Took a break from my partners shopping spree. Three people; soups, baked ham sandwich, eggs florentine, coffees, mineral water & soft drinks. All pronounced excellent. Great set-up. Queue up, while a very efficient staff member locates a table in advance of the food/order being ready. Great idea and great service. There were some delicious food options available; pulled BBQ'd Pork... More

It was a 1st visit and Bakestone is just one of the best breakfast I had in my life. The Eggs Benedict were excellent., especially the bacon. The cakes, I do not know where to start because there is so much choice, were yummy. Coffee is from Badger and Dodo, who is a renowned coffee roaster in County Cork. I... More

Eggs benedict to die for. It gets really busy in here, so be prepared to queue but it moves quick enough. The breakfast menu is top class

Had lunch here recently, and the salads were very large portion sizes, and delicious. I also had a warm sandwich which was delicious. Coffee was good too. A good place to walk around the Meadows and Byrne shop and a goodgarden centre too. Plenty of free parking.

Can i just say the food in Ballyseedy is top notch and really is hard to beat from sandwiches to salads 5/5 for food. I do wish that they would make their seating system more uniform, better signage is needed at the start of the queue or around the seating area - consistency also needed. Yesterday I sat at a...

Am a regular visitor to Ballyseedy and frequent Bakestone a lot. Sandwiches are pre made and there is no flexibility in changing them. My friend recently ordered a sauerkraut sandwich and asked for a slice of cheese in same but this couldn't be done as "the sandwiches are pre made" One day last week at 11.52 I ordered poached eggs...
