"We are disappointed and surprised that you were not happy with your breakfast, as no mention of this was made when you paid your bill. When you enquired about the waffles, you asked were there" lumps of sugar" in our waffles? As there are no "lumps of sugar" in our waffles the waitress correctly answered in the negative. As to...

Went here for breakfast the other morning. There were 4 adults and 6 small children in our group. The staff were lovely - very accommodating. We all had different breakfasts ranging from a full Irish to waffles. The food was lovely and very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend!

Ate a lovely relaxing lunch. Great home made bread and cakes. Based just a 5 min walk out of kenmare. Great big garden at the front of the premises. If you have the weather you can eat out in the sun. Plenty of space for the kids to run free. Great service.

Thank raggy1971
