Whether it's a morning coffee or a light lunch you simply can't beat this little gem, the staff are wonderful, the coffee excellent and the wholesome "real" food second to none. The place has a real buzz about the place and our family loved it, take a little stroll down along the harbour after to get some sea breeze.

A delightfully charming coffee shop located in the heart of this quaint town. Coffee is sublime and the food is hot and delicious! The staff are cheerful and helpful. A definite stop if you are passing through or staying at Wicklow.

One of very few decent coffee shops in this small town. But quite a few sandwich/light lunch/soup options. Pleasant helpful staff and very reasonably priced. Not many tables and we only just managed to get a table.

Caramel Shortbread best in the planet. Carrot cake a close second, either after the home made soup. Family business for 40 years. Worth a visit.

I have become a regular here and am never disappointed. Good lunch time options but I usually go for the homemade soup and brown bread.

This coffee shop is always packed, so we were delighted to get a table without any bother just before lunch time today. It's such a lovely day, Wicklow town looked splendid - hanging baskets in full bloom, colourful shop exteriors, sun shining - you couldn't ask for more. Had a coffee and a tea with two delicious fruit scones. Service... More

A fairly regular customer at the coffee shop, my boyfriend and I love to grab a quick cuppa and a bit of breakfast here before work. My favorite is the potters river, absolutely fab. Tried a little bit of the paté to taste the last time I was in, and am fairly fussy about it, but it was absolutely gorgeous... More
