Bright and peaceful restaurant. It must be good if to sit outdoors in the summer. Self serve style, food was excellent. A good place after visit to the Hunt Museum. I would definitely come back try more different dishes again.

My wife and I - and her friends - are fairly frequent visitors to the Hunt Cafe. It is very well located and the staff, and owner, Helen, are really lovely people. Would always recommend to visitors to Limerick
