Cafe was a bit cold. It was first thing in morning. Very pleasant lady serving. Food was grand. Prices competitive. Would go again.

We were staying up the road at the Malone Lodge Hotel and Apartments. We had breakfast at The Mad Hatter Cafe one morning and it was so much better than what was being offered at the hotel. Highly recommended.
