Had a great feed, can't fault the food or service! Coffees were fairly average but the milkshakes were great! The only thing was the bathrooms, the tiles had been cleaned but were still a bit wet, incredibly slippy, was a bit nervous of my mother...More

this is a family friendly cafe with a lot to offer the hungry traveller,with foods from all around the world form the american eggs benedict made famous by the waldorf hotel,to fajitas to fish and chips this cafe loves what it does and constantly update the menu to please as many as possible. so if you only need to take the waight off with a latte, or want to fill up on an american grill we cater to all. but if you feel you want to try a bit of history why not try our Guinness world record "World largest commercally available full irish/english breakfest" its not for the faint hearted.
