We visited Waterford and were looking for somewhere to eat lunch when we came across Berfranks. The sign said Gluten Free available and we went in. Pleased to say we had a great lunch and the staff were very pleasant. Try it.

We visit here regularly and it has a friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend the BLT, cappuccino tastes lovely. My son loves the bakewell cake warmed and served with fresh cream. All items on the menu are excellent we've taken many friends for a bite for lunch and never had to complain. Simple things like the recognition as you walk through the... More

Called to buy lunch as they are on the gluten free recommended list, and after choosing what we wanted they decided to tell us they had no gluten free bread left! Very small licenced shop that sell delicious looking food but sadly we couldn't buy.

You don't often get to experience good music and delicious food at the same time over breakfast, but you can indeed get it at Berfranks. My wife and I were totally enamoured during our one-hour stop in this beautiful cafe. We only wish that we weren't so far away so that we could become regulars here. My wife had a... More

This is such a great place on the Waterford riverside. Lovely food, particularly the soup, and many delicious cakes to choose from. Above all, the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend.

Food is fab, savour or sweet, great selection and cosy little café. Ideally situated on the Quay across from plentiful parking and only stroll away from main shops and shopping centre. Good pit stop if your shopping up a storm or looking to while the afternoon away over some yummy cake and a latte
