This is a lovely place to pop into for delicious cakes and lovely coffee and hot chocolate. The carrot cake, per title, is scrumptious. Staff are friendly and the decor is very eclectic and yet homely.

Went last night for one of the monthly Tapas nights. Was not quite sure to expect from Irish Tapas. The food was all tasty and plentiful. Service was good and the drinks reasonable value and good to have some local beers. Food wise the highlight was the melt in the mouth Guinness Brownies. If you get a chance to do... More

We especially love visiting for family breakfasts. Our 3 year old daughter always ask to go, after we have been to the library (which is opposite). The staff are very accommodating and the cafe is always nice and clean.

I was disappointed to read your review. Unfortunately we are now suffering from being busier at times than we can perhaps manage efficiently. As you have seen for yourself we are quite small and very busy, and as much as we would love to expand, we are constrained by the size of the building. We are also constrained in the... More

Popped in for a quick lunch while in town. It's ok. For lunch only as they don't do a dinner service it seems. Glad to see a nice coffee shop run by an independent.

KafeBloc, Owner at Kafe Bloc, responded to this review

Thanks for your comments Mark, although we were a bit disappointed with the 3 star rating! We are what we are, a daytime cafe offering great food and drinks, so a low rating on the basis of not having a dinner service when we don't make any claims to such is a little unfair. Regards. Tony More
