Fresh food with excellent prices. I had a salad plate which consisted of a green salad, beet salad, pasta salad, and feta salad for approx. 12 euro. The bakery items are fresh, numerous & delicious. Several locals recommended going here for breakfast (maybe someday for us).

We were in Doolin for a week with about 50 other people for my brother-in-law's wedding and wanted to go here for one last breakfast, 6 of us and a baby. Came in at about 11am and the place was empty. As you would because you want to sit together and there's no one in the front we put two... More

Dear Ricardo thank you for your review. However i am saddened to hear that you felt the need to leave the cafe before speaking with myself regarding putting tables together for you and your family. As you may try to understand at the weekend and especially last weekend with a festival on in doolin we do get extremely busy at... More

Beautiful cute cafe. After walking the cliffs of Moher we had our meal here yesterday being part of a group of 20 plus and we were not disappointed. The food was so fresh and tasty and so reasonable priced. Great variety of food and lovely desserts to finish off your meal. You won't regret calling here.

I love Doolin Cafe & visit at least once a week. The food is so fresh & tasty. All homemade which is so difficult to get these days. The staff are friendly. My favourite is the chick pea burger😍 the deserts are so tempting. I highly recommend Doolin Cafe for variety, fresh food & the fact that they cater for... More

Ireland is pretty hit and miss for decent food. Growing exhausted of pub food, this restaurant was a welcomed surprise. When in Doolin eat here.

We ordered the Irish breakfast and scrambled eggs. - Food was not fresh, straight out of prepacked frozen packages - Bread served after we finished eating breakfast - Waitress was not nice and not clear regarding the content of the meals. We ended up paying an extra 8 euros for her misleading us. No compensation at all. Food was bad,... More

Okay food and probably the best choice when you're in Doolin. We had some quiches, potato cake & a latte. Tasteful but not outstanding. Too bad there's not much seating space outside. Service was friendly.

Excellent breakfast Friendly staff Nice place Easy to park Very good coffee We were there twice, had the mini breakfast. The day after we had a typical breakfast in a 4 stars hotel and the Irish breakfast plate was just as good there as the one of the Doolin Café They also have things to takeaway for lunch
