This coffee shop is just off the main street in Bantry, and we only found it this year. It seems to do a steady trade between sit-in and take out. We visited here twice during our holiday and would easily have made it a daily stop if the waistlines allowed.. Om both visits, we had coffee and cake, which was... More

On a recent trip to a very rainy Bantry, my wife and I came across the cafe. Not much to say, everything was as it said on the tin,.. Very good coffee,... very good homemade cakes,... nice crowd,... Just what we wanted. Recommended.
