I visited this small cafe some weeks ago with my "very pregnant" daughter. The lady in charge was so helpful and made sure we had the big table even though there were only two of us. The food was delicious especially the yummy coffee cake!...More

I say no more. €24 for two fish pies that had 2 pieces of fish in it literally! The most expensive potato pie if one should wish to indulge! Shame as the place has a nice feel to it!
