My elderly mother, who has has quadruple by-pass surgery and has rheumatoid arthritis, was told by staff that there were no customer toilets. After finishing her meal, she was told to go to the public toilets which, according to staff, were just around the corner. Well, my mother needed to be driven there because of her mobility and health issues. And when she got there they were closed as it was after 6pm. Staff said she couldn’t use the staff toilets as she would have had to walk through the kitchens.

I don’t know what the law and building regulations have to say about premises serving food and providing toilets, but I find it astonishing that an establishment such as Cafollas wouldn’t want to provide such facilities for their customers.

Finally got back to Cafolla's in Conway Square for the first time since 1961....... only to find that they still have the best ice cream and friendliest service ever ! Thanks to Catherine and her fantastic team we had a really enjoyable experience again, even outside in the drizzle (well it was at the height of that 'heat wave in Ireland). Well done Cafolla's in Conway Square, and here's to the next century !

We really used to enjoy the fare here. So from that statement you can tell that we no longer visit. I remember the times when the service was really good, the breakfasts were lovely, non greasy and hot. However on one occasion, the waitress constantly walked by us and served others who came in after us and no attempt was made to take our order. Are you thinking "why not call the waitress and say something." A waiter/waitress is there for the sole purpose of seeing to the customer and as she knew we had not been served as there was no cutlery on the table as they normally do once you have ordered, we got up and walked out. However we decided to give it another go some months later. Yes, our order was taken quickly, but when the food arrived it was cold and so greasy had to send it back. As for the once beautiful chips, they were hard and cooked several times. So no more for us.
