This coffee shop does an amazing range of HUGE traybakes and snacks. I got hot chocolate, served in a bowl with cream, marshmallows and a flake - and it was delicious.

Tasty lunch for the second time in a month this afternoon at Clements. Table service is an excellent idea and the croque Monsieur is tasty and filling. Food arrived very quickly.

Have not spent much time in Cathedral Quarter. Tried this as wanted to have a snack rather than eat (and overpay!) on the ferry back over to Scotland. Food was excellent - toasted wheaten bread and a luscious scone (had run out of the daily special unfortunately - apple crumble scone yummy! ) and a coffee and caramel frappee. Prices... More

Went to Clements Botanic 5th Jan for a morning coffee. Although the place was empty, after nearly a 10 min wait, I was forced to ask a member of the staff to take my order. The Cappuccino that arrived was lukewarm and anaemic, bearing no resemblance to that which one would expect from a Clements coffee shop. Disappointing.

Close to Queens University, the Clements cafe offers good coffee and a varied selection of sandwiches and wraps and all at affordable prices. It attracts a mixed but mostly young crowd and the welcoming atmosphere has much to do with the friendly staff.

Visited here with the intention of just having a Latte but ended up having a slice of cake as well which was delicious. Good place to meet up.

Lunch was needed in Ballyhackamore this Saturday so decided to try Clements cafe, it's ok, clean, good service, but the food was decidedly lack lustre, we both had soup and a panini, portions were mean to say the least, no bread, no salad, would we go again? Probably not, far better places to eat very close by

Meet a friend here every few months for lunch. Busy spot which is always a good sign. Excellent selection of sandwiches and pain is. Had the bacon and Brie which is a particular favourite. Very tasty. Coffee is always good. Staff very friendly. Pleasant spot to spend some time.

2 x (coffees and bagels) for nearly £13. I can't wrap my head around it. The place is nice, a lot of free WiFi users but that's overrated. I'll not be back

Thank Steviebizel
