A great place on the quay in Waterford to put down the shopping bags, rest the feet and Enjoy a nice coffee while the world passes by outside. A nice selection food and pastries is available.

Just popped in for a coffee for the first time this week and was bowled over by the warm, friendly, welcome that we got. Obviously some great characters working there, which was fun. Lovely coffee and great cakes.

Had a late lunch here recently and we were left a little disappointed. The cafe is a cute little place on the quays with lots of awards on display outside. Staff were nice.

We visited Waterford and were looking for somewhere to eat lunch when we came across Berfranks. The sign said Gluten Free available and we went in. Pleased to say we had a great lunch and the staff were very pleasant. Try it.
