The only place rival this place, is Caldwells in Dunboyne. Lovely breakfasts, brunches and lunches and the open sandwiches are amazing. Great service and price Would recommend to all

Disappointed to say a portion of pancakes (3 small pancakes) a fruit scone and 2 coffees cost me €17.40 yesterday, these are city centre prices not small village prices regardless of the home-baked element, extremely bad value, won't be returning if prices stay this high.

Prices have gone up in Dunboyne, and portions have reduced, i got brioche, two pieces of french toast and two pieces of streaky bacon, not exactly filling the plate. For the lemon and sugar pancakes....€9, now really! Its city centre prices!

I'm sorry but the layout is dreadful, which doesn't matter if it isn't busy but it was busy when I visited. There are too many tables in the space. I did say the bread was nice - but it wasn't what I asked for and not what... More
