Drop in for coffee and scones after a lovely walk up the river. Sat outside beside the river. Perfect end to a great morning walk. Coffee was ok but no decaf available. Scones were nice.

We ate there twice for breakfast. Reasonably priced and very concerned for their customers. You’ll get more than you expect.

While staying in the beautiful Mount Brandon Cottages in Graiguenamanagh we treated ourself to breakfast in the Waterside. Full Irish for €9.95 (I'm almost sure but less then €10) Beautiful local produce freshly cooked. Offered extra toast/brown bread and lovely coffee. Very friendly staff.
