6 of us in our family had a very warm welcome. The lady who served us really helped us with exploring the local area. With outside dining we were made very welcome and the outside dining service was fantastic. A very tasty lunch with many...smiles. When in Blessignton for lunch we would really recommend this cafe.More

We got the best ham and cheese sandwich in this cafe today. It was well presented in a take away container with crisps. Along with a lovely hot coffee, it was filling lunch. Friendly service. Looking forward to being able to sit inside. Plenty of...old world charm.More

There should be a diversion sign in Blessington, taking people straight to the cafe door. No one should pass here without treating themselves to at least one of Patricia's top class coffees.

We stumbled upon this café on a cold winter's day in December as we returned to our hotel from a morning's walking. What a cute little place it is indeed located on the main street in Blessington. Blink and you might miss so make sure...you don't! You feel like you have been transported back in time to the world of Jane Austen with dainty china cups, floral tablecloths and a very creative menu (lots of cool titles). There is also a small craft shop on site where you can buy crocheted items and other bits and pieces. The staff were friendly. Tables are well-spaced out with plexiglass between some too but thankfully this takes nothing from the charm of this place. What can I say? You really feel that this café is a person's dream realised, their "happy place". Please support it. PS: The food was good too.More

We stopped in for just a quick bite and were completely charmed. All necessary COVID precautions were taken and we felt safe and comfortable during our visit. The staff was lovely and friendly, the food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was everything you could...possibly hope for. It is immaculately decorated and the crockery is stunning. A charming place, not to be missed!More

We visited crafternoon tea during the week as a family of four. I had a cheeky prosecco lunch which was delicious. We were served by Patricia the manager and she provided excellent service, the best I have experienced in a long time. The cafe is...elegantly decorated and spotlessly clean.

Apologies for the delay getting back to you, we do indeed have an accessible toilet, and as the other respondent said, it is very pretty, not merely a functional space but an attractive one too. Hope this helps.
