Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Bacon and egg Blaa was great, perfectly cooked. Good coffee and friendly, warm atmosphere from the staff on a rainy day!

Had a wonderful pit-stop at this great cafe whilst travelling the N72(?). Found lots of parking nearby though not outside the cafe but well worth the walk. Staff were super friendly even though the cafe was very busy, the coffee was great and the lemon...meringue was to die for. Will be making another stop here at least once more on our travels.More

On a wild and windy trip through the majestic Knockmealdown Mountains, we paused at Mount Mellaray monastery only to find that the tea room was not opened. Two local ladies directed us to Barrons in nearby Cappoquin and we were not disappointed with their recommendation....A lovely, friendly welcome, spotless loo facilities and delicious, freshly made soup and sandwiches on the 'blaa' bread which is unique to County Waterford. Thoroughly recommended!More

Thanks for your review of our Coffee House, we appreciate all feedback. We were disappointed to read that you were unhappy with the Tuna Melt you ordered, this would not be the norm to have difficulty in locating Tuna within a Tuna Melt Sandwich. We...More

We visit this bakery every time we are staying in County Waterford. We go out of our way to travel to Cappoquin for their delicious blaas and cakes. The staff are lovely and obliging, the cafe is always bustling with locals and tourists. It's definitely...worth a visit, the town itself is very quaint and seems like it has been untouched in over 100 years with original shopfronts and buildings. Barron's blaas along with Hickey's ones in Waterford City are the best ones to be had! Their cakes are perfect with a cup of tea, traditional and homemade tasting. As I don't think it's dog friendly inside, we usually have ours to take-away but Glenshelane Woods is close-by with picnic tables alongside the river and woods so it's a perfect setting even in winter.More

We stopped in here to buy Bla. While there we had lunch which was lovely. We bought some loaves of bla and could not resist the confectionery as we were leaving.

We visited Barron's twice in one week simply because it was so delicious and the food was excellent. On both occasions we went for the coronation chicken on a blaa. A traditional Waterford type of bread and on soda bread. We will be back!!

Experienced a great time at this quaint restaurant/bakery and all the group I was with thoroughly enjoyed the food and setting also. Our server "Aussie Ashley" was so welcoming and friendly to chat with us in the upstairs section and her recommendations went down a...treat. Highly recommend anything on the menu and will definitely be back again.More

Overrated and underwhelmed is how I feel about this place. I have been in on many occasions to buy their genuine sourdough bread. On this occasion, I brought my 2 children for a late lunch (around 3pm) I was very surprised to be told very...curtly that they are only serving a sandwich and I would need to hurry as they were finishing up soon. They had seated us before this snappy warning was issued. I would have left there and then only my 2 kids were promised something nice. The toasted sandwich was mean and bland. The service was sour and the prices are far too high for the quality.More

I enjoyed a delicious fish pie & salad at Barrons last week. Its a charming cafe, great food, very good value & lovely staff. I'm lucky to have bought a brack that I am still enjoying. If you are passing through Cappoquin you have to...stop here. If travelling nearby it's certainly worth making a special detour for this very special cafe. I've always enjoyed down through the years. I hadn't been there for awhile & am so happy it'd even better.More

The BLT was to die for bacon was so tasty...and the Blaa was lightly toasted daughter had an open chicken husband had the knockanore cheese and ham toasty. Grandson had a cookie. From start to finish it was a pleasure will definitely be calling again. Treat yourself and make sure to visit for good service and tasty food.More

Very good coffee and most tasty cakes. Everything is baked on the premises and is fresh. The Blaas (bread rolls with attitude) are to die for. Well worth a stop and is located opposite an otstanding craft shop.

I had a rather disappointing visit here. I was particularly taken aback at their poor Covid-19 practices. There is no table service so to order you must go to the counter. There are no menus, only one chalkboard behind the same small counter. This all...results in a lot of ‘traffic’ around the cafe and people standing in very close proximity inside the door. A lot of very young staff, some quite surly with no obvious person in charge. Limited selection of food, I got the last slice of quiche at 12.50 which, in my opinion, is very early in the day to be running out of menu options. Very poor selection of cakes, I settled on a slice of coffee gateau which was ‘yesterday’s bake’ at best.More
