Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place looks ok from the outside - I was happy to see the classic Avocado on Toast on the menu and ordered it with an americano. Service was very slow yet it was only 11 am. When.the Avocado on toast arrived - it was...far from a classic! A piece of dull cold toast was topped with a light smear of unseasoned tasteless avocado. Which was further topped with ice cold slices of tomato and further topped with a strong tomato relish - all smothered in seeds! The relish was so strong that the avocado didnt have a chance! It was an unpleasant cold mess. Whoever devised this miserable concoction has absolutely no clue about food flavour... At the very least the toast might have been warm! The coffee was ok...More

Average dressed up as lamb! Well intentioned. Not impressive. Probably best for a coffee and pastry....not necessarily a meal. It's OK.

The coffee was delicious! The service was friendly! After a long ride from Dublin it was a wonderful rest stop. Next time we will need to try the oysters!

Was in Sligo today for the afternoon and stopped in for lunch, was greeted my a couple of lovely members of staff upon arrival inside and they were very happy and eager to help us, they immediately pointed us in the direction of the menu...and took our order and asked us to take our table after taking our order and our details. I had the club sandwich and the vegetable soup which I would highly recommend to anyone is passing and is a bit peckish, the soup is delicious and the sandwich is just perfect really tasty. We also had the Ceaser salad which was a fine portion and was lovely as well. The cafe itself is a fine size and very relaxing with plenty of room and space between tables so you have some privacy to have your own conversations. Definitely worthy of a stop if your in the area, and on Fridays they also do tours of their oyster farm giving you a chance to see how it works and taste the products.More

We ended up at WB's after a tour of lovely Sligo led by our very knowledgeable hostess, Aisling. Our mission was the ultimate Oyster Experience and we were not disappointed. Aisling gave us a very thorough overview of how oysters are farmed, and then we...sampled some delicious oysters straight from the bay, both raw and cooked, as well as some mussels -- all washed down with gorgeous white wines. The experience was a great value for the money, and we walked out feeling very full. Highly recommend the Oyster Experience!More

This is a super little cafe located in Stephen St, Sligo, Ireland. We arrived there at around lunch time and I thought I was hungry so I ordered an open tuna sandwich with salad and coleslaw. WOW!!! when it came to me it was HUGE!!...After eating halfway through it I was done and certainly not hungry anymore. It definitely was value for money. It was a lovely clean cafe and the three girls working there were fabulous. They were happy, pleasant, friendly, had a great sense of humor and the service was excellent.More

I got the vegetable soup with soda bread . I found pieces of something floating inside my soup. I brought this to the attention of the staff, specifically the woman with the blonde hair and facial piercing. She was very rude about the whole situation....I also felt that the place was quite disorganized and my table had crumbs and such on it when i sat down. I will not be returning or recommending to a friendMore

Ordered 'Ballysadare Scrambled eggs' and an Americano, coffee was o.k. however the scrambled eggs had lots of egg shells throughout and the eggs seemed as if they were cooked in the microwave they tasted liked rubber. The scrambled eggs were served with a rocket salad...smothered in an overpowering dressing of balsamic vinegar and what appeared to be dejon mustard which was completely wrong with a bowl of ketchup, the dish was the worst breakfast I have ever tasted. To make matters worse the toast was burnt. Overall I just ate the eggs as I was starving. While service while quick it was brash and insincere. No excuses as it was not even busy at this time of the morning, also the table and chairs were untidy with old food and crumbs / remains all over the floors and table from the day before I reckon. The toilets at the premises are not clean either, to me unisex toilets never work! At a price of €9.55 there is much better value to be had in Sligo!!More
