“Great lunch & coffee, enthusiastic & engaging owner”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

We stopped in for a lite lunch & coffee and ended up having an engaging conversation about Waterford, it's history, and Thomas Meagher with the owner/manager. The sandwich and coffee was so very good, and the company was exceptional. Stop in for a coffee and lunch, say "hi" and learn about Waterford, its contribution to Irish and American history.

“I just love everything about Aoifes!!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

The food is lovely ! Fresh healthy sourced relentlessly - despite being busy today we were served in a very reasonable time! By really pleasant staff and the lovely Aoife herself! This coupled with the Artwork and the fact it was the place where the Irish Tri colour was flown in 1848 makes for a really lovely escape!

“Inspiring.”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

I've lived in Dublin for the past 4 years, where the coffee culture is well and truly alive. I found it nearly impossible to find a coffee shop I could call my home in Waterford. I've been to Aoifes only a hand full of times, and I can safely say I have planted my roots. It's not just a coffee shop, it's not just a fantastic place to eat and it's not just an Art Gallery. It is, in fact, a home. Not only to me, but to the community there, the employees there, the Artists and everyone else in between.

The owner Aoife is simply inspirational. She not only runs a cool, hip and much desirable coffee shop, she takes care of everyone who steps over that threshold. Likewise, her employees provide not just a service, but a conversation and a relaxed atmosphere. I mean seriously, what more could you ask for?

Places like Aoifes Café are rare. I would recommend it to each and every person. And if you do venture into their delightful scene, make sure to purchase a suspended coffee! (Yes, she does that too).

“Coffee shop and Gallery”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Well worth the few steps outside the Viking Triangle - just around the corner at the end of the quays. Had the flat-bread Italian sandwich - absolutely delicious - still licking my fingers. While you're there dont forget to try the lemon cheese cake with ginger crumb base - the combination is amazing. If you're on a diet and just want coffee you won't be disappointed. They have an endless list of exotic variations on the humble coffee. They do things with coffee you thought couldn't be done - delicious !

“Lunch before Waterford Crystal”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

Excellent service, food was fresh and delicious. Food was light compared to the Irish breakfast but kept you full until dinner. Recommended to anyone
