won loads of awards. We left when we saw a simple (two slices of whitebread with a filling) was €10.50 minimum. I was not going to pay €42.00 for 4 sandwiches. The location wasn't even that nice, a bit tacky and old.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

This has to be the best most consistant coffee shop in Kilkee. Everything is always the same high standard and the girls are very helpful
