QAfter an hour in the playground or a brisk walk in the park, this is the perfect remedy. Food is delicious, tea is like a balm and the ice cream hits the spot! I love this place.

A nice place for a bite to eat, very clean. I had a nice coffee made by a nice chatty barista and it was very reasonably priced. I would recommend it!!

Went today for some lunch & ordered the " Warm Cajun Chicken Salad " , which consisted of processed chicken, tomato, lettuce & some dressing , it was so basic for €8,considering what you can get for the same price in the neighbouring eatery The Fumbally, my 7 year old son would do better, a real let down

Went for lunch with a friend on a sunny day. Situated in a nice courtyard in fumbally square, with a lovely outdoor seating area. My friend had soup which was great and the lasagne I had was really tasty. Very good cappuccinos also. Very good value and staff friendly and efficient, and a nice decor and atmosphere.

First the good stuff. Sitting in a nice courtyard setting. Very clean. Excellent coffee. Good outside seating. However breakfast was poor. Deep fried bacon, black and white pudding and mushrooms, spoiled a good egg and excellent toast. They could do so much better. Lots of choice around this area. Pull your socks up Olive! You have a lot going for... More

Dish of the day is great value. Standards are very high here. Food is tasty and plentiful. Locals and people working in the area enjoy coming here. Coffee is excellent. Staff are attentive and helpful. I most definitely will be back.

Tucked away at bottom of Fumbally Lane, is this little gem of a cafe. Bright, airy and spotless, with delicious food at very good prices. The pasta dish of the day at 7.95 was hard to refuse. Staff are friendly and service is very good. It also has a beautiful outdoor area, that gives it a wonderful holiday feel.
