Went as unannounced group of 11 on a Saturday eve. Staff rushed to accommodate, and put a few tables together. Menu was good (although i wasn't looking for it, there seemed very few fish dishes if any - it was mostly meat). The portions were plentiful, but the quality high and nicely presented too.

This is the type of bar/restaurant that needs people and activity and our early evening visit did not fill the requirement. It is a quirky setting with bar and Seating levels all at different elevations. The decor has got some Gothic style windows which prompted some banter with the service staff on mass times. All in good fun but not hint of the building having a previous life.
Our early evening option main course option was very satisfying and I can give the hamburger and the chicken the seal of approval. Prices were on a par with similar establishments and staff friendly and attentive.

Homebake Cafe can seat up to 30 patrons. Our premises is Wheelchair accessible allowing easy access off street to our full equipt Wheelchair accessable toilet. Large groups catered for but must be booked in advance. We cover breakfast, lunch and evening time - our inStore baked Pizza's are extremely popular.
The clue is in the name, wholesome home style cooking in a snug friendly cafe. The portions are huge, the atmosphere was jolly ( it was Christmas Eve ) and inside it was warm and inviting,Storm Eva was whipping up outside. I would recommend this as a place to refuel and relax. The staff are all genuinely friendly and helpful, you'll enjoy the buzz,quick service and great food and small bill. Say no more, you won't be disappointed!

Visited Cavallinos Saturday night. The decor is rustic but comfortable and the restaurant was busy. The staff are very nice and helpful with information on the dishes. I had the lamb chops with roast vegetables and roast potatoes. My god was it good. Full of flavor. My wife had a pasta dish, she wasn't mad about it as she found it tasting funny. I found it ok. The owner of the restaurant came to talk to us which I have never experienced before. Very nice man he is.
Price wise I found it good value. 4 mains 3 starters, bottle of red wine. 2 desserts and an Irish coffee. 125e. Good value. The next time we are in Carrickmacross we will return to the Cavallinos restaurant.

My brother and I were visiting castle Leslie and feeling peckish called into the Coffee Loft for a bite to eat. What a wonderful little cafe with an amazing staff . The menu is basic but the meals are ample and delicious complimented by superior service from the two young ladies on duty . The bill was very reasonable and I will certainly revisit next time I'm in the area . Well done Roisin you and your friend were a delight to meet and thanks for making us welcome.

We have visited before about a year earlier, tempted in by the great looking food and beautiful shop. However, this time we walked out. While I'm sure it would have been nice. We saw no prices and with five people it's very hard to know what you're going to pay. What are you supposed to do? ask how much every item is that you are considering? Too much hassle and stress. My bill could of been 20 euro for 5 cakes and drinks or 60. We had no idea so we walked. I didn't want to give a lower than average rating as the shop and food look great. So if you like playing guess your bill this place us for you.
