Had an excellent breakfast just one thing missing ...fresh orange juice...i had to buy fruice instead which i couldn't drink & ruined my morning as i dont drink tea or coffee. I cant understand why there are no fresh juices on offer.

Chapter One Living Dublin Road Cavan ticks every box, atmosphere, ambience, friendly staff, exceptional owner. The place was buzzing but every customer got an efficient service. The quality, standard and choice of food was amazing. Well done to Grainne and Team. 10/10.
