Visited this place for midweek lunch and enjoyed a lovely dining experience. Had the soup of the day which was carrot and coconut and the warm chicken Mexican salad. Both were delicious. The waiter serving us was very pleasant and the manager kindly checked that we were enjoying everything. Nice seating upstairs overlooking the river.

We go here as a family quite a lot during the year. The good is excellent. Not your big standard cafe menu. The prices are very reasonable and the staff are lovely. We'll keep coming back!

Very Good food, I've eaten here a couple of times and the menu does vary. Always good good but they like to change it up. friendly helpful staff. I highly recommend for lunch. The location close to the Shannon is also a plus.

Never try a ChaiLatte: Worst Chai I've ever tasted and not hot, just a little warm... I tried another time also a hot chocolate and it was the same temperature... Furthermore the staff seemed unprofessional and one time pretty unfriendly. But the atmosphere in the coffee is great and the food looks really good!

Rude staff , overpriced food and a horrible owner or chef. No wonder the staff are rude to customers when you can hear the manager/owner/chef, whoever he is shouting at them in the kitchen when you are out having your food. Will never return or advise my friends or family to ever step foot in this place.
