With the good weather coming around again this is an ideal spot for lunch outdoors. Homemade food and cakes on offer. Try the sausage rolls and maybe one of the cakes afterwards. Indoor seating is a tad limited but I never found it a huge issue.

Had breakfast in the Cafe recently and it was fantastic. Everything was cooked from fresh and really well, the most ungreasy full Irish I have ever had. The coffee was delicious and the staff were warm, welcoming and really obliging. Great way to start the day.

I love the park cafe. It's a fab setting with friendly staff and gorgeous treats. It's very reasonably priced , so it's great for families. The peanut butter brownie fingers are to die for!!!!

This little coffee place is full all the time, and that is because they have wonderful sweets and they are located at the entrance of the park. All children want to have a break there. And it.s cosy, with tables and couches inside, and also some seats outside in the sun.😀 Nice place to have a coffee and cake. I... More

We went here expecting a nice cooked breakfast (fry) on a Sunday morning only to discover that this was not an option on the 'weekend menu'. Very strange and hugely frustrating. Instead we had a bacon bagel which was ok. Two of these with coffee and a child's Ribena came in at over €16. Nice little place yes, but it's... More

This is a lovely gem in Waterford City. Set at the entrance to the Peoples Park in a beautiful old lodge. We had a lovely goats cheese salad which came with a really tasty balsamic dressing. We then had the lemon cheesecake which was to die for. The staff were really friendly and helpful and we will definitely come here... More

Like a sweetie shop for grown ups, just the most incredible array of fresh home made cakes to entice anyone. Extremely friendly staff too. Well worth a visit to the park

While I was visiting my parents they took me here as they both love it. It certainly lived up to their recommendations. We had a lovely breakfast together. I will be back every time I visit them. Next time I will try the HUGE selection of cakes but my breakfast was so big I didn't have any room left for... More

Located at the entrance to the People's Park just outside the city centre this compact restaurant is a wonderful location to enjoy brunch as we did. Beautifully decorated with the best of home baked breads and cakes it is a delight to order breakfast and have it served outdoors in the park. Always busy and with a wonderful welcoming atmosphere...
