At any one time there are about a dozen staff running around this cafe, yet it's impossible to get service. Portions have in recent times reduced to the point where a brie salad costing nearly €10 consists of a little triangle of factory-produced breaded brie on a limp lettuce leaf. Coffee is like warm water with a hint of coffee flavour. Coleslaw and other salads are of that horrible mass-produced, out-of-a-tub variety. I don't know why they even bother to have a kitchen. This place is a prime example of what happens when money-hungry people who are indifferent to food set up a cafe.

We went to Cafe Lucia while on a trip to Waterford. You wouldn't guess from the outside how classy and modern it is inside. The menu is a little pricey for lunch but absolutely worth it for the quality of the food.

There was more than one vegetarian option for the veggies among us and these were inspired and original. The meat was tasty and vegetables were cooked to perfection. Great food and friendly service. Highly recommended.

Thank mrsweebri

Very busy cafe, need to get there by 12.15pm to beat the lunchtime rush and to get a good seat, very nice salads, good deal is soup and a half panini, a little cramped for buggies when busy
