good food, value for money. very accommidating to any requests. however one waitress on the till was a little rude, think she was blonde with an accent so maybe it was just her nature as some cultures are more to the point.

I sent them back thinking there was a mistake only to be returned the same eggs just cooked through completely. Waitress told me she doesn't know what... More

It seemed to be doing a brisk business so I decided to have lunch there. I am very glad I did. I was greeted right away and... More

We had a lunch here on Saturday and what a little gem it is. We had called in for a snack on the Thursday afternoon and were so impressed we decided to visit again. The food is lovely the staff are so friendly and the service is excellent. The menu has a really good selection and the prices are reasonable

After a visit to the area we tripped across this cafe. As cafes go it is one of the best. The staff were helpful and so friendly especially regarding the many gluten free options. Out of a wide selection of inviting salads you have to try the Clonnakilty pudding and bacon. We will be back you should try it.

We drop in now and again when in Dun Laoghaire. You cannot go wrong here. Four of us came for lunch today. Service was always good, no problems getting extra bits and pieces when needed. A busy place is always a good sign. Seated straight away. Prompt and attentive service. Good selection on the menu and all very reasonable too.... More
