A lot of choices on the menu, good food (pancakes/crepes) and friendly service. Only wish the spicy apples crepes was available more often. A fine café!

Have made lunch stops here a few times before. This time we finished off the Burren woodland walk with a drop in for coffee and crepes. Very prompt service, delicious crepes, prices don’t seem over the top.

Having been here years ago with the children, was delighted to it it still open and still serving wonderful pancakes and milkshakes. Certainly worth a visit, just make sure you have room for a pancake!

On a trip following the Wild Atlantic Way down the Clare Coast we stopped here. Blueberry tarts very good and the crepes looked fantastic. There was a steady stream of visitors and so good turnover of food which is why it’s all so fresh.
