I actually had my Valentine's Day lunch here, and cannot say I was disappointed... The cakes looked so good we decided to have 3 slices: wild berries crumble, lemon merengue and lemon cheesecake. I found the lemon merengue to be the best, as it was perfectly blended between the bitterness of the lemon and the sweetness of the cream. The... More

We had the Black Pudding Salad with Potato Roasties and the Bacon & Black Pudding Toastie with chips. One more outstanding than the other. The Toastie included an apple relish that complimented teh sandwich perfectly.... More

Lovely selection of sandwiches and treats for lunch. Busy cafe but service is quick. Can be difficult to secure seating at peak times.

Nice food and nice staff. Restaurant is a little cramped if you have more than two but otherwise would recommend.

Myself and my husband stopped in here for a bit of lunch on our way to Inchadoney and we were so happy we did. Our sandwiches were so fresh with proper home cooked meat and salads. After seeing the deserts displayed at the counter we couldn't help but order them too with more teas and coffees ! The sponge cake... More

This was such a gorgeous restaurant. We had a wonderful roast dinner with so many different vegetables it was incredible. Nothing was too overwhelmingly huge but boy did we get full up... So sad that we couldn't manage a pudding, so they did a take out one for us, which just prolonged the happiness. Keep up the good work ladies,... More

We had breakfast here on three occasions during our recent stay near Clonakilty. Everything is freshly cooked with quality ingredients sourced locally. Service was friendly and efficient. We would certainly call in again - hopefully to try lunch another time.

A wonderful oasis offering meals, but their coffee and cake is wonderful. A wide choice of freshly made cakes/ desserts.
