Hawthorn Bar on the Lough (Cork)

The Hawthorn Bar and Bistro has one immediate advantage and that is its lakeside location, overlooking the famous Lough.
Called in there this morning for coffee at eleven, having circled the Lough, on foot. Wasn't on my own – far from it, as quite a few customers were enjoying the break.
I enjoyed mine as well, as the swans and ducks floated by outside under a blue (though cold) sky. Two decent coffees and two excellent scones (hot from the oven, just like mother used to make them) went down a treat, total cost €8.00.
While the staff and chefs were busy preparing the upstairs for lunch, there was one modest, polite and efficient barman on duty who looked after the snacks and tidied up the place quickly.
They also do lunch and dinner and, on the basis of the morning snack, I would definitely call there and try out the more substantial menus available later in the day.
