Atmosphere; food: Staff Really Great Spotlessly clean modern and funky. The buildingit is a long narrow shape. At the back it is a great place to have a meeting and get some work done, or an intimate Girls Reunion!

Great coffee and yummy flapjack. Lovely to sit outside in the sun. Here with a few friends and we all wondered why we didn't come more often! Highly recommended.

I have been visiting Apple Betty's regularly for a few years now and would just like to say that the food is consistently great, the girls are always so welcoming and the whole experience is something we look forward to whenever we go. My favourite is the toasted panini with chicken, Brie and pesto - served with a small dressed... More

Lovely cafe tastefully decorated. Attentive friendly staff. I had the scrambled eggs and bacon, hubby had soup and Sandwich. We both had tea and the bill came to only €12.95. Food was fresh and delicious. Highly recommended.

I formed a love affair with the Full English Breakfast very early in life and (be it English, Scots, Welsh or Irish) I know a good cooked breakfast when I see one. Full Irish was the order of the day and at 10 Euros that included 2 rounds of toast, a large pot of tea and a decent slice of... More

I went into Apple Betty's on a break from work and to meet a client. The coffee is very nice and the atmosphere is friendly. The cafe is in a great position, right in the middle of town. Nothing else to say about the place, it's just really nice!

Whenever I am in Skibbereen I just have to recharge at Apple Betty's. A good cappuccino and whatever cake looks the best that day. Always tongue-swallowing good. Take for instance "death by chocolate"... absolutely divine! A good selection of lunches - more than just delicious soups, salads and quiches - to choose from, quiet comfortable place to sit and eat.... More
