Now called Pa Beach Cafe it is still a reliable place to eat and to have coffee. They have a good range of breakfast/lunch food, a sandwich/panini/bagel cabinet with very good vegetarian and vegan options. It is relaxed with soft and hard seating, inside and...out and is generally a great place to meet and see people.More

Right next door to the Currach Irish Pub, we had lunch a couple of times at the Pa Beach Cafe which was excellent. I had a vegetarian burger and it was delicious!!! Mushroom and brie burger - boy it was good, highly recommended.

What a treat. Along with the Currach Irish Pub Tryphena has to be the best place on the island for a great selection of food. Great coffee, pies, cakes and salads. This is a lovely local cafe. Friendly staff and efficient service. The pies are...superb; chicken and leek, Burgundy beef, steak & mushroom among others. There are sausage rolls and spinach and feta pastries too. There is a great selection of cakes and the salads are creative and fresh.More

Had lunch and breakfast here. Both great meals. Super service. Can recommend. It was called Wild Rose Cafe but recently changed due to new ownership. It's called Pa Beach Cafe now.

First lunch at the old Wild Rose cafe now under new management and called Pah Beach Cafe. It was delicious, I had seafood chowder followed by a homemade Pain au chocolate. So good, meeting friends for lunch again tomorrow. Try it you won't regret it...but you will if you don't. Cheers JossMore

I couldn't even give this cafe a rating. The worse service I have come across. Couldn't even cook an egg. Afraid to order a coffee as he might have burnt the water. Unbelievable that this place is even in business.

We had tea and coffee there a couple of times and on both occasions the service was excellent. The wasn't a great choice for food, but fresh scones were available and we shared a piece of freshly baked apricot and almond tart, topped with yoghurt....Yummy. The cafe was adorned with amusing sayings. Seating was available both inside and out.More

The Wild Rose Café is situated in Tryphena Harbour, in a magnificent setting. We had visited once before many years ago and were quite excited to find that the place was as good as ever. Their coffee was fantastic and we chose toasted sandwiches for...our light lunch which were delicious. Service excellent, staff very friendly.More

We were staying at the Innkeeper's Lodge next door, and their restaurant doesn't do breakfast. The Wild Rose Cafe made a mean coffee and great eggs on toast - very good value and lovely service with a fabulous view over the harbour
