Drove past it without realising it was a cafe. Food catered for all, we had a fantastic full Irish and a veggie breakfast. Staff made the effort to chat and treat you like more than a customer. What you'd expect from rural Ireland. Would definitely visit again

This is always our favourite place to go for breakfast. It has a wide range of fantastic foods and many of them can be made gluten free etc. Excellent service and great value. Oh and it all tastes amazing.

There are pub and restaurant choices in Doolin but not too many places to get staples. We found some amazing bread and desserts at the Doolin Cafe yesterday. Fresh and yummy.

We had a chili chicken panini, a vegetable panini and a rhubarb crisp. The panini's were fresh and pretty good, not greasy. The rhubarb crisp was served with vanilla ice cream and was excellent. Nice, cozy place to hide from the rain with friendly staff.

Also one morning our service lady could have put a smile on her face. Wasn't her day. The food was good though and the place has its own cuteness different from a pub. We... More
