The style of this café is amazing! Very vintage with cute teacups everywhere. The cakes are amazing and there is a big choice of tea! Not the cheapest place to go, but definitely worth the money!

We had "full Irish" breakfast there. It's a charming place and the food and service were both just perfect. The waitress was exceptional - and helped with my friend's walking aid and getting comfortably seated, which a lot of people are reluctant to do. We...More

A really cute little shop does breakfast all day on the weekends, it was really lovely but slightly over prices, 9.50 for one pancake is really a bit much although it was lovely
