There is a South African vibe to this cafe; what must be the best 'service station' eatery in the land.
There are plenty of signs for it off the main road from Rosslare to Wexford, and it's accessible through a petrol station that is on that main road, making it ideal for a quick stop off. But you might stay longer than you think.
It's warm and friendly inside, with a cracking burgers, brunch, soups, sandwiches, cake menu, nice wine, great tea and coffee, and lovely activities for the kids; including a colouring competition.
Overall, a very sweet place, with a homely vibe and good, honest fare.

visited here during a short holiday to wexford, searched the place out from reviews seen online had lunch here one of the days the service was great the ambience is quirky and cosy our lunches of chickpea and potato cake and goat cheese and black pudding were fantastic as were the fresh and tasty salads which were served also. The coffee and dessert was also excellent. we were so happy with the Lunch we called in on our way home from our holiday a couple of days later for breakfast which too was a really good.

after having passed a night on a ferry (to Rosslare) we decided to look for a lovely cup of tea - yet did not want to end up next to the road (even if there are lots of nice places to visit, too - I am sure of that) - well we drove on for a couple of minutes we saw a sign mentioning karoo farmshop & cafe
it did sound nice - and we tried it
we were not disappointed
at first I thought, that the dishes were quite pricy - baked potato for nearly 10 Euro - but when it was served the large plate was full! packed with delicious side dishes and of course a lovely potatos with different cheeses as it was ordered. We also tried a sandwich - which was served with salads and fries - also delicious and large portion.
We could see that the kitchen used products from the farmshop - as while we were there some needed things (cucumber eg) were fetched from the shop. Staff was very friendly, food was great, the tea (of course we had a pot of tea, too) was great also. After having eaten we found out, that we had gotten new energy - we hadn´t been aware of having needed it after the long sleep on the ferry - but we felt so much better and refreshed after the pause there - that we only can recommend trying :-).

Found this place by accident luckily as I was searching for breakfast, great food, service, ambience and produce to take away if your passing by to Rosslare Harbour give it a go. The locals seem to love it on Saturday morning.
