A lovely little cafe with beautiful organic and local produce. I quite liked the butternut squash soup and brown bread. But my husbands All Ireland Open sandwich looked mouth watering. Worth stopping here for lunch or even making a detour.

Had scrambled eggs and bacon there recently rubbery eggs and pink sickly bacon. Was disappointed with it. Am a regular visitor there and love their soups and bread. They do great toasted sandwiches eventhough I think they are a bit pricey

The Blackberry Cafe serves the best organic breakfast, lunches and baked goods. The sandwiches and soups are delicious. If in the area, stop by and enjoy, you won't be disappointed.
