Wide variety of items available in such a cute place. Breakfast, lunch items mostly. Great attentive staff. Wonderful atmosphere. Not expensive. Highly recommend.

Food is gorgeous here and the desserts are to die for. Friendly staff and a nice place to eat. One little down fall is that I do find some of the tables are bit close together and can be a bit cramped for space. Not ideal for anyone with a pram or buggy

Had a late lunch, and we're throughly delighted with the flavour, quality and freshness delivered. Busy cafe but more than able to cater for everybody, staff friendly and chatty too even though they were so busy.

This is a very small restaurant offering a good Irish breakfast in a warm and inviting atmosphere in downtown Waterford.

I've been visiting this cafe every time I go to Waterford (monthly or twice a month) because their food is nice even though it's very expensive but my recent visit is the last. I've often overlooked the way staff looks down on anyone that doesn't look Irish or dressed enough, plus they talk over senior citizens before they're allowed finish... More

Although this café is small it is wonderfully friendly and cosy. Just right for a catch up with friends. The coffee and food is great

I was at the hospital and a friend had recommended this cafe for a place to eat nearby. The food was great, staff wonderful. It's just a little cramped spacewise.
