This Cafe is a Family run business. The warmth of the host here was awesome. The Coffee and snacks were perfect before a perfect day of travel. Gave us good ideas to go around CORK. Don't forget to have a conversation here. The boys loved the Hot Chocolate !!

We stopped in for shelter from the nonstop rain and something to warm us up. This place was open and bright and warm. And the food was just right: homemade scones! Healthy sandwiches and a nice pot of tea. The staff was friendly and personal, telling us stories about the area. Definitely recommend you stop by for a little lift... More

We went with a large group. After walking all morning we stopped here before going through the Gap. Most had an ice cream and coffee.

I can't understand why you would open a cafe in probably one of the most beautiful parts of the Ireland where tourists are your lifeline and yet offer abrupt/ rude service! The young lady with long black hair needs a long stay in charm school!!!! However the saving grace was the lady with short hair she was lovely.

We stopped here after a 4-hour hike of the Gap and were welcomed by two bowls of steaming, tasy soup and brown bread and two ice cream cones. Reasonably priced, given the location and served with a smile despite being busy.
