Stopped off for a bite to eat food was delicious service was brilliant and was good value for money would go back

We were seated at about 11:10 and nobody came back to us until approximately 11:25 to provide us with menus. I ordered the Irish Breakfast and she came back shortly thereafter to tell me they had none left so I ordered the eggs and toast...with hash browns. My toast was then delivered well before my meal so I had to decide whether I wanted to eat warm toast without the rest of my breakfast or cold toast with the rest of my breakfast. Both of my companions ordered the pancakes which came lukewarm at best. There was no way the Nutella was going to melt into those pancakes! My eggs were not cooked the way I'd ordered so I had to send them back and I was advised (when they brought my eggs out) that they also did not have any hash browns. They didn't even bother asking whether I wanted another side instead. They certainly didn't offer, as a gesture of hospitality, to provide me with another side free of charge, which I thought was the least that they could have done. To top it off, the staff was brusque and not at all friendly. I could see that they were busy but maybe they need to learn to staff better or turn people away if they cannot accommodate everyone. We watched a family of 4 leave after 15 minutes because they also had not received any type of service during that time. This place may have the cuteness factor but they did not have the friendliness or professional factor today. With all the other great places in Cashel, I would skip this one in the future.More

Stopped in for a bit of late breakfast when passing. Was greeted at the door by a lovely lady who took our details for contact tracing and shown to our seat. Our order was then taken by an unfriendly, no eye contact girl. We had...the pancakes, which were mediocre. The coffee was good.More

Absolutely gorgeous coffee and lunch today. All of the required restrictions are in place but yet it feels so 'normal' inside. Will define back.

Have been here a couple of times and each time it gets better and better. Lovely new menu and the breakfast is the best around. Cakes and coffee are to die for. Staff are friendly and create a lovely atmosphere. Overall 5 stars.

I absolutely loved this cafe in the centre of Cashel before but they really have outdone themselves with their new burger offering. I had the Buttermilk chicken burger and as a big burger fan it was simply delicious. The fries and coleslaw that came with...the burger were also lovely. There have been some lovely changes made to the already very cosy interior design and it is a place that I could sit for hours. Great to have this spot open again on the Main Street.More

I visit this café frequently, mainly to get one of their gorgeous coffees. By far the best coffee in Cashel. The cakes are always delicious and I am told they are made in house. The staff are always pleasant with smiles on their faces. The...service is very good and quick, even if it is busy!More
