We were passing through Kilrush today and I liked the sound of this cafe from the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed!! It was one of the best lunches I've had and the ambience and service was excellent. The soup and sandwich we had were delicious and the coffee and walnut cake to die for! Highly recommend you visit... More

I've eaten here twice lately and have had the same thing both times, sundried tomato and goats cheese bap! It's fab and not something you will get on a menu anywhere else in Kilrush! Love going here, lovely atmosphere.

A relaxing place to meet friends for coffee and cake. Also with healthy options for lunch. And an added bonus of wifi. Well Worth a visit
