I had to score this a zero. Last Friday at five minutes to two (so nearing the end of the Lunch shift and well after the morning coffee period) I ran into the cafe to grab a fruit scone to go. When I asked a worker for this he said no problem and went to bag a scone for me, however he was shot down by another member (I assume the manager) who advised me that as there were "only" 3 of the fruit scones left they were keeping them for customers that come in to sit down. I found this a bit hard to take considering a) that it was pretty late in the day for a "cafe", thus it was very possible that the rest of the scones would not sell, b) this seemed to be a made up policy as not all members of staff are aware of it c) the manager was quite rude when informing me.

Go here very often and can happily say the soup is always delicious as is the coffee. Service is good and it's always busy which is a good sign!!

I've eaten here loads of times and never thought to write a review. The first time was last year and what got me coming back was the Soup and Bread. Now I'm not a big soup fan normally but I was in a hurry. The service was good, for a cafe really good, they're fast, polite and they know wht their customers need. Anyway I ordered the soup, and you get a bowl as big as your head, it was lovely and creamy and smooth. This came with two huge pieces of homemade brown bread; this is by far the nicest bread I've ever eaten. It's thick and a little sweet and just gorgeous with the real butter they give you. You'll be stuffed and all this was only €5. I've been back a few times and the soup is always amazing even the flavours that I usually wouldn't go for.

Came across this place while in the shopping centre and initially popped in for a coffee and cake. On reading the menu we decided on having a late lunch instead. I ordered the chicken which came on a gorgeous bed of couscous and roast vegetables. My husband had the fish and chips. The food was extremely tasty and satisfying. The service was swift and friendly, and the place was buzzing. The prices weren't outrageous either. Well worth a visit to this place.
