I go to this restaurant quite a bit with my 14 year old and with my work colleagues. The food is filling and reasonably priced but very tasty and leaves you wanting to go again. Service is speedy but friendly. Parking is sometimes an issue. Sunday morning breakfast or brunch is a must try!

We are family of four children and we stopped here on our way to Donegal from Dublin. You have to come off the main road and head towards the town centre to find it but it is worth it. The menu has a wide range of choices to suit all tastes. The kid's options include a juice drink and an... More

I don't normally write reviews - in fact this is a first. Stopped here for a quick bite en route form Galway to Belfast with my wife. I had a chicken fillet burger served with chips, side salad and coleslaw and a really tasty pepper sauce. It was delicious. My wife had cod and chips - it was equally good... More

Been here a few times in the past. This time l thought the cafe was looking a bit rundown. Table was clean but the floor looked dirty & there was a large liquid spillage that the staff ignored as they walked through it on several occassions. Food was plentiful but what was called a panini on the menu was an... 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.
