We came in for lunch and found that we could get a table without booking, COVID certs were checked and we were seated. Service was ok - had to ask about specials when we saw them being offered to another table, you need to ask...for water as this isn’t offered either,but otherwise good. Quality of the sandwiches and salad/ fries was good. A good quality cooler was served - would use this place again.More

Strolling around Cong village today we tried PuddleDucks Cafe. We were met at the door our Covid certs were taken efficiently and we were seated at a lovely window table. Our lunch was lovely food nicely presented. The kids loved the pizzas milk shakes and...ice creams. They also have a lovely outdoor area. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Will definitely be back again soon.More

Okay I though the purpose of reviews is to learn and improve however, I seen other comments about bacon not cooked - terrible to order a bacon and cream cheese bagel and the bacon to be white and the fat not crispy who wants to...chew a pile of fat on their breakfast bagel? at €5.50 it needs to be tasty and edible and not left on your plate for the bin. Disappointing!!More

Goat Cheese salad was beautifully presented and very tasty. Friendly staff and prompt service. My partner had a Ciabatta and it was equally tasty. Portions were also substantial

I was cautious of what breakfast options there was based on previous pictures it looked like big fry ups. However there was pancakes, french toast, bagels. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff.

We had lunch here and I would highly recommend it for the food, the service and most importantly at the moment, the adherence to the Covid-19 social distancing and sanitisation rules, which was VERY reassuring. The food is excellent and of great quality. We would...definitely recommend.More
