Having been in the Restaurant the night before we had to try the cafe for breakfast. We both had the vegetarian wrap with refried beans for breakfast. Fantastic, highly recommend this place.

Dropped in here for a quick bite around lunch time, just a Pizza for her good self and mini pastries with a coffee for me ... superb :-) . This Cafe is part of Richy's Restaurant so we were very happy from start to finish, excellent foods and superb staff.

This cafe is outstanding. We were staying in West Cork and needed a comfortable place to crash for the afternoon and check emails, etc. The R Cafe is the place. Free, fast internet, great food (We had the soup and a Caesar Salad and were blown away.), and fantastic hospitality all make this the place to stop before or after... More

Visited for a family meal. Always such a warm welcome from the staff! Menu has such a great selection, with daily specials and amazing homemade pizza menu also! Drinks/Wine menu with reserve wine offer always changing is excellent! Food tastes so fresh and this venue offers great value for money too! Highly recommend if visiting west cork!

Cozy and warm. Good lunch options including vegetarian. Leave room for dessert. Amazing cakes. The coffee walnut cake was perfect with a pot of tea.

We had lunch here instead of being tempted by the wonderful selection of food at the farmers market because we were tired and hungry and wanted somewhere comfortable to sit down. The menu was limited and pricey, €15 for fish and chips! Seemed a bit much. I decided a hearty bowl of seafood chowder at €8.95 would do the job.... More
