Tiny with outdoor seating only. Blankets and canopies to provide shelter. A little shop sells candles and soaps made by the owners. The coffee and cakes are great quality! Brilliant stop on the Drumbeg loop... But restricted parking. Dont block the road!

You can relax with a delicious light lunch, slice of cake, or scone with jam and clotted cream ... a cup of fresh roasted coffee, or why not indulge in one of our fully loaded hot chocolates pilled high with cream and marshmallows and topped with a chocolate flake.
