We stopped here for lunch while traveling on Saturday. Very good service, wonderful fresh baked goods especially (tasty scones with excellent quiche, exceptionally good homemade pie for dessert, and really good Swedish coffee). Also had chicken Caesar salad, which was fine--but the baked goods are clearly their strength here. We'll be back.

On our way home from a great trip Up North! This charming little cafe seated our party of 10 right away. Today is Sunday and breakfast was only served until 11am! However they have a nice selection of quiche, panini, and other soups and sandwiches and salads. Overall our crew was very happy with our tasty meals!

We had breakfast on the terrace with our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter. Almost across the street from the Doherty Hotel if you are staying there. Tasty, creative food, super-friendly people. It is quite informal and not top-tier enough to get five stars but we certainly recommend it and would go back.

We were pleasantly surprised to discover a pork rib dinner offered for Father's Day. Portion was so large I had to ask for a box. . .and it was just as good two days later! The specials are always the best way to go but the ribs were exceptional. Love this place.

My sister and hubby ate here and said the menu was limited and we actually did not eat there. But the whole house is also a store with home items, garden items, etc. there is an upstairs and downstairs in front of the restaurant. Pretty setting with an outdoor area to eat at.

My fiancé and I stopped in here for lunch while passing through on a road trip. It's about a mile down the road from all the highway chain restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised by the selection (soups, salads, sandwiches/panini). It appears to be a family run establishment, which we enjoyed. The food and service was quick, and we were really...

Very beautiful older home turned into cafe and gift shop. Very clean with friendly wait staff. We ordered omelets with fresh baked raisin bread. Homemade pies to buy per slice or whole that looked heavenly. In nice weather there is outdoor garden seating. Will come back here for sure when in Clare again.
