Ballymaloe Cafe in Shanagarry

The Ballymaloe Café 
(at the back of the shop)

Three thirty for a scone. A bit much. Even if the venue was the Café at the back of the shop in Ballymaloe House. Called there today and two large cups of coffee and two scones came to €13.20, each item costing €3.30.

We had been aiming for lunch but came a bit too early and so settled for coffee and scones (with butter and jam, no cream). Lunch might have been better from the point of view of value as the prices look reasonable.

It is quite a small room, seating for maybe 25. Service is fine and friendly. The coffee was excellent and so too was the scone though it was a fair bit smaller than those, of similar quality, served in places such as Nash 19, Greene’s and The Hawthorn on the Lough. Just that high price!
