We called around 11. a.m. on New years day and it was fairly packed. The homemade scones and tea and coffee were very welcome and delicious also reasonably priced.

Have eaten here a few times and have to admit it can be very 'hit or miss' which is unfortunate.. it's very tight inside and they're understandably trying to maximise the use of the space for tables but it ends up being very cramped.. not to mention when you go to pay and have wait staff getting annoyed with customers...

I got the beef burger and it was delicious, the meat was juicy and tender and the chips were well cooked, the relish was even better!! The service was good but a little unorganised... overall a cute little cafe with a good menu and delicious sweet options

We had a beautiful meal at this restaurant on New Year's Eve. Every dish from start to finish was amazing. All of the staff were very attentive and professional. We look forward to going again in the near future.

We were returning home after Christmas and wanted lunch before our journey back to Dublin and then onward journey to the UK. Even at 12, the place was really busy. We chose chicken quesadillas, leek and potatoe soup, chowder and a... More

My bri]other had a burger. Everything was just delicious. Add to this the lovely ambience if the old building, the lovely staff,... More

Huge selection of cakes - I had carrot, delish. Service was very pleasant and efficient even though extremely busy. If in town, it's a must for... More
