“Great place for coffee & breakfast”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

I used to eat here a lot, when my son lived nearby. I haven't been there for about 6 months & went there the other day & was blown out that Sam the owner, remembered me by name. I was telling my wife, when he brought over our coffees & also address her by name - pretty impressive stuff!
Good coffee, good breakfast, really good value.

“Good Food, Great Coffee”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

This is not a restaurant but a great cafe. The location is a bit out of the way (so you can park!) and the fit out is basic but if the food and coffee are more important than posing in your designer gear then this place is good!

A small selection of things to order but all prepared by a good chef with the best ingredients. Don't go to Paddy's looking for a huge menu.

The coffee is the 5 senses brand and the Baristas are well trained and passionate about coffee.

“Really good place for coffee and cake”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Paddy's Lantern is in a cafe' in a not overly attractive building, in an not overly attractive street. However it does particularly good coffee and having been for breakfast pretty good food as well.
Had a very tasty mushroom dish could have been a little better I think if it was 50% mushrooms and 50% spinach it could have been better because you can only eat so much mushroom.
So if you're looking for a place for a nice bite to eat or a coffee this is pretty good don't come for a dining experience.

“Yummy brunch”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

This place is run by 3 or 4 young friendly lads. Great friendly service, fantastic coffee. Some unusual items on the menu, but had free range boiled eggs with sourdough fingers. A great experience, and would definitely eat there again. Great value for money.
Seems a bit out of the way, but definitely worth seeking it out.
