What a wonderful little spot to find in Moate. Shirley, the owner is awesome and wants everyone to have a great experience. Chicken skewers were flavorful and the outdoor seating a huge win on a wonderful day. Thanks Shirley!

Wonderful breakfast of egg, avo, bacon and toast: we were sitting outside in the sunshine! A great place to stop if you've picked up a car in Dublin and want a stop 90 minutes out of town to regroup, relax and enjoy Irish hospitality at...a reasonable price. Or just come.More

The moment we walked in there were multiple people ackowleging us and saying hello, trying to help sit us. The cafe is cute, small and quaint and the food was delicious! I highly recommend this stop for breakfast, coffee or lunch!

A busy buzzing cafe with lots of local visitors, I was with a group of 15 American visitors who all spoke highly of the service & quality of food. Thank you Clare for accommodating us & your friendly hospitality

This Cafè is excellent for food and waiting staff. The owner is very bullying of staff and she creates an awful atmosphere in the cafe. She shouts and pushes people around the floor. She is abusive and needs to be reported to relevant authorities.

Wonderful atmosphere, warmth and hospitality especially from our waitress Mary. The food was ok, but it’s for the ambience we would come back.

Serendipitously ended up at the Tuar Ard Coffee Shop while touring Ireland last week. What a find! Cozy ambiance, great food (order the potato leek soup if they have it!), and the people working there were so friendly and nice. Mary was our server and...went above and beyond to be friendly and efficient.More

As a group of 4 we were happy with the quality of the food. However, one of us ordered bacon and cabbage and realised after starting to eat that there was no cabbage on the plate. We alerted a waitress who said she would rectify...the error. However, having waited some ten minutes, the cabbage was not forthcoming and the waitress was reminded. Her response was incredible as she said she had taken the cabbage to another table in error. Not only did she not apologise or get another portion of cabbage for our table, she laughed as if it was funny. When the bill was paid and the same waitress was reminded of the missing portion of cabbage, she acknowledged that fact but did not apologise or reduce the bill. Having read other reviews, we feel we were unlucky in our experience. However, we will not be returning.More

This place is absolutely amazing. Such a warm and friendly atmosphere. Mary was our waitress and was very accommodating and made us feel right at home. A wide variety of choice to suit every taste bud. We will make sure to visit again.
