This was recommended to me by a local, and the locals certainly seem to know all about it. Beautiful, fresh fare for lunch, served promptly and with a smile. What more could you want. I wish they had a branch in every village/town.

Great little cafe, ideal for a break in town. Good coffee and the BEST scones in the west! And if it's not raining (a rare one for the west of |Ireland) you can sit outside and people watch.
