Was here today with the lovely Ursula. ''Twas very cosy and we were served quickly by lovely staff. Delicious lattes and the most yummy carrot cake for me and hot rhubarb pie for herself. I'd give it five stars except it's very crammed in there with little space and we have to move stuff around to let people in and... More

A staff person at our hotel in Cork told us about this lovely cafe. All the food was fresh and delicious! The servers were kind and welcoming. Great food, good prices in a charming, very intimate space.

Called in looking for tea and scones but the lovely girl behind the counter convinced us to go for the brownies... SO glad we did, no exaggeration they were the nicest brownies I've ever had! Lovely atmosphere, definitely stop by!

Staff are a pleasure to deal with and the food always hits the mark. My daughter loves the waffles with bacon and maple syrup. It's quite compact but this never bothers us. It's... More
