We were passing through on the road from Killarney to Kenmare and stopped for a small bite to eat. The deserts are dangerously good and I'd highly recommend stopping and indulging!

Now a more luxurious place to rest and snack. We like the overhaul the room has had. Great quality snacks, cakes, salads and now even a water font to serve yourself a glass of H20. Clean and fresh even with a huge footfall, staff here...work well together and it shows. Giving a great customer experience.More

Fantastic views from this beautiful mountain pass. Delicious lunches - the salad selection was healthy and interesting, with hot food and quiches available too. Save room for a cake afterwards! The shop downstairs has a wonderful selection of gifts so give yourself time to visit.

I absolutely loved it here,the scenery, the shop with its beautiful clothing, home ware, food and blankets, but most of all having lunch with the stunning scenery out of the large windows. Cosy inside with great choices for lunch. We had a chickpea pastry roll...with two salads, it was really good. The cakes looked amazing but unfortunately I didn’t have room for any. I couldn’t recommend a visit more highly. I guess it could be busy on a weekend or when the weather is good. We went on a soggy week day but I am so glad we passed by and decided to stop rather than waiting till will hit the town. You must go!More

This cafe [ and shop ] is on the top of the pass and isolated but enjoys stunning views. The service was great but the coffee and cakes we enjoyed were of the highest order.

Our family also call into Avoca Moll's Gap religiously on every trip to Killarney and the surrounding area. We have never ever been disappointed. The staff are very nice, the building is kept in great condition and we love coming back for food and to...browse constantly. I have no issue in recommending this to everybody.More

This shop had gourmet snacks, unique gifts, and beautiful views. This is not your typical tourist trap. The packaged goods were sourced from local artisans, the gifts were unique and the view was great. Loved this shop.

An "OK" cafe and shop for the nescessary "break" but it is a shame that the beauty of the place gets spoilt with such buildings
