Very pleasant place to have breakfast. Very good value and staff really helpful and friendly. The only down was the music was so loud it was hard to talk. But still worth another visit.

We stopped for lunch on our way to Dingle. There is a wide variety of delicious homemade desserts in the case. The soups and sandwiches are delicious! Great place for scones as well.
