Nice place but ladies toilet a bit unpleasant. There was no window & the wall fan wasn't working therefore no ventilation.

The staff are friendly and efficient, the decor pleasing and it is conveniently located in the centre of the city. But most of all it has delicious coffee and great homemade scones! I will return.

My wife and I have being passing this place for ages and Wednesday we tried it out for a quick lunch, it was worth the stop. The pasta of the day was excellent and the soup was tasty warm and filling. The place was busy...More

Lovely tasty options for lunch, great coffee and absolutely delicious desserts. The shabby chic decor is very homely and cosy. Combined with the friendliness of the staff it feels very welcoming. Very handy for lunch or coffee when in Limerick city centre for the day.
