This was our favourite place for breakfast during our stay in Ballyvaughan. The food is delicious and the coffee great. It can get a bit busy but that's a sign of how good it is! Highly recommend.

The staff Washington really unkind, I had to ask please to retire the meal dishes because she served the dessert without doing that. They got confused with my order and I asked her to change but she never apologized. The food was Ok but expensive
