“A wonderful Irish experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

What a wonderful place to be, drink and eat. Very friendy staff, tasty scones, cupcakes and much more.
Ein Besuch in Cong, sollte unbedingt mit einen Besuch im Hungry Monks Cafe einschließen. Ich empfehle die Scones, die es dort in diversen Variationen gibt.

“Amazing food!!! The best service!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

The service was terrific!!! I had asked a question regarding what is a bap. They took the time to kindly share their knowledge and even went back to the kitchen to bring out a sample of the famous blap bap. The food was fabulous. I had the most terrific teriyaki pork belly sandwich on a blap bap. My side of potato salad, I seriously could have eaten a gallon of. Highly recommend!!!!!!!!!
