Very cosy environment. Foods are lovely. Definitely recommended for a laid-back afternoon tea or just for a casual bite.

We arrived in Skibbereen after a rough sea crossing from Liverpool and the early morning drive down from Dublin. We had scrambled eggs with bacon, toast, marmalade and coffee. The food was well prepared and was served promptly. Everything was to our liking. Apple Betty's Cafe is very popular with the locals and all diners are greeted warmly.

My friend and I called in here on the afternoon of the O'Donovan brothers' homecoming, just for cake and coffee. Quite a lot of tables in the sunshine outside as well as within the coffee shop were taken, and there was an encouraging queue at the sandwich counter. The narrow width of the shop front is deceptive as there is... More

We visited this beautiful little café 17/08/2016. It was a lovely day so we made the most of sitting outside in the good weather. There was a fabulous selection of meats, salads and cakes to choose from. Every dish is made up fresh as you order, so was well worth the wait. We couldn't fault our meals. Yum :) And... More

We've visited twice now. This is a small, cosy and picturesque coffee shop. Great coffee (which is not always a foregone conclusion in coffee shops!). We had a lovely lunch - salads, and great apple pie and cakes on another occasion.

A good alternative to Fields. Java coffee and teas. They do an excellent flat white with a double shot. Lovely cakes, scones and yo-yo biscuits. Outside tables and chairs also available.

I visited Apple Betty's recently with my Sister. It was quite busy but we got a table. The staff were nice and friendly. The cafe was lovely and clean. We had coffee which was very good and two open sandwiches.The prices were quite reasonable.

We visited this cafe on our holidays. I was really impressed by the kindness of the staff, there was an older lady in front of us in the queue and the staff carried her tray to her table and helped her count out her money, all of this was done with such geniune care - with the impression that nothing...
