We did not have to wait long. We had a lovely dinner and met some folks there from Michigan. We shared our travel experience. Service was good.

Had the full Irish breakfast (with some slight mods). Staff more than happy to make the changes, and food arrived really quickly. Very tasty breakfast, just the right amount. Cafe very relaxed and inviting. Well worth a visit.

Visited for breakfast recently after being told about the restaurant. Quite busy when we arrived but menus arrived quickly and orders taken soon after. Good service and good ingredients in the full Irish. My only disappointment was the fact that everything was only lukewarm.
