I stopped here a few times while in Limerick for both breakfast and an afternoon pick-me-up. The coffee, service, and pastries were excellent. The location is ideal for people watching and relaxing with a book. I did try the frittata one day, and the flavors...were good, but the texture was a little rubbery. Other than that, I highly recommend this cute little cafe.More

This place is a lovely little find. In our delicate state after the night before we were starving and wanted breakfast type of food. This place had it all. We were welcomed in the host was friendly attentive and so accomodating to our special requests...one of us needed Gluten free option and was delighted with the choice. All of us found our food amazing. I had the best pancakes I've ever tasted. The waiter and also waitress checked back with us regularly which was so handy as we wanted more things. We even loved the playlist so overall you would absolutely not be disappointed by this wonderful little spot. Quick efficient friendly service. Great value and amazing food. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! 🙌🏼 would return here again 100%More

Liam, we're so sorry that you had a bad experience with us. We had a real Friday the 13th day. A few things went wrong for us. This is no excuse for your experience. If you call in again, please make yourself known to Noel...More

I've been to O&F a few times before and it never fails to disappoint! It is in a great location and the food and service are of a great standard. We had a Caesar salad (excellent) with soda bread (lovely) and a toasted sandwich (a...bit basic. I think the bread used could be better!). We will be returning and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. P.S. the coffee is really good too! 😃More

Olio and Farino in Little Catherine St. Limerick is a gem. Run by owner Noel, his personal dedication to customer service has to be admired. Noel is always on hand to welcome his regulars and new visitors to this bistro. Menu is comprehensive and all...day breakfast is served. Food is cooked while you wait and is simply delicious.. Lovely Italian touches running through it. There is a seating area outside which is protected by canopies and heated with several electric fires.... All giving a great atmosphere in the hustle and bustle of the centre of Limerick City. Highly recommend.More
