We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and went there for lunch today. Very good food which was efficiently served and reasonably priced. They had a good 'slimming world' type menu alongside the regular menu. Would return when in Cavan.

Lively busy cafe in central Cavan town, huge choice of food all cooked on the premises, staff very helpful and friendly. They have a big specials board on the back wall so something to suit everybody's taste.
