In New Ross again visiting family we were bitterly disappointed in the lack of options for lunch which led us back here. On a miserable dreary Sunday it wasn't overly busy inside. We were greeted just inside the door by a lovely lady and seated...at our table and given menus. The interior has been changed since our last visit and is warm welcoming and cosy. Our server returned to take our order. I had soup and panini and my wife had a roast dinner. Soup is homemade, tasty and filling. Roast dinner is your proper home cooked roast with mash and vegetables. Pricing is on the high side but food is well worth it. Our server was attentive and checked on us often. Too full for dessert we enjoyed our coffee after. Staff didn't rush us and allowed us relax. Wife loved the tiles in bathroom!! Even took photos for reference! Overall a relaxing and enjoyable visit and would happily return. Staff lovely, friendly and helpful. Food delicious. Atmosphere relaxed and ambient. What more could you ask for.More

We stumbled upon this cafe when passing through New Ross and are delighted we did. Staff were v accommodating in seating our family of five. All food was very tasty and real comfort food on a cold winters day. Kids burgers were massive and v...tasty. The chips were yummy proper home cut chips! All staff were v friendly and there was a lovely atmosphere while we were there.More

I was in New Ross on business with my colleagues. I found Ann McDonald’s Cafe on our first day. I continued to go here for the few days we were in the locality. There was an excellent menu for both day and evening. There was...a wide range on the menu. The Food was very reasonable & delicious. The wine list was equally as good. I highly recommend this establishment to anybody. We will be back 🤗More

We went in here for breakfast thinking it looked like a nice place but honestly can say the coffee & toast was the best if it! Ordered a full Irish & scrambled egg & bacon & everything seemed to be deep fried! Rashers were turned...up at edges, full Irish plate was dripping in grease, really with all health warnings!! I would stay well clear as it was a bad experience & not sure where you’re getting eggs they were tasteless!More

Went with my partner the other day for breakfast as she started a new job recently and I wanted to surprise her. we were sat at the back of the Restaurant we were told we would have to leave in 45 mins as someone would...be coming in for our table. As a result we weren’t able to relax for the duration of our meal as we were rushing to have our food eaten. Only to be told at the end our meal they didn’t need our table after all! I ordered the breakfast wrap & orange juice which I reluctantly paid for. my partner then ordered the fry without beans and mushrooms but the whole plate was covered with them I was going to complain but my partner didn’t want me making a scene. I don’t know where they are sourcing their orange juice but if I wanted orange juice from the Congo I would of bought a plane ticket over and I still would of paid less. Needless to say I was disappointed and will not be back if you are willing to take out a second mortgage to have orange juice then it might appeal to you but if not then I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.More

Fabulous food. I order a chicken satay panini and deviated from the menu to have goats cheese also. This was no problem for staff. My husband had a breakfast roll and said it was the nicest one he has ever had. Coffee was perfectly made...( I am fussy about coffee!) We were sitting outside and staff were so helpful and checked on us several times. We were not rushed into finishing our food. I unfortunately left a parcel underneath my table and when contacted they were so helpful in getting it to its destination. Will Definately be back for the chicken satay....... Amazing......More

I got a full Irish breakfast in Ann's cafe this morning. All I can say is "WOW" , exactly what I was hoping for and more. The quality of the food is 2nd to none. Made with such a high standard from , quality, preparation,...efficiency and of course more important taste. Dinners very reasonable here too. Maybe next time we'll come for that instead. Nothing beats a friendly staff with great attitude and enthusiasm. In the times we are in right now , Ann and her staff made us feel so welcomed ☺ travelling from Tipperary, I would highly recommend this place. Looking forward to returning already 😃More

My wife and I dined here last week. They have 4 tables of 2 available outside. When we went inside the shop area the owner informed it was table service and we were seated by her outside and given menus. She returned shortly afterwards to...take our order. We ordered some drinks and sandwiches and the next time we saw her was with card machine in hand looking for payment! We hadn't received any of our order at this stage and were taken aback by her pushiness for us to pay. We found it very expensive for what we got and never saw the owner again after payment was made. Very unprofessional from the owner. Sandwiches and drinks were fine but overpriced. Would avoid in futureMore
