It's a great place for having lunch (fantastic meals) and also for enjoying tea or coffee. The staff is very friendly and the coffeeshop spreads a nice welcoming atmosphere- I love O&F and I recommend it to everyone!

Limerick of a Sunday is normally very quiet and places to have a cup of tea/coffee are few and far between. However, on Little Catherine Street, there's an Italian Restaurant called Olio & Farina.
