It is lovely when one finds an eatery with welcoming staff, airy room, an engaging menu and food which lives up to expectations.
While spending a few days in Waterford on the south coast of Ireland I came across such a place. It is in Waterford city, beside the Medieval Museum and housed in the Bishop’s Palace Museum.
It is a small eatery with seating for approximately 25 patrons. On entering one is greeted with a friendly hello. Unlike so many places the food is ordered at the table.
I was there one Sunday morning. Only twenty minutes after opening and we were lucky to get a table. It sat snugly into the window. The food on the menu was wide and varied. While perusing the menu a jug of water was provided by a friendly waitress.
I decided on French Toast with tea, while my companion settled on American Style pancakes with coffee. The breakfast arrived accompanied by a separate serving for each of us of fruit salad. The maple syrup came in a jug and not randomly pored over the breakfast as so often happens. My companion’s pancakes were light and fluffy.
We were both very impressed with the Bishop’s Palace Café and would totally recommend it.
