Lunch here is only divine! The goats cheese wrap toasted is only stunning, mouth watering! Great value too. Great coffee. Seating is tight and all high so not overly suitable for young children but I would recommend regardless! A must go to place!!!

I ate lunch here recently and availed of the sandwich, soup and Americano for €10. The soup and sandwich were delicious and excellent value. I would highly recommend. I got my sandwich in ciabatta but the wholemeal looked excellent aswell. A great lunch spot.

How refreshing to find a café for lunch where the people really care about the food they serve. I had a wonderful salad for lunch, so much nicer than a bland sandwich. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
