“Lovely fresh home baking”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Cakes, tea and coffee were good quality and nicely presented. The only thing that lost it one point is that I didn't feel that the staff were particularly friendly. Maybe just an off day for them. A smile from everyone goes a long way and makes for good tips!!

“Should be better”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

This is a nice place to sit in, and has the usual style of a cake and coffee place, with jams and the like for sale. It should be a great spot, but it was disappointing.
I went there recently for breakfast. Home-made brown bread was lovely, but the cooked breakfast was very poor. Rock hard inedible tomatoes, cold poached eggs with plenty of poaching water on the plate,dry slivers of mushrooms, cold beans. Service was curt and perfunctory.
The room itself was cold as well. Again, has all the makings of a good cafe, just needs a bit of focus.

“Never again.”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

I want to let people know about the experience i had today in this cafe in Virginia, Co Cavan.

We had our food with soup and stated to the waitress that the soup had no flavour and that we were prepared to pay for it, and to my surprise the waitress that i said this to decided to charge me for one soup to take the bad luck of it. Well i can assure you that the bad luck they will encounter is that i will let everyone i know of the service that they provide and make sure that no one i know goes to it. Its places like these that in my opinion should not exist.

Its a shame that owners do not stay more in touch with their business and see what harm little actions like this can make big negative impacts to their future.

As stated, Never again will i stand in this location.
