“Excellent breakfast selection ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and I decided to check out this café as I'd seen some great reviews about its breakfasts, and it didn't disappoint. The place is very small with a rickety wooden interior, but the staff were extremely friendly, relaxed and forthcoming, and the breakfast menu is excellent: we had the small Irish breakfast and the soda bread stack, and substituting components was not an issue. It appears that Shenanigans have gone in for specialising on breakfasts, and are doing so brilliantly.

“Brilliant Brekkie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

Brilliant little place for brekkie on a saturday morning. The place itself is very small so probably best not to take the whole family along in pushchairs etc. It has a great atmosphere, the staff are lovely and the food was also really good. We had Irish and Scottish breakfasts and I can say there was no grease in sight which is lovely to see!
Keep up the good work and we will be back again and again
