Lovely selection of sandwiches and treats for lunch. Busy cafe but service is quick. Can be difficult to secure seating at peak times.

Nice food and nice staff. Restaurant is a little cramped if you have more than two but otherwise would recommend.

We had breakfast here on three occasions during our recent stay near Clonakilty. Everything is freshly cooked with quality ingredients sourced locally. Service was friendly and efficient. We would certainly call in again - hopefully to try lunch another time.

A wonderful oasis offering meals, but their coffee and cake is wonderful. A wide choice of freshly made cakes/ desserts.

Waited over 30 minutes for fishcakes, asked for extra sauce the minute I was handed the plate. They eventually came out with it it was the wrong sauce and I had long finished my meal. This was the second chance I gave the place after having a bad experience there last year. It won't get a third! Bad value for... More

Going to Ireland to enjoy the food, and this is where you get your dinner(lunch). A lovely lunch spot which fed the kids and the adults really well.
