We stopped here in a local recommendation. The 8 of us ordered a different meal at lunch. All 8 of we’re happy with our selection! The breads are homemade in house and were incredible! Bright and cheery restaurant. They made me iced tea!!!!

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.
