Nothing I like more for a pleasant lunch than O'Briens. The staff are just fantastic, friendly and accommodating. The food is excellent, we can even sample new soups before we order. Fantastic girls keep up the good work. The food never fails to impress. Great value for money. Highly recommend.

For me this cafe is very special since I used to go here a lot with my friends during my time in Ireland. The food here is great, tasty and affordable. The staff is mostly nice, the service could be very slow at times tho! I recommend to always get the sandwich toasted!

Prices here are same as in most coffee bars but given how few customers there are in this shopping centre, the poor standard of table cleanliness and the display cleanliness I can only imagine is as a result pf the staff there being really, really, reeeeaaally slow. Took two staff 20 minutes to do three basic coffees. Yawn. No others... More

The service was very slow . Waited over 20 minutes for two sandwiches and 2 drinks. People were skipping the Q nothing was said to them by the staff. The coffee is terrible. No taste at all ,it's like water down. The lattes does be far to hot too. I find the sandwiches nice but after an hour or too... More

I would just like to pass comment on the above coffee shop. I was in it recently and I found the hygiene to be lacking and as its a premises that serves food I think this could be looked into. Having said that their food is very good and the staff really nice.
