“A pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

To be quite honest,I stumbled across this cafe !! My wife and I had taken an impromptu 4 day break with 2 friends and were homeward bound when a nature break beckoned for 3 of the party.
I was immediately struck by the cleanliness of the place,as a visit to the toilet is always a good indication of the overall hygiene standards.To cut a long story short....all 4 of us enjoyed our food immensely...we were also struck by the attention to detail of both menu and decor.If you are in Cavan,you could do an awful lot worse than try Cafe Zebra!

“A diamond in the rough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

Beautifully presented wee cafe. Especially loved the food, warm welcome and Audrey Hepburn art on the wall. Everything freshly made which contributed to the sensational taste. Thank you Piotr, that was the BEST gnocchi I have ever had! Love your work and passion for beautiful food. From the two Kiwi girls Amanda & Josie.

“Fabulous new Cafe in Cavan Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Just been for lunch in a wonderful new Cafe in Cavan Town. Hidden away in the least traversed part of the town Centre Cafe Zebra is just a wonderful little gem of character and good food. A few weeks ago I stumbled upon it on my way to another shop and stopped for coffee. I was enchanted by the quirky decor and family friendly details such as a blackboard on one wall where children can sit and scribble while their parents eat.
The Cafe is absolutely spotless as are the toilets. The staff, who I think run the whole show themselves, where lovely. The atmosphere was serene and pleasant.
I went back there today for lunch and had a simple toased sandwich and coffee. I think you can judge the real quality of a place by how they do the simple things and it was the nicest toasted sandwich I have had in Cavan town. I can not wait to go back and try there Crepes.
