“Best Coffee in Inishowen”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Whether you get the coffee from the cafe or mobile shop it is excellent. The staff are very friendly and the cakes are great too. Big plus is that it also does soya milk so good for vegans and anyone with a lactose intolerance.

I called all the way over from America to order a cake for a birthday. When I arrived to pick up the cake the girl at the counter was most friendly and helpful. The cake was exactly what I oredered and was done and waiting for me when I got there to pick it up. The girl even gave us plates and utensils as we did not have any in our suitcases. It was a busy little place but great and friendly service without having to wait too long. Would suggest them for honest service.

“Coffee at the top of Ireland”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

After following the Inis Eoghain 100 circuit, we make it to the top of Malin head. Also known as Banba's Crown.

It's dreary, cold, wet and windy. A fresh hot coffee now would be good.

So to my surprise when we found a coffee truck at the very top, I was a very happy bunny indeed.

The man running the show was a gent and at 1.60 EUR for an americano, it was mighty good value. And he filled the insulated cup I handed him right to the top.

Five stars.

“Cappuccino to die for....”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Easily the best cappuccino that I have ever had. And the tunisian orange cake and brownies are other worldly. Great fun staff as well......

“Delicious cakes”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

The coffee here is definitely the best in Carndonagh. The cakes are delicious as well. The cheery tongue in cheek slogans on the window often illicit a smile and foretell the humour of the staff!
