“Not my cup of tea - or coffee!”
Review of Al's Restaurant

Al's Restaurant
Ranked #40 of 57 Restaurants in Midleton
Cuisines: Delicatessen, Irish
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Al's is located in the Market Green shopping centre, oppposite Tesco's. It is a general café/coffee shop and offers hot and cold meals, coffee, tea etc, and has an attached smoothie bar etc.
Despite various incarnations (including as an Indian late-night restaurant) it is just not a very appealing place to visit.
It does seem to provide decent basic meals and has a variety of breads and cakes etc on offer, but it is never very clean, which I find really off-putting. The floor is sticky and dirty, the tables seem to be the same, despite apparently being wiped down fairly regularly by staff (whose uniforms frequently match the tables ...). The furniture is grubby and some needs replacing or repairing.
It's a shame because location wise, if some real effort was made, including improving the coffee!, then it would be great to drop in and have a drink and a snack and a chat, but as it stands, it's not very inviting.
