Me and my boyfriend stopped in spur of the moment at a busy lunch hour, seated promptly and order taken from a friendly waitress, soup was good. Good deal half panini and soup for around seven euro. A bit cramped but none the less a lovely little cafe.

We recently had lunch in this beautiful cafe, which is a little gem in the city centre. The food is homemade and top quality with a fantastic variety. The atmosphere is cosy, warm and inviting. But what really tops everything (even the amazing desserts) is the staff. They are the perfect mix of being friendly, courteous and extremely helpful. We... More

Went in to have lunch on Sunday and it was virtually empty but we were seated directly inside the door because we had our child's buggy with us. It was absolutely freezing outside and every time the door was opened we were frozen; our three year old was asleep in the buggy so we asked to be moved to one... More

I visit this little gem of a cafe nearly every week and it never disappoints me. All the produces are fresh, all the soups home made, their side salads have a twist each week with a portion of something different added and always very tasty. Their dessert selection is delicious and all portions are large, sometimes too large. I would... More

Popped in for a quick bite, tea and scones. It's a lovely place, nice seating, slightly decadent feel about it in a nice way, friendly staff, well worth a visit.

Ive ate here six times and I've had to send food back twice as it was either too undercooked or burnt into a lump of coal it was that uneatable. It's a real shame because the other four times the food has been amazing! And the staff are so friendly and polite and the menu is amazing. It's just those... More

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.
