Love Berfranks. It's a great little spot. The warm welcome and the recognition is mighty. I love my coffee and my mother loves a chai latte so it's perfect for us. The chai latte is the best around by far. Also the gluten free bread is superb. You won't be disappointed. Oh did I mention the infamous Waterford bla? Check... More

We stopped in for a drink and were impressed with the staff and the cleanliness of the place. We finished our drinks and then asked for the menu. My wife enjoyed the Belgian waffle with strawberry and chocolate. I had the crab sandwich with the mushroom soup. Delicious!! Located on the quay in Waterford.

A great place on the quay in Waterford to put down the shopping bags, rest the feet and Enjoy a nice coffee while the world passes by outside. A nice selection food and pastries is available.

Just popped in for a coffee for the first time this week and was bowled over by the warm, friendly, welcome that we got. Obviously some great characters working there, which was fun. Lovely coffee and great cakes.

Had afternoon lunch here, ham in my sandwich was off colour, it really put me off and the toilet was broken so had to go to a pub up the road and use there toilet. Very very poor. Man working there wasn't friendly maybe shouldn't be in that line of work, girls are nice tho.

Had a late lunch here recently and we were left a little disappointed. The cafe is a cute little place on the quays with lots of awards on display outside. Staff were nice. We ordered a sandwich each and a coffee. The food was average at most and very over priced for what it you got. Bread was tasty but... More
