Just found the best scones in Cork! I know it's only tea and a scone but it is a lovely place to have it. Very relaxed, lovely staff, spotlessly clean! Will come back another day to try the breakfast or lunch.

Came here for breakfast and everything was superb! Scrambled eggs with toast, black coffee, chocolate cannolo and handmade italien biscuit with strawberry jam. Service was 10/10 and it has a family atmosphere so you really feel at home. Will be coming back!
