I ate in this cafe/ bistro with my two sons aged 13 and 8.Varied menu of starters, light bites, special of the day and full lunch. Food was excellent standard, well seasoned. Caramel Square for dessert a big hit with my children.Will definitely eat here again.

We called in for Sunday breakfast recently. Upon entering I thought it was an Indian Food cafe as there was a lingering smell of spices but I think that was from the upholstery. We ordered the full Irish breakfasts and the food was nicely cooked. The bathroom needs a good clean and paint and the woodwork/furniture needs to be cleaned... More

Me and my boyfriend stopped in spur of the moment at a busy lunch hour, seated promptly and order taken from a friendly waitress, soup was good. Good deal half panini and soup for around seven euro. A bit cramped but none the less a lovely little cafe.

We recently had lunch in this beautiful cafe, which is a little gem in the city centre. The food is homemade and top quality with a fantastic variety. The atmosphere is cosy, warm and inviting. But what really tops everything (even the amazing desserts) is the staff. They are the perfect mix of being friendly, courteous and extremely helpful. We... More

Went in to have lunch on Sunday and it was virtually empty but we were seated directly inside the door because we had our child's buggy with us. It was absolutely freezing outside and every time the door was opened we were frozen; our three year old was asleep in the buggy so we asked to be moved to one... More

I visit this little gem of a cafe nearly every week and it never disappoints me. All the produces are fresh, all the soups home made, their side salads have a twist each week with a portion of something different added and always very tasty. Their dessert selection is delicious and all portions are large, sometimes too large. I would... More

Popped in for a quick bite, tea and scones. It's a lovely place, nice seating, slightly decadent feel about it in a nice way, friendly staff, well worth a visit.

Ive ate here six times and I've had to send food back twice as it was either too undercooked or burnt into a lump of coal it was that uneatable. It's a real shame because the other four times the food has been amazing! And the staff are so friendly and polite and the menu is amazing. It's just those... More
