This is a lovely little cafe hidden away down vandeleur street in Kilrush. Nice place to stop for a fresh sandwich or tea and cake. We ordered some sandwiches to take away last weekend which were great (fresh chicken and ham), and good value. Recommended.

Great place to stop for a lovely lunch or a cake and coffee. The goat cheese salad was just what I was looking for and was lovely. Coffee is great. My friends had the coffee cake and apple slice - servings were huge. Highly recommended.

Really, this is the place to come to and enjoy tea, coffee and snacks. This cafe is the place to go to after visiting Scattery Island. A place to share, chat or just relax. "Alternative" free people stop by.. ❤
