Very nice food, generous portions and very friendly service. Try their club sandwich or the daily specials. If you're in the Chelsea/Newbridge road area, look no further

It was a cold, wet day when I ventured into this cafe for a meeting. The temperature inside was similar to that outside and immediately I felt tense and unwelcomed. I asked the young assistant if it was possible to make the place warmer and I got the sense my request had aggrivated him. Ten minutes later, the nearby radiator... More

Found this cafe on Trip advisor and was not disappointed. Good fresh local food. Very popular with locals. Had excellent coffee and fabulous jacket potato. Service was quick and was with a smile. If I am in the locality again, I will certainly revisit.
