What a lucky find this was. We were walking around looking for a café for coffee, coming up empty on a Sunday morning during off season, and couldn't have been more happy. It was the first time in Ireland that we were confident we were getting true organic farm fresh food. Aine is an amazing cook, and is putting her business together right. Very clean place, and great service and conversation with the owner (if she can chat). You can easily be happy with a coffee and a home baked scone with jam and cream, but don't miss out on the other treats and great 'real' food. A real gem! Highly recommend!!! Excellent!

This Coffee Shop/Restaurant was a great place to eat. All homemade food and pastries were delicious. The atmosphere was friendly and beautifully decorated bright colours and decoration. The service was excellent well worth a visit.

I visit Ballyb every summer and have tried so many types of coffee shops, restaurants etc over the years but this, by far, is the best. The atmosphere was so friendly and the food was simply amazing. So fresh and none of the pre packed stuff you find elsewhere. I will be back to the Mixing Bowl over and over and over.........and over again

Visited the mixing bowl recently having seen the great reviews on TripAdvisor and was delighted we did. The selection of food and cakes was stunning and the only real negative wad trying to decide what to actually have given the temptation thrown at us. Very friendly service from the proprietor who gladly engaged in conversation rather than just take our money and move on. Could not praise the mixing bowl highly enough.

Thank John F B

For a bowl of soup, kids sandwich plus milk and adult plain sandwich with tea charged 27 euro, yes the food was very good as was the service but that price left bitter taste. To be fair I think they made a mistake but no receipt was offered and as there was a queue behind me I just left rather than question the bill.

Hello there Dubpoh

Thank you for taking the time to write your review, I had responded at the time but this seems to no longer be visible. Anyhow, had you asked to speak with the owner/ manager you would have been issued with a receipt as mentioned by yourself and as rightly observed we are not a 'Rip Off' there was obviously was an honest mistake made, you were overcharged accidentally and if you would like to make contact with me, I would only be delighted to refund you, by lodging the differenceto your bank account! My number is 086 3809266 your full bill should have been €15.50, milk for a child is only €1.50 as has always been v clearly priced on our menus from the outset.

Look forward to seeing you again in the future. Kind regards
Aine
