In Carlow with my son for an appointment and was looking for somewhere to treat him with a bit of breakfast. He enjoys a good pancake and he wasn’t disappointed. Likewise my full Irish was spot on. Would highly recommend this cafe.

There doesn't seem to be a lot of choice when it comes to breakfast spots in Carlow. We arrived here about 10am. Staff were very friendly and attentive. The menu choices consist of different varieties of an Irish fry so menu is pretty limited. What...I did like is that they offered a 'slimmers' option, the only problem was the menu only gives names of the dishes so you have no idea what each one consists of. After asking for some clarification which the waitress happily did, I went for the Full slimmers breakfast and my partner got the full Irish. I also got a cappuchino which I wouldn't recommend as the coffee wasn't great and was quite watery rather than foamy. The slimmers fry was poached eggs and mushrooms, tomato and rashers. All very tasty and well cooked. The full irish also had sausages, pudding and hash brown. Egg was overdone but other than that was tasty. The cafe itself lets it down more than anything. The chairs are uncomfortable and clearly very old. The decor is stale and its in need of a revamp badly. Food and staff does its best to make up for it.More

I've had lunch a few times here & it's so tasty. Huge variety of food, including some healthy options which are nice to have, plus very reasonable on price. Staff very helpful & friendly, will definitely be back.

This place was nice at the beginning but it's starting to look a bit grubby. Floors were filthy full of leaves and dirt from outside. The table stands have dirt and dust on them. Leather is peeling off the seats. Windows filthy inside and out...and could do with some fresh paint on the walls. Napkins and cutlery shouldn't be set before people come in to sit down. You wouldn't know who has come in before hand and just touched those items and didn't order food to eat, and is a waste of stock if they are just left sitting there with dirt all around the areas. Having said that the staff are friendly but slow to approach. The food and beverage is nice and prices are reasonable. They are mostly very busy so it would be worth it for the owners to reinvest in it to bring it up to standard with decor and cleanliness.More
