A fairly regular customer at the coffee shop, my boyfriend and I love to grab a quick cuppa and a bit of breakfast here before work. My favorite is the potters river, absolutely fab. Tried a little bit of the paté to taste the last time I was in, and am fairly fussy about it, but it was absolutely gorgeous... More

My wife and I had lunch here a few days ago. What a find! Great friendly service, delicious food, reasonable prices ... this place is simply brilliant! Coffee wasn't great, but with such lovely food, they are totally forgiven! We loved The Coffee Shop.

I came here for a quick lunch. The staff were very friendly and although it was busy the queue moved very fast! I loved the broccoli salad and the mushroom soup! Thank you ;)

Just had the most delicious apple tart I've had in years at the Coffee Shop. This is the best cafe in Wicklow town. Comfortable, clean and with a good range of homemade cakes, sandwiches etc. Highly recommended.

I had been meaning to try this coffee shop for breakfast/lunch as it looked lovely from the outside so one bank holiday morning, my fiancé & I decided to go. I got the BTL from the "gourmet sandwich" selection, which was on the blackboard. I was quite disappointed in it, if im ordering a BTL I would usually expect it... More

Found this purely by chance and what a find. There was a great selection of food on the menu and although busy we were able to sit outside in the sunshine. We placed our order and our lunch was made frwsh to order. The sandwiches were glorious and used local ingredients. It was just what we needed. Although there was... More

Like many I have been scorned by the YouKnowWho. I haven't been to the café for a long time as my last experience wasn't so friendly. However giving it another chance was a must because the food is quite good. Homemade fresh and unique sandwiches and soups are plentiful. The décor is country minimalistic giving a sense of warmth and... More

Hi Frankie, I don't normally respond but feel I have to having reviewed a video of your visit yesterday. The customer, who you feel was skipped ahead of you, was in the queue with his 9 year old son ahead of you, but, I'm sure unwittingly, you walked around and across in front of him whilst you were waiting to...

The coffee shop is one of the longest standing business in Wicklow. Their scones are the best particularly the berry ones :-) lovely for breakfast, lunch or just a sweet treat.

I come here probably once every 2 weeks and I love it. Even better if you get the window seat :) Lovely for a spot of lunch or for just a coffee and a cake. I would highly recommend the Sweet Potato and Chilli Soup or the Spicy Veg Soup if they are on when visiting.
