“best coffee in town, and i know my coffee!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Stopped here for coffee and got a good one, which is very hard to come by in Ireland. Also had some cafe - the Guinness&Bailey's cupcakes were delicious! The staff were utterly rubbish though - lazy, disinterested, inattentive college girls who spend their day gossiping with their mates and ignoring the customers - you know the type. just order at the counter and give them a reminder when they've forgotten about you. The coffee and cake are worth it!

“Coffee heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

The coffee in this place is amazing. It is so good that you will keep coming back. They mix their own beans so it's very unique.
Apart from the coffee, the good is very very tasty, fresh and reasonably priced.
Service is excellent and friendly.
You will find it hard to get better in the south west.

Thank TheMongrel1

“Great good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed we'll cooked tapas but they missed the expected kicked. It was fresh, nice but no spice. The children's menu was limited but very we'll cooked. I return if they add a Spanish kick to the tapas.

“Superb tapas menu & great coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

Heard a lot about the tapas menu in this place and after trying it out would definitely recommend!

The meat and cheese board is very tasty, and we followed that up with three tapas, all of which were extremely nice, especially the tian of Spa crab meat and guacamole salad - very fresh! We had a shared gluten free chocolate brownie, two exceptional coffee's and two glasses of wine, all of which came to under €60.

Great music, nice layout and friendly staff. Although would love to see a chicken option from the tapas menu next time!

Would definitely recommend and will definitely be going back!

“Young atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

food was gorgeous, the burger was delicious. Spicy couscous was good, with too much fruit but lovely mint yoghurt sauce. There's a young vibe with world music playing nice lightening and decoration, young friendly staff.
