Each time I've eaten in the Builín Blasta - as I did in Feb this year and on other occasions - I've found the food tasty, homecooked and served by friendly staff. Really good soup and bread, varied salads and tempting cakes; and great to...More

Had lunch here last week. The soup and sandwiches were lovely, very wholesome and tasty. It was nice and warm on a very cold day and the views were lovely.

This has to be the best tasting coffee I've ever had and the cakes are to die for. While a little on the high price that is the only complaint one could give. Will definitely go back again.

Dropped in for a quick cuppa and found it so good we came back for lunch. The food was really fresh and tasted homemade. I was so impressed with the salad dressing I bought some to take home. Well worth a trip.
