This is our second visit and this was for breakfast as opposed to lunch (which was Great!) And we both really enjoyed it. Very friendly staff and great food. Will certainly go back

My second visit here and it was good as I remembered. They have a huge menu ranging from the typical Irish fry (anyway you like it), pancakes, sandwiches, burgers and everything in between. We had a variety of meals, from chicken caesar salad with brown...More

Plus: Friendly staff. Tasty "sit down chipper/restaurant food". Minus: Dublin top end prices, on the outskirts of Cavan town. If over priced chipper food is for you then this is your place. Even the overpriced ice cream is cheap vanilla. But if money is not...More

this is a family friendly cafe with a lot to offer the hungry traveller,with foods from all around the world form the american eggs benedict made famous by the waldorf hotel,to fajitas to fish and chips this cafe loves what it does and constantly update the menu to please as many as possible. so if you only need to take the waight off with a latte, or want to fill up on an american grill we cater to all. but if you feel you want to try a bit of history why not try our Guinness world record "World largest commercally available full irish/english breakfest" its not for the faint hearted.
