The food and service are excellent. Highly recommended. The variety of food is terrific and the speed in which it is served is very satisfactory. It is great value for money. No wonder there is a queue waiting to be seated!!

The food here is top notch. A great choice of dishes available. It is a very busy spot so be prepared to wait for a while.

Have met friends/family here numerous times over the years and on every occasion lunch was delicious, tasty, fresh and served by helpful friendly staff. Delighted that pilgrims have finally got a warm, bright place to recharge their batteries with shuttle bus for the elderly or less able. Need more of the same in Knock for the large numbers who attend.

This is a perfect spot for a nice breakfast. Nothing fancy just good food each time you go. Cafe is lovely bright and clean. Can be very busy pending the day for instance; Sunday after mass.
