“Great place for coffee/dessert with wifi”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We had coffee and dessert after exploring Cong and some of the trails leading to Ashford Castle. It was nice to have wifi access for a check-in. The service was good even though they were very busy.

“Need a quick bite?”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This is a lovely little cafe that closes around 4:00, but offers a great stop for a light lunch or mid day snack as you are walking around. They serve soup, paninis, pastures and hot beverages.

“Cosy treat”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

What a lovely cosy place to have a cuppa of tea and a scone! This cafe is very small but welcoming. You have a very generous scone with your tea. There was a good selection of snacks and delicious chips. Just across from the abbey ruins it is well situated. Well worth a stop in this very pretty village.
