Have met friends/family here numerous times over the years and on every occasion lunch was delicious, tasty, fresh and served by helpful friendly staff. Delighted that pilgrims have finally got a warm, bright place to recharge their batteries with shuttle bus for the elderly or less able. Need more of the same in Knock for the large numbers who attend.

This is a perfect spot for a nice breakfast. Nothing fancy just good food each time you go. Cafe is lovely bright and clean. Can be very busy pending the day for instance; Sunday after mass.

Good meal, very friendly staff. Busy place so be prepared to queue. One negative - the table was wiped just before we got to it and was still wet. There was a very strong smelly dirty dish cloth whiff which was off-putting. I wiped our table with a tissue from my bag which helped a bit. Will bring milton wipes... More

I visited during a visit to Knock with my mother on the recommendation of a friend. It was extremely busy and staff were rushed off their feet which led to us waiting for a while to be served. We had tea and cake, which was nice but I felt it was very expensive for what we got.

I always come to Cafe le Cheile for lunch when I am on holiday - the food and service is always very good and is exceptionally clean! I am a sole traveller but I never feel uncomfortable eating here - nice atmosphere! The Cafe is set in the same building as the museum and is also in a beautiful location... More
