The setting is cheery, the staff was warm and friendly, and the coffee was fresh, hot, and good. Patrons seemed to be a mixture of locals as well as travelers like ourselves-- all... More

My friend and I enjoyed an wonderful lunch here today..Great Irish beef burger and local Ballymoe relish as well as a very good leaf lettuce salad and carrot salad with equally good chips..A special entree of pan fried local battered haddock was delicious with the same sides. Finish afterwards with a great sticky toffee pudding slice
