I have been to the cafe a number of times now, so I have a pretty solid opinino of it.
The food is quite tasty, if small on portions (but in these years of 'The Obesity Crisis', this is probably a good thing). The staff are nice and helpful and food is delivered quickly.
The desserts are delicious and reasonably priced.

I've been to this restaurant twice, while it's really nicely decorated, simple and quirky, I was expecting so much more. The staff each time have been very good. The first time I visited I convinced myself they were having an off day, though my friends also had tasteless food. I visited again the other night in the hope of being at least a little impressed but unfortunately I really wasn't. I got the 'amazing meatballs' which comes with cous cous and a homemade tomato sauce, the meatballs were far from amazing, so tiny and there was only 5 of them. The sauce was bland and the cous cous was well... boring. My partner got the Gobi veggie curry which was also pretty tasteless and had almost no curry flavoring at all. While I understand that the chef wasn't going for a typical curry flavour, it would have been nice if there was even a little bit of flavour, unfortunately there was not. The menu is alright, it has a lot of really nice items, but each of the ones I have tried all tasted like nothing. Even a little salt and pepper would go a long way. It seems like the chef is afraid of seasoning. I really want this place to work out, the simple, healthy food idea is something that is needed in Limerick but healthy doesn't have to be bland. The fully biodegradable corn cups are cool, as are the cardboard serving boxes as well as the wooden disposable cutlery. It's got everything a place needs to work, everything except tasty food. I hope they sort this out. I really want it to survive.

This tiny cafe serves absolutely top-notch espressos and cappuccinos - and I'm very fussy! I didn't eat here, but the menu looked very interesting as well as healthy and good value.
