The staff and atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely. The restaurant is alongside the bus stop and across from the castle. People can get takeaway food and drinks. It is not an expensive place.

Stopped here for lunch after a walk by Cahir castle & river walk. We sat outside & had soup & brown bread, followed by tea & choc cake. No great shakes with the food, venue or service, but all good & we left revived :-) A nice spot overall.

Very nice lattes and beautiful views of Cahir Castle from upstairs. I had the prawn salad it was very nice but there was too much sauce and not enough salad. There was lettuce and a tiny bit of peppers I would have loved some more vegetables.

While the rest of the group was touring ABC (Another Bloody Castle), I wandered around the town and had a delicious snack at this warm place. It seemed popular with the locals, which always is a good sign. The staff were quite friendly.
