We went for a breakfast and really really enjoyed it. Fantastic, fresh food with perfect coffee, smiling staff. Full irish only 9.95 incl tea or coffee. Right price. Very cosy and peaceful place with relaxing music. Would definitely go there again.

The waffles, scrambled eggs, and Toast that we ordered for breakfast were super delicious. Especially those waffles, they were soft and yummy.

This has to be one of my fravourite places to go for tea after a bit of shopping. The owners and staff are always so friendly and accomodating with whatever you ask them. They have the best lemon meringue in the city i think.
