Went here for lunch one day with my girlfriend while on vacation from Canada. We had cold salad with a savory pastry, then tea and scones for dessert. Everything was great, including the service!

The whole meal from start to finish was great and we weren't sure when we drove up what we were going to get. We tried... More

My husband went this place in the morning to pick up coffee. The lady was lovely and she accepted a card even though they don't accept cards for less than 10€. We really appreciated it since there's no atm in Doolin. We went back there for lunch. There was a different lady working. Our 4 year old boy was walking... More

We wanted a light bite to eat on our trip to the Cliffs of Moher and my father-in-law has a friend who said "when you visit Doolin, Ireland you MUST eat at the Doolin Cafe!" We were impressed with the knowledge and courtesy of the wait staff when we asked questions about how certain menu offerings were prepared. The homemade... More

I believe the cafe is open for breakfast and lunch in Sreptember. The sandwiches are fresh, and excellent with good selection including pizza. The cafe is cozy but not large although it does handle busses.

We stopped in for great coffee and french toast before heading to the Cliffs. Warm and welcoming cafe in the terribly cute town of Doolin. Friendly staff were very busy but moved quickly to serve the customers. Recommend!

We arrived into Doolin late in the afternoon looking for a little bite to eat. We enjoyed a great chicken and pesto bruchetta and a georgeous scone with some coffees. Lovely choice of food and a nice vibe from the place.

Great coffee, pleasant staff, service was a little slow as there was a large crowd in the cafe, but there were more than enough staff so they should have been able to cope better!!
