By far the best food I have had so far in Ireland and it's not like the standard is high...I am Australian. All homemade, friendly staff and wonderful vibe, would definitely recommend!

Forget about the price, this is by far the most delicious place for coffee, cakes and lunch that Blessington has to offer. Everything is fresh and locally sourced and Richard and his wife make sure that quality and customer service is at a high standard. We come for years and will continue to enjoy breakfasts and lunches - I recommend... More

Came here for a nice brunch, nice food but seriously, they need to rethink the prices. I got a large sausage roll, expecting it to be large... It was not, no bigger than what you would get in a petrol station deli!! And it cost me €6 or more!! So yea, not filling at all. Quaint place but don't come... More

Lovely staff friendly and engaging. Food nice but not exceptional. Toasted ham and cheese sandwich cost 6.95 with no salad or trimmings. Mug of coffee 3.75??? These prices are way over the top. Every member of our 12 person party enjoyed the visit but all said that the prices are ridiculous. Pity! !

Was nice quaint cafe, nice selection of fresh cakes and breads. Found it a little noisy probably due to the stone walls. seemed busy but found it to be very expensive at 3.50 for as coffee. It is organic I suppose but a little pricey for me overall

On a very cold day in January My daughter 2 year old grand daughter and I decided to have lunch here. I believe all food is organic. I had the cauliflour and potatoe curry and it was warming tasty with just a nice hint of spice. My daughter had the Goats cheese tart and salad and it was full of... More

This cafe is a very friendly place to have a coffee or light meal. What sets it apart from others is its first class cooking and its use of top-class ingredients.
